Hello all,

Sorry for the radio silence on this. We haven't forgotten you, but there are a few complicating factors this year (some big event in east London this summer?) and we're not in a position to announce anything. As and when that changes, you will know at once.

Speaking for myself, if you go ahead with your commemorative Ticket Freak Out, I'm happy to drop by and post KEEP CALM every 15 minutes, just for the sake of authenticity.

Thanks for the update Helen. I haven't been on here in yonks and was so worried I had missed something on this. Fingers crossed something can be arranged. Otherwise I would miss my annual trip to our nation's capital for the bestest event ever.

Awwh, damn, not going to be around on Friday, going to be up in London to see some stuff at SFL.

Could someone fill in for me please? It's an easy job, all you need to do is whinge about the following (more than once if possible)

1. R3 error
2. SEE Tickets
3. One timetable not matching another
4. SEE Tickets
5. Films being in slots shorter than their running time.
6. SEE Tickets

Thanks.

P.S. If I get time, I'll go and stand outside the O2 Ticket Office for an hour

Still not convinced that isn't a prank pulled by the Friday Night Project

Thanks for the update.

I'm all booked and sorted with absolutely no issues whatsoever. Dunno what you all moan about to be quite honest. The ticket line was a genuine pleasurable experience.

We'll all be fine, everybody calm down! And besides, with my super special unicorn membership, I booked my tickets six months ago...

Did anyone go down to the BFI to queue? That'd really confuse them!

I'm on hold. In ten minutes I'll be disconnected. Then I'll be on hold again.

At least it's a predictable circle of events.

Oh my God, the ticket panic was THIS Friday? Why was this not on the website or Twitter! It's gone 22:00 and I haven't even got my R3 yet!?! What if I ring up now and they don't put me on hold?! THIS IS EVEN MORE STRESSFUL THAN THE REAL THING!!!

[Disclaimer: this is in no way more stressful than the real thing.]

I loving the stress free ticket freak out......

Having to queue mega early to get a good seat at the 02 the other week for the Avengers bought back a lot of memories of Big Screen but at least they didnt make us queue outside this time..

You are all losers as I got my tickets, easy peasy. Why don't you all grow up! And then some thinly veiled insult at OddDaze.


That was my favourite part of the ticket panic.

Did my suggestion get picked up? Is it true? Monkey baseball? only with swords as bats and throwing stars as balls?

Alas, no.
Nor is there rollerball or BASEketball (Olympic level psych outs would be awesome)

We have managed to get tickets that involve
1 hour sumo wrestling (aka travelling through over packed tube trains to the venue)
a little bit of sight-seeing before
2+ hours for a 200m trundle (aka queing to get into the venue and through the no-doubt endless security measures)
2 hours of watching ladies basketball semi-finals
Then trying to get out of London from 5pm on a Tuesday evening (much fun and japes to be had).

We also tried to get tickets for the handball quarter finals, but failed for that.
