Seating

Post by RoadkillQueen »

Sure this has been asked many times and is a totally stoopid question.
Group of friends going together but buying tickets separately. When buying online you have to choose a seat - will I be forcibly stpled to this seat the entire fest or is it a seating free for all first come first served per movie so we can be together ?

You will have to choose a seat when you book.

At quieter times there are usually some areas of the cinema that are empty but during sell-out screenings you'll have to sit in the seat you've booked.

You will be able to move around due to people watching on other screens and the first and last movies of the day (bar Thu) are usually quieter as some people prefer an earlier finish or lie in.

go straight to the desk to pick up the pass when you arrive. You'll get a lanyard to wear for the festival with it,along with the program.

may not have them sorted for you by Wed though - you may have to wait for the Thursday to collect. Give them a ring on the day to check, save yourself a trip.

You should be able to pick up your lanyard on the Wednesday, no problem. Last year I got my weekend pass online and picked up the lanyard in July while in London for 'The Dark Knight Rises' at the IMAX. They had no problem grabbing the lanyard for me even though it was nowhere near August. :)

Yep - I picked mine up last Wednesday. No issues at all - he had to go to the back room to get it, but it took 30 secs.

They don't have the programmes yet though - presumably we'll get those on 22/8.
