    So I went to book my ticket and I was excited so but I was shocked when I went on Odeon.co.uk to find out...

    They weren't showing Tranformers in my area. Not the 2D, 3D or IMAX 3D version. Impossible! They've shown the last 2. So I call them and lo and behold "Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon IMAX 3D" Thank God, I would have died if I couldn't watch this film. The cinema only listed Central London. UK people beware!

    im going to one in Greenwich imax 3d on the 28th at 9pm :) 

    had so much trouble and ended up emailing and complaining to them! Waited all day for them to resolve the website issue constantly refreshing the page but in the end I just phoned up...

    if people are having with odeon atm...phone up and say "speak to an operator" it will get you through a staff member rather than being charged for an automated phone service that just drags on to cop you out...hope that helps :)  im new lol

    OK. I went to book online for Greenwich and ODEON didn't have it listed at all. The closest was in Central London so I booked over the phone. Who knew there were so many people near me :)  Tuesday at 9pm. I'm going to be first in line so HA!

    I shall be going to the Southampton IMAX.

    I've never been to one before so I'm hoping it's gonna be good. I tried to go once before to see Tron legacy but when I got there they told me that they had a powercut in the morning and that the IMAX screen was broken.

    I think I'll ring and check before I go this time.

    Story time:

    I ordered tickets for me and 6 other people for the midnight IMAX 3D showing, the day they went online. Two days after that, two more friends of mine said that they wanted to go with us and I said that I'd check and see if they still had tickets left. I went online and the listing for IMAX 3D wasn't there and I just thought that they did sell out. But after hearing the stuff on here about theaters and Cars 2, I got the feeling to call.

    I talked to the manager and he said that Paramount never sent them the film for IMAX 3D, so they cancelled it... and I didn't find this out until I had to call. So here I have $120 worth of tickets purchased for a showing that didn't exist. :banghead: 

    Good news is... the manager said that they would get us into the 9:00 RealD showing for free and they'd refund the tickets. :) 

    Bad news is... it's not IMAX. :( 

    They said they might get IMAX 3D later, but that means I have to drive through downtown Louisville to a theater that's an hour away. I might go back, but idk.

    Ouch. I saw ROTF in IMAX and it was quite good (the ratio is different so the sides aren't cut off). I won't go into much detail. Who knows, on Tuesday I can meet fellow board members without knowing haha.
