    Mary Poppins returns. Is that where you take broken umbrellas to?

    I noticed the old cinema has brought the tickets down to £5. I like their style...

    Went in to the Odeon cinema for the first time yesterday, walked straight in to screen 3 with no one checking my ticket. If people cotton on to the fact you can just wander in and sit down without paying then the cinema is doomed.

    I must admit, no one checked our tickets either, thought it was strange at the time.

    Beware the inbuilt ticket smart chip that nullifies the trap door above the piranha filled tank. :heyhey:

    I had mine checked both times I went. *shrug* might just have been low staffed.

    I had my ticket checked and they will know which seats they have sold as you are allocated / choose the seat as part of the purchase.

    If they don't check tickets then you could just walk in to a screen, pick a vacant seat and if someone comes to your seat, admit you must be sitting in their seat and move to another vacant one. The staff don't check to see if you are sitting in the allocated seat when you are in the screen, or that you even have a ticket.
