One fan said: “I won some free tickets for myself and a friend by entering a competition on The Printworks Facebook page. We were excited to be seeing Ride Along 2 before it is released, but when Kevin Hart and Ice Cube walked in to the screen before it started, I thought I was hallucinating – it was so surreal.”
Kevin also had a Hart to Hart at the Manchester City Football Academy where he took part in a penalty shoot-out against namesake, City goalkeeper Joe Hart.
