I went on as soon as I got the alert and there was one ticket left for Shaftsbury ave!! Wow...it's like scarecrows hovering over a dead carcass.... Thats the problem isn't it...the more members we get, the harder it is for the older members to get tickets!!!

Especially when the code gets copied to MSE very quickly! I checked the London locations and there was nothing left - very happy I have tickets for next week already!

Yeah don't get me wrong, I got 1 ticket but my god they are going quick these days....esp the ones for totalfilm, when everyone is just sitting around on a friday waiting for a code..
Sometimes, don't people think, hey I am checking for a code all the time online, I might as well concentrate on my job/a job and use that time to actually earn some money and p*y for some tickets.....
It's not really "free", if you're spending so much time checking for it...

In the case of Total Film screenings, the code is e-mailed in their newsletter to all sorts of people - not just FMUKers, and it will quickly appear on lots of other websites.
Having said that , the tickets in general are going very fast these days, it must be partly because we have more members but maybe also because the codes we find are quickly appearing on MSE etc.

But also the total film code will come out again over the next two weeks won't it? so it's only a third or a quarter of the tickets released at the moment. I'm glad I got the sky one, I was only a few mins late and even the sheffield tickets on SFF had all gone.

Yes I don't think SFF ever release all of their tickets in one go, so there will be more chances for this one.

Seems like SKY has made more tickets for the 1st March screening available!!!, Romford, Croydon and Bromley are all in London i think and they still have tickets!!! (just booked myself to romford VUE)

Don't know if i should post to the Free Films board, as not many people see this

Only Croydon really is I think. Bromley is in Kent if I am not mistaken and Romford is in Essex. Are you sure these are new tickets? Because tickets get cancelled all the time it might just be a few tickets still available.
