UK Premiere Can't Post

Hi everyone!

I've been lurking around the site for a while now but figured it was time to join since I have some thing awesome to post about.

I bought myself a ticket to the UK premiere of The Hobbit and I should be able to get three more if any of you are interested.

I realise I'm a newbie so I'm not expecting any replies but since none of my (heathen) friends want to go I'd see if anyone on here wants to go along!

Technically... [In reply to] Can't Post

...it's this year's Royal Film Performance which is organised by the Cinema & Television Benevolent Fund so if you're a member of that you get access to buy tickets.

They're a bit pricey but for me it's worth every penny!

Premiers in London are usually in Leicester Square [In reply to] Can't Post

Harry Potter was special and got Trafalgar Square for the big red carpet, that lead all the way to Leicester Square.

I went last year. It was good, but would have been more enjoyable if it didn't rain (I was just one of the screaming fans, not a ticket holder.)

It's all in Leicester Square [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not sure if the tickets will go on sale to the public or not, this is all new to me.

It is a lot of money but the CTBF is a charity so the money is going to a good cause and if you think about what film premieres are usually like it'll likely be pretty spectacular.

reception [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't have a ticket to the reception... yet. seems quite a lot of money for something that is only an hour and fifteen minutes. Although I am still tempted. Any information on if anyone interesting is going to be there? I'm more than happy to get a group of us meeting up though!

I reckon just the atmosphere will be amazing if nothing else.

And certainly a once in a lifetime experience! [In reply to] Can't Post

Please do a write-up of the reception and the movie afterwards, so that we can enjoy it vicariously? Smile

Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

By the time they have seen the movie, [In reply to] Can't Post

I have not only seen the movie myself... I have also went home, gone to sleep, wake up, and eat breakfast, played Guild Wars 2 for several hours and been eating dinner! I find that thought very pleasing Wink

Apologies for resurrecting an ancient thread [In reply to] Can't Post

For the others going to the reception/premiere I just spoke to someone at the CTBF and she said it's fine to take a camera along to get some photos, just not in the screening itself obviously.

I didn't ask about autographs but I think it'll be easy to judge on the night whether it'll be appropriate or not.
