Someone named Ira, writing at&nbsp;<a href="http://jasonwatchesmovies.blogspot.com/2013/08/jasons-friend-ira-watches-cornetto.html">Jason Watches Movies</a>, says that "This last film of the trilogy, all three of which have at least to some extent revolved around drinking and pubs, is inarguably the "drunkest" of the three, and yet, it is also the most sobering."

And is currently screening in 35mm at the beautiful Grand Lake Theatre in Oakland? I need to attend the Grand Lake more often. Not only is it a vintage theatre with beautiful decor, as tastefully 'plexed into a four-screen venue as I can imagine (and therefore a world away from a cookie-cutter chain theatre), but it's locally owned and operated, and even retains the ability to show 35mm (and even, as last Fall's booking of </span><i>The Master </i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">proved, 70mm) prints as well a digital. Currently all of its four houses are running films on 35mm: </span><i><a href="http://www.hellonfriscobay.blogspot.com/2013/07/fruitvale-station-2013.html">Fruitvale Station</a></i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">&nbsp;on the spacious (former) balcony, </span><i>Kick-Ass 2</i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">&nbsp;in one of the smaller downstairs rooms, </span><i>We're the Millers</i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">&nbsp;alternating with </span><i>The Way, Way Back </i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">(the latter a digital presentation) in the other small room, and </span><i>The World's End </i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">in the main theatre, where it will be preceded by a Wurlitzer organ performance before the Friday and Saturday evening shows.</span></b><br /><b><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;"><br /></span></b><b><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">If traveling to Oakland is just not your bag, it's possible to see </span><i>The World's End</i><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: normal;">&nbsp;on DCP elsewhere. May I suggest the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.voguesf.com/">Vogue</a>&nbsp;in San Francisco as the best digital option, as it is also locally owned and operated, and a single-screen theatre. Though it converted its projection equipment to state-of-the-art digital earlier this year, I'm told it actually retains the ability to screen 35mm prints on occasion, a fact which helped it snare two of the six mini-festivals that will make up the San Francisco Film Society's&nbsp;<a href="http://www.sffs.org/Exhibition/Fall-Season.aspx">Fall Season</a>&nbsp;in the coming months.
