Live Streamed Events in London
2016 has seen live streaming, in general, jump to new levels. Whether you’re watching your mate on Facebook, a Boiler Room live stream or wasting two hours watching a live feed of that puddle, there’s now endless ways to join the conversation while it’s happening. Missing out on tickets for events is also quickly becoming a thing of the past, thanks to live streams. And now some of our favourite venues in London are getting involved in the live action. Why see it tomorrow, when you can watch it today?
Louis Theroux: My Scientology Movie
The godfather of documentaries is coming to London for a special screening of My Scientology Movie and a live Q&A at The Southbank Centre as part of London Literature Festival. As expected, the event sold out pretty damn quickly, but you can still catch Theroux being live streamed in cinemas across the country .
