LEICESTER SQUARE, LONDON
Leicester Square is the cinema centre of London. It is claimed that the Square has the cinema with the largest screen and the cinema with the most seats (over 1600).
The most famous cinema, the Odeon, is on the east side of the square. The Odeon had the first digital projector in Europe (1999), and is the largest single-screen cinema in the United Kingdom. The cinema can hold 1,683 people with seats arranged in circle and stalls. The Empire, on the north of the Square, is the second- largest cinema, with 1,330 seats in the main theatre, as well as eight smaller screens.
The cheapest cinema in Leicester Square is 'The Prince Charles'. This cinema often shows films a few weeks later than some of the others, so if you don't mind being a bit behind the times and want to save some money this could be the place for you.
Leicester Square is also where the stars come out at night. People wait (often out in the cold) and hope they can see Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts or Brad Pitt as they step out of their limousines to attend the first night of their new movie. Watch out for the screaming fans!

ANN’S JOURNEY TO MANCHESTER
In May, I go to Manchester because my friend has a wedding party. I speak to my friend about the journey and she gives me the directions. She says that I can travel either by train or by bus. I choose to go by train because I know that it is quicker and more comfortable, even though I pay more money. I buy a return ticket and I take a train from Stoke station. I spend an hour on the train. I sit by the window and read an interesting book. The conductor is very kind and tells me when it is time to get off. The train comes on time and I get to Manchester four hours before the wedding. I go shopping and find a lovely present for my friend. I think it is a very nice day.
