Mine seems to oscillate wildly. There are four screens allocated, one in XD Real D 3d and the rest in regular Real D 3d (apparently we're meant to care about whatever XD means); at present there are a few tickets left for a single non-XD screening, everything else is full. When I checked on Friday the XD had a few spare seats and the non-XDs were full.

EDIT: naturally I'd most rather see it in 2d, but that's not an option. They should reserve 3d for the usual teenage male superhero garbage that can't survive on any other merits.

My VUE in Halifax has sold out one screen and just opened up another.

Annoyingly it is too far away to get to.

For some reason, my local cinema is only showing it on one screen and it's sold out

The cinema here was the same except that when the one sold out they added a second. That then happened another two times to bring them up to four screens. Seems to have settled down now though.

Literally so tempted to book at the O2 before it's too late, but I'm not keen on going alone from the Excel. Damn you BBC! Damn you and your poor organisation!

Isn't that about a fifteen minute journey? Though I guess you'd need to switch from the DLR to the Jubilee. Or figure something out with buses...

Cable car has a direct route which takes about 15 to 20 minutes depending on queues. Would be nice taking a scenic view, for sure...

Screw it, I booked the tickets, normal screen at 19:30. Good to have a back-up in case I fail the BBC's bloodbath- I mean, reservation system.

Oh yes, it's just a short walk downwards from the Excel! (And I'm a sucker for viewing London at night. )

Thanks! Hopefully the organisers will make any sort of call/communication of any basic nature soon...

It looks like it goes quite high up from my quick Google Imaging I'll bet you can see my flat from it! I'm overseas at the minute but one day I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back.

... and that's why you'll be viewing it at a cinema rather than in your own home with your family? Hahahaha. Etc.

Just me and my girlfriend,a full HD 10 foot projected screen 7.1 surround,a chinese takeaway and a few beers, why waste 26 plus travelling to sit next to strangers who may well be on twitter tweeting away throughout.

no thanks, nothing against anyone going, hope you all enjoy it.

For some absurd reason, my cinema isn't adding extra screens. I shall have to watch it in the peace and quiet of my home

Pity me; I'm seeing it with Americans. My experiences so far have suggested that they will cheer and clap and possibly even give the film a standing ovation. Yet they're always perfectly calm at the theatre.

Once we've all seen it we should reconvene and compare quantity of dialogue missed due to society.

Why are the screenings at 7.30pm? Surely it will be on earlier than that. I dont think an episode of DW has ever started as late as 7.30. Perhaps it will be adjusted when the confirmation of the screening time is announced. How are the BBC going to schedule this around Scrictly Come Dancing and X factor? Sure this has been discussed already. Just wondered what the general opinion is.

I know a lot of cinemas have added extra screens, so it's kind of hard to tell how many, if any, of the original allocation are left at this point.

Why are the screenings at 7.30pm?
The times are still to be confirmed, 7:30pm is a placeholder. It says it quite clearly when you buy tickets.
