    I'm not sure I'm going to make it tonight :( Have got the lurgi and stayed in bed until lunchtime to try to fix myself but just getting worse. Does anyone want to buy my ticket for a reduced price? If I cant sell it I may still go if feel up to it. Gutted.

    If anyone doesn't get the email, let me know. Plan is to meet at THE CAMEL pub on Globe street first from 5.30/5.45. Thanks...

    November 24, 2012

  • Carolyn

    Hi guys, will email with my number and designated meeting spot etc early next week. Do you all want to meet at a pub first at say 5.30 and head down together? I've had some tips from a friend who's been, will add them to the email...

    November 17, 2012

    • Ruth

      Hi Carolyn, just wondered if you'd emailed yet?

      November 22, 2012

    • Carolyn

      Email sent now!

      November 24, 2012

  • Pete H.

    How are people planning to carry things around - keys, phone, cash etc - without pockets / bag if following instructions to the letter?

    November 20, 2012

    • Carolyn

      No clue yet! Will ask my friend who has been and put it in my email with my number etc.

      November 20, 2012

    • Pete H.

      Kewl. Thanks. I was thinking of one of those travel pouch things but I've already spent a fortune on long-johns and vest (OK, £5)

    Hi everyone. I've been away last week so thats why been a bit quiet. I think meeting at half 5 before is a really good idea. I have bought a really oversized mans suit from ebay (C&A if anyone is interested!). Partly so oversized because I didn't appreciate the difference in leg length between womens and mens trousers. Am bit undecided whether to actually wear it as I do look ridiculous in it. Also have some winter woolly long johns and white thermal top which also are not the most flattering outfits but guess its all in the spirit of it. Am also going to take a small bag that can go across my body as whatever Secret cinema say there is no way I can not either take a bag or put things in pockets if travelling by myself up to London! Am looking to forward to it now - sounds like should be a really different kind of night out.

  • Glenn

    hope everyone makes it through the event in one piece - I'm somehow feeling your collective stress through the internet ;)

    November 15, 2012

    • Carolyn

      It will be fine, we're not stressed, just in planning mode! This is a new one for all of us, and involves way more pre-event arranging than anything else the group has done so far... I for one am really looking forward to seeing what it's all about!

  • Neoma

    Still trying to guess the film!

    November 15, 2012

  • Neoma

    Thankfully I have a black suit (sort of) so am just going to wear that, with a t-shirt and thermals! And warm comfy shoes!
    The hotel looks really good!

    November 15, 2012

  • Carolyn

    What is everyone wearing? It's so hard for us girls :( I can't believe they want us to dress like men!!!

    November 14, 2012

    • Carolyn

      Also, just thought I'd say, some of the reviews I posted have crowd pics, I'm going to have a proper look later to see what the girls are wearing and maybe get some inspiration...

      November 15, 2012

    • mez

      I've heard you have to strip down to the longjohns or equivalent...

      November 15, 2012

  • mez

    I've RSVP'd yes and below in a previous message I've stated I've got a ticket. But I've received little information even though I registered on some website so I have no idea where to be at what time. Can anyone help?

    November 14, 2012

    • Neoma

      Hi Merryn, I was just going to say the same as Carolyn. See if you have any emails from the State of Oakhampton. You should have recieved one initially asking you to confirm your identity, then you get another email summonsing you to court. If you havent got anything, perhaps try on secret cinema fb page?

      November 14, 2012

    • Carolyn

      Merryn let us know if you have any problems and can't get the 6.30pm slot - i've found out that we are actually being taken on a bus to a separate venue after the first venue so we'll have to make plans to meet you there if you can't get the same courtroom slot as we have.

      November 15, 2012

  • Carolyn

    And another: http://www.wnol.info/secret-cinema-state-of-oak-hampton-guidlines/

    All very positive so far! I like the sound of all the hidden rooms and bars and people...

    November 14, 2012

    • Neoma

      Very exciting! :)

      November 14, 2012

  • Jon

    Same here

    October 28, 2012

    • Jon

      Yes I did. I am also Neoma's plus 1 so you can discount 1 attendee.

      November 14, 2012

    • Carolyn

      No probs, I've edited for you guys!

      November 14, 2012

  • Neoma

    Sorry, I meant to remove my plus 1, that's Jon! :)

    November 14, 2012

  • Carolyn

    I'm also getting tough/organised and un-RSVPing those who have RSVP'd yes but disappeared! The final list of attendees looks like me, Paggy, Pete, Neoma + 1, Ruth and Jon. Anyone who I have have un RSVp'd who has a ticket but just hasn't replied to any of my messages or comments for some reason, let me know.

    November 13, 2012

    • Carolyn

      oops, and merryn too!

      November 13, 2012

  • Carolyn

    Closed this to RSVPs as all tix are now sold out for this showing.

    November 12, 2012

  • Neoma

    Are tix sold out now?

    November 8, 2012

    • Neoma

      They are all sold out for our evening now. I just checked. :(

      November 8, 2012

    • Neoma

      I have tickets tho, just checking for other people!

      November 8, 2012

  • Carolyn

    Does everyone who has RSVP'd yes have a ticket now?

    November 7, 2012

  • Paggy

    November 6, 2012

  • Neoma

    I've only been asked to verify my ID?

    October 27, 2012

    • Neoma

      Got it, I'm at 6:30 as well! :)

      October 28, 2012

    • Paggy

      ok, i'm at 6:30 also!

      October 28, 2012

  • Paggy

    I got an email to verify my identity, which I did, but the 2nd email (with my "returned identity") has dead links. Anyone else having these problems?

    October 28, 2012

    • Ruth

      I did. Some people have posted links on the secret cinema facebook page so if you have a search on there for them it should work. Thats how I got it to work.

