Watch "The Book Thief"

This film has caught my attention from the earliest trailers. It will be showing at ODEON cinemas nationwide on 24/02/14, before its full nationwide release on 26/02/14.

Adapted from Markus Zusak's acclaimed novel, 'The Book Thief' tells the tale of a young book-loving German girl whose life is utterly changed as World War II unfolds.

Check http://www.metacritic.com/movie/the-book-thief for a collation of all the reviews to date (mostly US, it would seem) and the user reviews are positive.

Book tickets now and be the first to see 'The Book Thief' - http://www.odeon.co.uk/films/the_book_thief/14871/#showtimes for advance tickets.

Optionally, meet for a quick drink or bite to eat beforehand?

    Sorry have to cancel now :(

  • Dave V

    Alison - if I'm not there in time, buy a ticket rather than wait for me. Give me a call if it is getting tight on[masked]

    February 24, 2014

  • Harry

    I need to send my apologies for this evening - I'd have loved to be there but just have too many difficulties with it after my accident with my foot :-(
    I hope you all have a fab time!

    February 24, 2014

    • Dave V

      No apology needed. I always tell people exercise is dangerous!

      February 24, 2014

  • Dave V

    I may run late getting there, depending on the traffic from Newbury. The table should still be booked in my name for 7 so I will join you there as and when.

    February 24, 2014

  • Jane

    Hi, Just booked the film, is it too late to join you for food?

    February 24, 2014

    • Dave V

      Not at all. See you there, 7 ish. Table for 8/9 in the name of Venman

      February 24, 2014

  • Barrie W.

    Sorry but I'm not able to come now.

    February 24, 2014

  • Louisa

    Hi folks, is anyone else buying their ticket when they get to the cinema? I was going to buy mine in advance but despite being a reasonably independent lady, don't really want to end up sitting on my own like Norman Nomates!

    February 24, 2014

    • Louisa

      Lovely jubbly, I have H4. If I don't manage to meet you beforehand I'll see you inside.

      February 24, 2014

    • Dave V

      Shame I can't get in earlier to put towels on the seats, like Germans...

      February 24, 2014

  • Rachel T.

    Sorry folks, but I shan't be able to join you tonight after all! But from what I've seen of the trailer over the weekend, you're in for a treat! Enjoy...

    February 24, 2014

  • Jane

    Hi - Would like to join you for a quick bite if not too late. There is a chance that I will have to work late and therefore not be able to come. I will try to let you know. Please do not wait. Thanks Jane

    February 23, 2014

    • Dave V

      Jane - not a problem, if you can make it great. If not - looks like you're having a massive overpriced hotdog for tea :)

      February 23, 2014

  • Dave V

    Looks like a few more will be joining us - triffic.

    So far myself, Mark T, Elsa, Sue, Rachel, Paula, Alison and Janice are planning to meet at 7pm in the Brewhouse (just next door to the cinema) for some food. Any other takers - I'll need to change the reservation if so.

    February 23, 2014

  • Harry

    Me again
    Earlier this week I managed to rupture my Achilles tendon whilst dancing (ouch) so I'm not sure if I'll be able to manage to get there logistically. I'm now on double crutches for three months and unable to drive :-((

    February 14, 2014

    • Rachel T.

      If Harry still lives in Bradford on Avon (profile synopsis?) then I could possibly give you both(?) a lift, as I live there too (nr Leigh Park Hotel on Bath side).....

      February 17, 2014

    • Dave V

      Harry - still time to take up the offer of a lift, if you're still planning on coming.

      February 21, 2014

  • Dave V

    I have booked a table for 8 people for 7pm in the name of Venman.

    So far I have myself, Paula, Alison, Sue, Rachel, Janice and Elsa for food (albeit one or two may be a touche late). If you also would like to eat prior to the film please let me know and I will amend the booking.

    February 19, 2014

    • Mark T

      Count me in for food please Dave

      February 19, 2014

    • Dave V

      Done.

      February 19, 2014

  • Paula L

    Is it too late to say yes to food?

    February 19, 2014

    • Dave V

      It will only be too late at about 7:30 on Monday. I'll add one...

      1 · February 19, 2014

  • Dave V

    I'm planning to be in Bath for 7pm latest, preferably earlier. How about meeting at 7pm onwards at The Brew House, 30 seconds walk from the cinema (come out of the cinema, turn left, if you miss the pub you've walked for a minute).

    I've had a drink there before and the food looks ok - check http://thebathbrewhouse.com for more info.

    February 17, 2014

    • Dave V

      Coming for good ? :) I know what you mean. See you then.

      February 19, 2014

    • Alison

      Oops. That's predictive text for you!

      February 19, 2014

  • Sue

    Yes, count me in for food please! See you all at 7 pm.

    February 19, 2014

  • Louisa

    Hi, I won't be able to get there til just after 8 but will try to locate you all at the cinema!

    February 18, 2014

  • Sue

    Just booked my ticket - Row H, seat 11. Unfortunately, my friend can't make it now, but looking forward to meeting you all for drinks and/or meal beforehand (or after, as the case may be!)

    February 17, 2014

  • Rachel T.

    If Harry (and your friend) would still like to go to this next week and need a lift, I live on Bath side of Bradford on Avon and would be happy to give you one if needs be.... Let me know...

    February 17, 2014

  • Elsa

    Got my ticket and hope to be able to make food/drinks before.

    February 16, 2014

  • Alison

    Hi Dave, if you still have the spare ticket I'm happy to buy it. Are we all meeting for a drink/bite to eat first?

    February 10, 2014

    • Dave V

      Kerry - yes. I'd suggest booking online. Will moot meeting times and places nearer the date.

      1 · February 12, 2014

    • kerry e.

      Ok I will x

      February 12, 2014

  • Sue

    Yes, would love to see this film so I and a friend would like to be included - see you all then!

    February 11, 2014

  • Dave V

    You think I'd know better, working in IT, but I've managed to book myself TWO tickets for this event.

    If you want the other one of mine let me know - Premium seats, £10, but the drawback is the seats are together so you'd be sat next to me.

    I've booked Row H, seats 8 and 9...

    February 10, 2014

  • Harry

    I'm hoping to bring a mate Dave - I haven't qualified for tart status yet...

    February 9, 2014

  • MervYn A.

    If the Meetup was in Bristol my answer would be yes as I'm intrigued by your brief synopsis. But,as I live here(and I don't drive), I am concerned at the possibility of maybe having probs. getting back home late at night in the current weather situation

    February 9, 2014

    • Dave V

      Ah well, Mervyn, never mind - but the weather may well have changed in three weeks' time.
