Discussion in 'Brixton' started by editor, Mar 1, 2012.
There's a Costa Coffee opposite the station! Doesn't look open yet though.
It's been open for quite a few weeks
That's down to its dreadful design. It always looks closed.
Oh, I hadn't noticed!
Is there something going on in Brixton on ir Brockwell Park today?
Something to do with the strike maybe or something else?
I can hear a lot of noise coming from somewhere including a lot of shouting earlier.
Oh, maybe it's a picket outside Jubilee Primary and they are really going for it.
Road works were due on Morval Road...
Still, it's only taken them 103 years to realise that
Hmmmm. I am not sure about garlic bread in terms of value versus pizza. How much is the garlic bread?
Sorry to change the subject but I witness a vicious assault, while I was on the 3 bus, at the bus stop near the police station.
Some poor guy got the hell beaten out of him for accidentally bumping a guy while trying to get on the bus...in all the years I live in brixton, Ive never seen this kind of violence at first hand...very shockingly, what the hell is wrong with people...
Did the police arrest the perpetrator?
That's what happens when the sun comes out see. Some people can handle it, some get niggly
Driver called the police but the guy just melted away into the crowd : -( more than an hour later and I'm still a bit shocked by the experience...not the hard brixtonite, I thought I was..
£2-3 or so
Speaking as a hardened Brixtonite, if you've got an ounce of humanity you will be shocked over an hour later. There'd be something wrong with you if you weren't.
The old Cafod offices on Stockwell Road are being turned into retail units at the moment, and the defunct-club over the road whose name I can never remember had builders working inside it yesterday too.
The Ritzy comes in at number 3 in the UK's ten best cinemas.
The Blue J bar? It's been empty for ages....would prob make a good cafe. Can't see there ever being a bar/pub/club there again, given the complaints from the new flats they built opposite.
I like the Ritzy, but is it really one of the best cinemas in the country?
Or perhaps it's just been recently discovered by a journalism student just out of college...
Do believe I need to turn the page over on the calendar.
Probably, you know the type that head to Brickers these days, or "in motion" Loughborough Junction. I'm not sure what makes a "good cinema", as long as the seats are ok, the prices are ok and the projector doesn't break down too often, that's pretty much it, because surely people's tastes in films vary widely? Ritzers seems to show quite a few mainstream films as well as 'specialist' ones.
They need to improve their concession prices I reckon
I think I've been twice in the 4 years I've lived in Brixton, unfortunately it's just not a cheap evening out - concessions or otherwise - once you've bought a ticket, a drink and something to nibble on. But how much of that is down to the film companies setting prices and then cinemas having to cover their overheads I'm not sure.
I don't buy anything to nibble on. I'm perfectly capable of sitting through a 2 hour film without crunching in someone's earhole
I don't really understand why people sit there doing that. I bet they don't sit at home munching all the way through a film and slurping the remnants of their coke through a straw
I heard that there have been a few muggings on Leander Rd recently, anyone else heard the same?
No. They order in pizza instead. Domino's should open a cinema and complete the circle.
That's why the country has a weight problem
Quite a few yes. The police response is lamentable. Though we are trying to shame them into action.
On Sunday at 3am, one Leander resident was coshed and woke up in hospital with serous head injuries
Another neighbour told me a mugging gang posts look-outs at both ends of the street with the 'attack party' at the bend in the road.
In other cases, victims are apparently followed from bus stops.
My flatmate said she'd heard about someone being hit over the head and that she was worried about walking home on her own. I'll need to be more vigilant....
yep. it's crazy. one guy got mugged twice in five days - outside his house.
don't wear headphones and keep a 360-degree lookout.
these guys are as clever as they are vicious.
