Gah! We've got our office Christmas party that evening... Hmm, maybe there will be a midnight showing somewhere. Who needs sleep, anyway?

An office party on the release day of ROTK?! What on earth were they thinking! btw - the website seems to have removed those booking slots.

Speaking of the Odeon, they currently have a competition running: ( Basically, if you book tickets to see the film before midnight tomorrow, you get entered into a draw to win 2 tickets to the European premiere in Germany next week. I'm not sure whether they then refund your original ticket price, or whether they assume that you won't mind watching the film twice :) More seriously, I'm not quite clear on whether you have to have received the email, or whether any online booking will suffice. There's also a "no purchase necessary" postcard option, but you'd best be quick if you want to do that, since you'll need to post it today.

ok. so odeon are now taking bookings. Warners are missing a real trick if they don't get their bookings out soon. Now do i want to enter the draw or wait for the better cinema... decisions decisions NB - to use the online bookings it's under THE Lord of the Rings (others are under different things... not exactly a lot of consistancy going on).

Aha - Warner are now taking bookings - they've even put a full page advert on their homepage :) (

One interesting thing they mention: "Please be advised that due to the length of this film there will be a 15 minute break during each showing for your comfort. Running time of film: 3hrs & 20 mins. Programme will run for 3 hrs & 55 mins (including intermission)." I wonder whether other cinemas are doing this? I can understand why they'd do it (since I was hopping for the loo by the end of the previous two films), but I hope the film has a convenient breaking point...

Anyway, showings in Fulham on Wednesday 17th are at 11:00, 12:00, 19:30, 20:30. Sadly all too early for me :(
