    A while back I remember a fair few people expresing some interest in VICFF getting together to watch Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers. Here is a thread so that we can set about organising it. :D

    There are two main options available:

    1. See if there are any places left in the Multiverse screening, or;

    2. Organise our own time and place and see it when we decide.


    Comments?

    This meet I will definately be coming to :D

    Multiverse is always a good option, since you dont have to organise everything... but making our own one means it will just be us VicFFers.

    Whichever suits everyone, I'll be happy to attend.

    I'm going to the Multiverse screening (about to book the tickets) with a few friends so I'll see you there! Go to that one, in other words.

    OK, that sounds very decent indeed :D

    I think we should go for that... saves us the trouble of orgainising the time and everything :p

    BTW, do we have to book anything?

    GO to www.multiverse.org.au and FOLLOW THE LINKS! And yes, you need to give multiverse an email in advance just to notify: tickets@multiverse.org.au

    Firm/appropriate.

    Well then, it would seem that Multiverse is the way to go.

    I'll just have to make sure I'm not given a work shift that will clash with it. ;)

    I dunno. I'm possibly working, and all my friendship group are going to see it at the Drive-In.

    We'll work it out, hopefully Multiverse won't book out for at least another few days so I can possibly convince our group to see TT on a later date, and then I can convince KFC that I don't want to work a public holiday, then maybe I'll go again, and grace Derek Screen and all his happy lil' chums once more.

    Remembers interviewing the Phantom Dags at the AOTC Multiverse screening, who bragged about having already seen AOTC 3 times that day, prattling on about how cool Star Destroyers were...ah, the insanity, randomness, and Mandalore feel to that occasion...

    Ah, well thats work sorted out, so I can come to that too.

    Now, who IS coming? I ask as It would be best if we ordered tickets soonish. :)

    Why are people so mean to your little laifir? Why do you all have to go see TTT in bloody melbourne while she's stuck in a bloody hole called Bendigo?!
    :_| I wanna come! Can't you all magically make Bendigo, say, five minute away from you, instead of two hours and a friggin $50 train ticket?
    Anyhow, have fun all of you. I'll be there in spirit at least. :)

    I can't speak definitely for her, but I think we probably scared her away. :p

    Okay, it's two weeks until the event is happening. Now, down to business. ;)

    Two issues must be addressed:

    1). Booking/Payment
    Will this be organised such that each person who is going organises their own tickets and we all meet there on the night
    OR
    One person books and pays for the tickets, and is repayed by those who come on the night. (In which case the number of tickets to book will be needed)

    and secondly

    2). Attendance
    Who is actually going to come to this screening at Chadstone. Just so that any booking numbers can be finalised, make a post along the lines of:
    I WILL BE COMING
    or
    I WILL NOT BE COMING

    I have learnt from past experience that this is the way to ensure the attendance of someone. (see LVFFs rantings for more info)

    Hopefully we will then be able to get this happening and book the tickets before they sell out. :D
    I thank you for your attention. ;)

    I AM GOING, I HAVE ALREADY ORDERED TICKETS AND THEY SHOULD BE ARRIVING IN THE MAIL SOON

    ;)

    Edit: I'll put it in red for good measure.

    Firstly, to make this clear:

    I AM GOING


    Next, for the people that have not booked their tickets, like myself, I think we should get one person to book them so that we would be seated next to each other, not all around the cinema.

    Anyone else got something to add?

    Just something I remembered about Hoyts: AFAIK, they don't do allocated seating. You can book the tickets ahead, but in terms of where you sit, it's first come first serve once you arrive at the cinema itself. That's how it was with AOTC. As long as it's not booked out, I don't think it matters when you book.

    So then, the current situation appears to be:

    Will be attending
    Me
    JMD
    PoT
    already booked
    JE already booked

    Will not be attending
    Those who live outside Melbourne
    LordVader


    Thus far unconfirmed
    The Gatherer
    HawkNC
    DarkJediTJ


    Now see, lordvader, that wasnt hard. Get them to answer with lots of mark up codes and you won't have anyone saying they might be coming. A definite sounding answer will be given. ;)

    Of those yet to book, I have no problem booking your ticket, as long as you pay me back.
    If you make me pay for an empty seat.... *waves fist threateningly*


    Oh, and If I forgot to add someone to the list, please, dont hesitate to complain about the crappy service. ;) :p

    I don't remember answering with markup codes. :p

    I'm still uncomfirmed, but I'm trying my hardest. My semi-significant other wants to go with me, and I don't know if she'd be too enthusiastic seeing it with you guys. She just doesn't get the Fan Force thing, she had enough trouble accepting the fact that I was going to meet Shara, Gath and brutus last weekend. :p

    I originally thought I would be able to go, however, I am now spending Christmas with my sisters boyfriend's family in Colac, so unfortunately, I cannot go.
