Has anyone tried booking tickets over the phone or are you all phone phobic like me?

It's beyond parody, this happens every single year without fail

Phones are evil. Eeeeeeevil!

Besides, how am I supposed to pick between the lousy leftover seats without a plan?

I'm waiting on the phone just now.

I'm sure we'll all get tickets, it's just a question of getting the screen we want :eek:

In the phone queue now - but have started going backwards in the queue! Looks Vue can't even get phone bookings right :evil:

Looks like Vue are making 10p a minute out of all of us on the 'phone due to the website not working. Hmmm... :roll:

Really, really annoyed. Just spoken to Vue cinemas (and, after a 20 minute wait - paid £2 for the privilege). The girl I spoke with told me that they were told LAST NIGHT that they would 'physically not be able to book tickets" for Frightfest over the phone.

When I asked why they didn't, at least, tweet this out - she said that she didn't know.

She suggested that I pop into Vue cinema to pick up the tickets in person. I live in Bristol. However, I am getting the feeling that doing so will be slightly more time effective than dealing with Vue.

What a shambles. The FF ticketing page lists a number for phone bookings.
