A screening of the movie The NeverEnding Story that started in 1984 is still continuing in a Welsh cinema.
Five people are still at the Monico Cinema in Porth, having entered paid to enter 31 years ago.
Screen projector Sheila Lardarse told WalesOnCraic:
“I’ve been here 31 years and I was hoping that these people would fuck off so I can go home. I got loads of washing to do. But I guess that’s what you sign up for when you go to watch The NeverEnding Story. You’d think they’d at least put some breaks in it. One girl in there has been married twice already and she’s never left the cinema. I don’t know how they do it.”
The NeverEnding Story is a West German epic fantasy film based on the novel of the same name by Michael Ende, according to the experts on Wikipedia. Excerpts of the film are often show on TV but never in its perpetual entirety.
Fan Ginger BoggleEyes said:
“I’m getting a bit bored of it now to be honest. I’ve heard that the Berlin Wall has come down and that Jack Duckworth has died and it’s making me think that I’m missing out on the real world. I might come out in the near future – all depends on what happens in the film.”
The NeverEnding Story starred Noah Hathaway, who has since moved on with his life.
