    I see there's another code for The Disaster Artist on the code thread.
    Just saw this and it was very enjoyable so I'd recommend it.
    Bit confused as to why they're still offering free previews as it's on release already , but let's not look a gift horse in the mouth... At least SFF seems to be picking up again

    It hasn't been released yet. Cineworld showed it as an Unlimited preview last night and SFF also showed it on preview.

    We are very delighted to have a few tickets to a preview of Stronger on 5 December at various locations before it opens nationwide on 8 December.

    Based on the true story from the New York Times best seller, Jake Gyllenhaal stars as the working-class Boston man whose iconic photo from the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing captured the hearts of the world. Stronger is the deeply personal account of the heroic journey that came after that photo – defining a man’s inner courage, a community’s pride, a family’s bond and an unexpectedly tenacious love.

    For more information and to download tickets:

    Social Networks: Please do talk about what you have seen BUT not about SFF or how you got your tickets.

    Hi Everybody

    It has been bought to my attention by a member that SFF has recently changed the way in which you can see what cinemas are available and whether they have tickets or not when you enter a code.

    I have been made aware that members could see a new post on the codes board with new venues for an already posted code justified but as many of you know, we have debated this often over the years and it was always decided that new codes only should go on the codes only board and not updates of 'new venues' or 'available now' or 'tickets at' posts.

    If you spot new venues for a previously posted code, then could we post them on here as usual.

    Thanks Guys

    p.s Again, as always, its your thread so if the majority agrees that it should be changed and that such posts would be ok then please post on here so we can get a general idea if members views have changed.

    Times +
    Question for any Times + members here - If you apply for tickets for their preview screenings , do you usually get them ? Are they always over subscribed , or are there generally enough to meet demand ?
    Do you need to grab them at 6 am to have any chance ?
    Asking because they have a few subscription offers at the moment , wouldn't normally bother but they seem to have a lot of film screenings

    You certainly have to be quick applying for the tickets. It really depends whether you have cinemas in various chains near you as in recent months the showings have not been near us whereas I used to go at least 1 time each month.
    Although I have never been affected my over booking, they do issue too many tickets so if you want a good seat you need to be at the cinema early. Members on Times+ often complain about no viewings in their area & over booking.


    Good lick if you decide to subscribe.

    Get there early but I have never had a problem in Leicester. Cinema is usually 3/4 full at best.

    I have no opinion either way, but you can set up an email subscription (instant, daily, weekly) on both threads.
