When buying tickets online tomorrow the info states to not have multiple windows open - does this refer to ticket buying only or can you have one window for the ticket queue and a second window to do other stuff online? Or will the latter mess up your place in the queue?

Of course you can, but just one window to the ticket link at a time. We can have up to 70 people on the ticket pages at any one time before the queuing page kicks in. Also, be aware if you take longer than 15 minutes to buy your tickets, you will be bumped off the system and you will have to start again.

Thanks for the confirmation & info! I'm a technological dinosaur so I just wanted to be sure!

No tears, please. It's a waste of good suffering.

So I can already join the queue but can't select tickets. Should I keep the web page open or do I need to rejoin the queue at 12?

I'd stay in the queue unless your time waiting ends before the 12pm opening...

Yeah, that is strange. Just clicked on the link myself to have a look and it's put me in a queue as well. I order tickets for Liverpool games every year and normally if you go on there too early it tells you as much and that you'll have to try again at the proper time. So don't know what's happening here. I'm guessing it won't let anyone have tickets until midday at the earliest. As to whether we're actually in a queue (even a sleepy one), I've no idea. But I think I'll hold on and wait now just in case.

That slowly growing orange bar is quite hypnotic...

Actually the queue time gives you a moment to work out just what screen you want and which Discovery films to target.
I'm all sorted in my head now, and looking for hotel possibilities in another window ... damn you quality late-night films! *shakes fist*

Weird though ...
Can't get used to "queuing" for a weekend pass without being asked for spare change or drunk people/tourists asking you what you're up to ...

I'm looking at that bar and starting to feel quite sleepy. Knowing my luck I'll doze off before it gets to the end and I'll miss my turn! And once I've done this queue it's straight off to Wembley Stadium to queue up outside so I can grab a decent spot for AC/DC later this evening!
