Fantastic organising. I prefer the usual experience of sitting in the main screen for 5 days and seeing all films and guests and it seems this way i can do that and pick up a discovery films as and when. Well done again...pint at the phoenix is in order for all.

If 'The Guest' is playing at the same time then I assume the Director Adam Wingard and Writer Simon Barrett won't be attending?

Unless they schedule each screening 10 minutes apart, we'll have to wait and see with the full announcement tomorrow.

5 and 7 are almost exactly the same.

I think 5 has 4 more seats but, actually, 7 is the slightly nicer screen in my experience.

According to the official twitter feed today, screen 5 is the most convenient one - it's on the ground floor and easiest to get in and out of. The other two bigger screen are up a set of escalators inside the building.

Although the bar area is up those escalators, so we'd be using them anyway ;)

Screen 5 is actually the largest of the three. But Screen 6 (the smallest one) starts first.

Will each screen have the same freebies? One could assume that Arrow screen would get first dibs on some sweet Arrow dvds.

It was mentioned somewhere (can't find it now) that the sponsor of each *may* want to do something in "their" screen, so there may be some differences. However, as freebies have only ever been a limited bonus I hope it won't cause too much consternation if there are different things happening in the different auditoria.

Wish people didn't have to rely on twitter.


Still have no idea which screen to book. Waiting for more info still.
Thanks for the ride, sir.

I wouldn't think there'll be too much different between screens... maybe the schedule will dictate things for some people... find a screen where you can miss a few early or late films and get some extra sleep.

i go to this vue quite a lot. screens 5 and 7 are great - proper big auditoriums (though not as big as leicester sq odeon or empire 1 RIP). screen 6 is a bit smaller, but again, not that bad.

there really isn't much difference in size between 5 and 7
