No firm details as yet, but a word to the wise.

If you're not a member of the BFI, this may be a good time to join as there may be a special SPACED event coming in the next few months and BFI members always get first dibs on tickets...

Just so you know.

You get two IMAX tickets a year, that practically covers the membership fee.

I love the IMAX.
CazBag
Cheers for the heads up Edgar!

For those of you with student cards, it's only 20 for a year. Bargain!
Zoe
And cheaper than two tickets to the IMAX.

Did I tell you about when I saw Su-papa-pu-papaman Returns at the IMAX? Ooh it was brilliant, I could have reached out and touched his super-face.
CazBag
Can't be bad!

The IMAX cinemas are very cool. I've never been to the London one, only the ones in Bristol and Bournemouth. I loved both of them!
widowspider
Very cool. Thanks for the info Edgar!

I always thought autopsy films were a rather strange choice of IMAX programming.

OK, I know have 20, and a couple more sweet wrappers.
I'm getting there........

I still don't quite understand this, I don't live in harmony with computors/any technology, so getting membership will prove to be more tricky than raising the $$$

I just might have to find some dosh from somewhere for this... I'm intrigueified.
Jon 79
Well, Spaced was originally recorded on film ... so maybe they've done some sort of blow up to 70mm, to show the series on the big screen.

... That'd be good.

What could beat that?
... ooh,... maybe the guys are going to do a live commentary, like they did with Fuzz at the PCC.


What else? ...
Maybe Edgar's got a contract with the NFT, & he's getting commission for every person he cajoles into joining.

Not going to ask for the obligatory youtube?

That's what I'm hoping for, I'm almost certain I can't make London for it. (Damn! as I know it's a one-off special to wrap up the series!!)

Well I live here and I'm likely to miss out on it myself so you shouldn't feel too bad.


If anyone does find themselves with a spare ticket...er...hi there!

I think it's London IMAX tickets only, which is why I didn't join up last year. The only thing of use to me as a northerner would be the Sight and Sound discount, but I can go to the uni library to read them anyway.

*sigh*
Zoe
But surely you can get them any time, which means you can just use them when you're in London (which most people are at least once over the course of a year).

Of course everyone should go to the IMAX every time they're in London as a matter of course.

The 3D is so f'ing good they have to give you a little talk at the start about feeling faint!

Why isn't everything in 3D? Why aren't all screens as big as the IMAX? Why don't I have my own IMAX in my house?

Seriously though, you must all go to London occasionally?

I manage 4 or 5 times a year from waaaay up here in Nottingham.
curtinparloe
In the past 4 years, I've been to London once, maybe twice. Before that I commuted there for two months (a ball-ache from Liverpool, I can tell you) about the time of the Attack of the Clones premiere, but there were always other things to do than go to the IMAX.

Besides, I can go to the IMAX in Manchester*, a mere 20 minutes away by train, and not have to worry about finding accommodation or cheap train/bus tickets. Or sooty nostrils...

It's academic anyway, 35 is no longer something I have.



* The end of Harry Potter 5 was pretty groovy in 3D, although the spurty wands were worrying.

There are dragons in London. And gays. And fancy furniture. And ladies of the night. It could initimate some and excite many.

I've always had a great time in London, whenever I've been. Even though I often feel lowly and bumpkinlike.
curtinparloe
I've had mixed experiences, some nice, some not so nice. The meeting of people I've only met online, I liked. The falling down the gap, I didn't like.

Well, it wouldn't be London without the odd bad experience. Falling down an escalater, getting mugged, having a fat man rub his genitals on the back of your leg in an act of sexual perversion.

London baby!

AMY XXX biggrin.gif

EDIT:
1) Get membership.
2) Get tickets for up-coming SPACED-Y THINGY.
3) Get someone to drive me (I really didn't think this through....).
Llama
20 for me, muhuahaa!

Does anyone know if BFI members can buy the advanced tickets for other people as well? Or can you only buy tickets for yourself?

Yeah me too! My Open Uni degree which is taking years and years to complete has it's perks ... you can get an NUS card for years and years too. It's saved me loads at the cinema and transport to London! laugh.gif

I'm guessing they may have a maximum order per transaction, but I'm guessing it's going to be more than one ticket, so yeah, I reckon we can order tickets for others too.

Hmm... may have to split the membership fee with The Lucy then. I did send them a message asking about it but they never replied.
Ghost_862
Student membership for me.

Now I must cease this frivolous spending.

Until the tickets go onsale.

But then I will stop for good!

Until The Times/BFI London Film Festival starts...

But then that's it.

Until the BBC Electric Proms. rolleyes.gif

It is no use! I am doomed to one day find myself subjected to Jay and Benjamin's harsh budgeting regime sad.gif My name is Charlie and I am a Spendaholic. But I shall hold my head high. It least it's tickets, as opposed to the regular shoes, coffee and sushi. Twunts.
