    Does anyone know if "The Muppets" will get an all-singing, all dancing Leicester Square premiere in London? If so, could you let me know the details?

    thanks folks :)

    Nothing yet announced that I have seen. Be great if there was. Maybe after Xmas we might get details!

    And if either of you hear anything, let me know also! And I shall be sure to keep you informed otherwise. I may attempt to get up to London if there's a chance of seeing real live Muppets, even at a distance.

    Be a great time for all us uk fans to actually meet up!

    Ok...the Missus has spilt the beans to me. She said she'd phoned the Odeon at Leicester Square to get me Premiere tickets for Christmas. The lady on the phone said that they won't know if theres going to be one until January 8th and to phone after that - apparently all premieres are only announced one month before.

    ...and Chris, I'd be really up for a meet up!!

    A meet up would be good. How far do people have to travel to London? I think it's about 167 miles for me!!
    Quite a long way if there is nothing else but the film, I mean if kermit & co are not there!!

    The movie ends here on January 5th after that I feel like flying to England or something to see it again

    Hmmm! Screening on the 27th Jan, eh?

    Edit: Oh great...its fully booked.

    Ok folks, i'm definitely up for a London Muppet Meet up! :) Here's the info I managed to find, yes there's a screening at the BFI on the Embankment , which unfortunately, according to the link, is fully booked, but you can check back on the day for tickets - http://www.bfi.org.uk/whatson/bfi_southbank/events/previews_in_conversation/loco_preview_the_muppets

    And secondly, I spoke to the manager at the EMPIRE cinema in Leicester Square, who said that they have the Premier for The Muppets because they're doing a promotional campaign leading up to the films release.

    He also mentioned that due to the building work that's going on there, with most of Leicester Square closed off, the Premier might not be able to take place, but it's currently under discussion.

    I'm not gonna take that as gospel, but he seemed fairly knowledgeable, and as per usual with Premiers, he said it would be invite only, but i'll certainly be keeping my ears open and doing everything I can to get a ticket.

    Do you mean January 15th?? Or did you go to one on 15th dec??

    Either way where is it??

  14. Kermieuk

    Kermieuk Well-Known Member

    Markit. As soon as you get any info on availability of premiere tickets please let us know. So desperately want to go!!

    BlueFrackle Well-Known Member

    I ment Jan 15th, but I still dont know any details. Someone emailed me and said they'd got me tickets!
  16. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Ooooh! Mark(it!) please keep us informed of anything else you find! Even if we just meet up for the Prem, see some Muppets drive by (hopefully!) and then get Chinese, that seems like a fun meetup! And maybe we can catch the movie shortly after.
  17. Kermieuk

    Kermieuk Well-Known Member

    Sounds like a good plan, I love Chinese.......oh and muppets!!

    Merry Christmas everyone
