It's premiering in the UK these days, from what I gather: Pictures from the gala screening: https://www.gettyimages.no/photos/jason ... st#license

I searched for a cinema showing Hotel Mumbai, and could not find a single one within reasonable travelling distance that is showing it! I looked last night - if it is being widely distributed in the UK it should still be on, so I can only conclude that it is not on the list of most cinemas.

I checked the art house places, and the only hit I came across was one solitary showing at Glasgow Film Theatre last week that I could not have gone to anyway - and that was not included on their weekly film list so I would not have known, except I did a specific search for Hotel Mumbai.

I suppose it is on Sky TV because they are one of the producers, but I don't have that.

That's disappointing, servalan. Maybe it will go into major release soon. I had to drive 2 hours to L.A. to see it. It was well worth the drive.

Americans and Europeans have different perspective on distances. :bag:

That's too bad, servalan. Maybe ut will be released on DVD in the UK soon?

I couldn’t find it around here, either, so I ended up renting it through our local library system.

The movie itself was riveting, and Jason’s role was...interesting.

(I hope this qualifies as “spoiler-free” enough for those who haven’t seen it yet....) 😁😇