      October 28, 2012

  • Ruth

    Has everyone been summonsed to court? Am wondering what time to select?

    October 27, 2012

  • Neoma

    I get the emails because I signed up on their website. Have you done that?
    I'm also following Secret Cinema on fb, they posted a new picture & quote online today. V excited! :)

    October 25, 2012

  • Carolyn

    I want some more emails from Secret Cinema, I thought they'd be setting the scene by now :(

    October 9, 2012

    • Neoma

      I know, me too. I hate being kept in suspense. They've sent emails out about future cinema...aarghh!

      October 9, 2012

    • Paggy

      I haven't been getting emails! Should I worry that I don't have a ticket?

      October 9, 2012

  • mez

    I've got my ticket !!

    1 · September 30, 2012

  • Carolyn

    I think I worked out what the film is already, damn it!

    September 29, 2012

    • Pete H.

      Shhh. Tell no one

      September 29, 2012

    • Neoma

      Ha ha ha...but I need to know!! The suspense is killing me...

      September 29, 2012

    Looking for tickets - is it the 6pm show as Meetup site says 7pm.

    September 28, 2012

    • Neoma

      My tickets say 6pm!!

      September 28, 2012

  • Carolyn

    Glad that some people have tix! Looks like there are 5 of us so far...come on everyone else!

    September 28, 2012

  • Paggy

    After reading all the reviews, I'm too curious to pass this up! Ticket purchased! :)

    1 · September 28, 2012

  • Neoma

    Wow, I'm sure there were tix this morning...

    September 26, 2012

    • Carolyn

      I just got mine! Hooray!

      September 28, 2012

    • Neoma

      Two tickets bought for the 25th pm! Can't wait! :)

    September 28, 2012

  • Carolyn

    I just bought one for 25th PM.

    September 28, 2012

  • Pete H.

    As Neoma mentioned, a new tranche of tickets has been released. Link is:

    http://www.secretcinema.org/tickets.html

    ... I just bought one for the evening showing on 25 November.

    Can whoever else is going now do the same, quickly...

    September 28, 2012

  • Ruth

    Er, looks like its completely sold out.

    September 26, 2012

  • Naomi

    The email I got from them said The Secret Cinema presents The Third Man - is this the film they're doing then?

    September 26, 2012

    • Amy

      That film was last year...the clue is in the name..it's a secret ;)

      September 26, 2012

  • Pete H.

    I think the feedback is really useful - it's allowed me to 'set my expectations'. I've never done one of these, and it's on my to-do list, so I'm definitely going, aware that due to the nature of the event it can't be anything other than pot luck!

    September 26, 2012

    • Amy

      It's one of the best, and the worst, events I've been to in London, but I think the first one is always amazing...and always always worth the money..

      September 26, 2012

  • Neoma

    I'm the same, I'm hoping it's going to be an amazing experience but as Eden said, it is luck of the draw. But I've been wanting to go for ages, so am going to go and hope for the best, then at least I can say I've been! :)

    September 26, 2012

  • Glenn

    As much as I want to go; looking at past events (some incredible, some arguably mediocre at best); then thinking about the queues, price of a popcorn kernel etc. it just seems like it may not be as much fun as it should be. Hope I'm wrong & that the people who go have an incredible time. The concept is amazing ! Maybe we should put on a similar event (with a twist) ourselves in the near future...for people in this group, friends, people we know from other groups who might be interested. If anyone would like this to happen I'm more than happy to make a start on seeing what's possible. Already have one idea. Aim will be for it to be non-cost-prohibitive, mysterious & really in the spirit of Alternative Nightlife. Anyone feel like getting involved ? - do say hi any time ;)

    September 26, 2012

  • mirko

    Too expensive, given the fact you do not know the movie/theme chosen until you get there... What if it is a movie I hate? Sorry, I opt out this time.

    September 26, 2012

  • Neoma

    Hiya, Hubby and I are in. We've done Future cinema which was amazing, but not secret yet.
    We're good for the 25th, if that's the most popular date?

    September 25, 2012

    a little exspensive and thats without the popcorn...how much will that cost..?

    September 25, 2012

    • Jamina W.

      Last time I went popcorn was £3 a bag. We ended up spending another £25 between two for a couple of drinks and some snacks. The queues weren't bad though, which is something!

      September 25, 2012

      so far .. we have, the pop corn is exspensive, along with the food, which from previous meetings has long queues aswell as being pricey,...plus i have no idear where the venue is? .. this is coming across a little like the 'dragon s den.'..

      September 25, 2012

  • Carolyn

    Hi guys, can we start discussing dates? I'm proposing either 11/18/25 Nov or 2nd Dec. Most popular date wins! Also, just to note, tickets for this are now a whopping £43.50. Thought I'd flag as it may be a factor in deciding whether to come or not...it's a bit of a killer, but I've never been so I'm still planning to give it a shot!

    September 24, 2012

    • Ruth

      Hi, I really liked the idea of doing this but the ticket price was a bit too steep for the friends I asked. So I'd love to come along. Can do 25th Nov or 2nd Dec or 11th Nov at a pinch.

      September 24, 2012

    • Carolyn

      It's looking like 25th so far then, as it's the only one the 5 of us can do. I'll wait a couple of days so a few more people get the chance to rsvp, but I'd like to get my ticket on Friday.

      September 24, 2012

  • Naomi

    I'd love to go, but I can't do Sundays.

    September 24, 2012

  • Glenn

    http://www.secretcinema.org/

    If you click the tickets section; there's a write-up that alludes to why the ticket prices are quite high. Never been either so feel like giving it a shot as well.

    Hi Carolyn - can you post a link where I can read up more? It will enable me to decide if it''s worth the price. I've been meaning to do a 'secret cinema' event, but the one I'm aware of may be different to this. Cheers, Pete

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
