Port Talbot, United Kingdom

The British drama, The Gospel of Us, had its world premiere at the Apollo Cinema in Port Talbot on April 9 with locals adding their own Beirut-fueled drama before the opening day:

DISMAYED Port Talbot locals have started a clean-up campaign ahead of the world premiere of The Gospel of Us near vandalised buildings at the town’s Apollo cinema.

When picking up her tickets at the cinema, Lisa Jones said: “I was horrified to see the derelict burger drive-through with all its windows smashed and broken glass everywhere, which was next to an abandoned bowling alley. It looks like Beirut. I’m ashamed the premiere is taking place there for all to see.”

Lisa Jones is truly worthy of a Looks Like Beirut certificate. Lisa, feel free to contact me and I’ll have your certificate mailed to you.
