Strange. The post was taken from here with "thanks to M&M from FMUK" but that sentence
"We are looking for male and female guests, over 25, who don't mind watching subtitled films." was added. Maybe rummy, who seems to be on this forum too, can explain where this comes from? At the end of the day, it doesn't matter though because no one can discriminate against you if you just put a code into SFF, it says nothing on the printout so I don't think the good folks at the Vue West End will age check anyone!

Our feedback form is also blank and yes, we also wanted to sing the film's praises. My husband, daughter and I really liked this film. I did think some of the music was too loud but thought the various stories were well done and engaging. And all the actors were marvellous.

Glad to say hello to Beate (always easy to find her as she takes her place in the back row!) and wish her a happy holiday in Sussex. May the sun shine!

Haven't looked yet, will in a minute.

They put us in one of their smallest screens in the basement, where you can hear the noise from the films above you. It filled up steadily until it was almost full. It was nice to see ejwrank again!

I thought this was a lovely film, 5 scenes in the life of a family, each one concentrating on one of them but showing the progress of the others too. Believable family life, it was interesting to see the kids grow up, especially the second son looked miles better at the end than when he was "Magic Fingers"!
The only thing I was a bit annoyed about was that the subtitles were in white and often enough you had a very bright background so couldn't read the subtitles!

8/10

hmm are these surveymonkey things gonna be commonplace now as there very similar to the standard sff questions but no room to add any comments? guess this way they dont have to sift through any complaints about the cinema or their incompetence!
