Ozzylogic just posted this on facebook, if that is the case then i have an ENBD card. And I think I will go and get the tickets tomorrow before they change the rules again.

Excellent! Any idea which one of the ENBD cards is the offer on? I have an ENBD card too, but it's a regular (non-branded or "special" card).

Lemme know if you go tomorrow - I'll give you the reservation number.

Also, if the offer is for One+One free only (not 2+2 or 3+3), then lemme know, I'll come by with my card too.

Meydan IMAX really needs to do something about the people who work there:

I will agree with one of the comments, which says that the most irritating people are those that arrive after the screening has started, like the one who wrote that letter to 7-Days. He complained baout his seats being taken after the movie started - at that point, the cinema may well have just ejected them from the hall.

You want your seats, get there on time, and with enough time to settle down *before* the movie starts.

Of course, that doesn't mean the cinema was not at fault for selling the same seats twice, or the bitchy response by the customer service. But the customer is also at fault.

Shreq, do you remember what seats you booked when we all went for TDKR? I had the club card so I've booked G27 as that was the closest available seat to the centre, for the 30th, as that's the last day for TDKR.

I had booked D20-25, which they turned out to be VIP seats, so we sat on seat numbers G17-21.

G27 sounds too far from the centre...stick to early 20's I guess. Don't they have a map on their site? I don't think the card allows you to get the free tickets above G.

We have on on ours...

It has been confirmed. Meydan IMAX has designated some seats as "VIP SEATS". These seats are priced higher since they offer the "best viewing experience". The VIP seats are at AED 75.00 vs AED 60.00 for non-VIP seats.

Lol, we should just get Meydan to pay us royalties!

So 27 isn't all that bad, but 22/23 would be perfect. I just sat there recently (though it was E) and the angle and size were PERFECT.

Shariq's seating picture was really helpful and helped me decide, as the only other available seat on G was 17, so 27 was 1 seat closer (yay).

Yeah, no VIP seats using the free pass, but that's okay.

This EmiratesNBD offer of Buy-One-Get-One-Free was for The Dark Knight Rises only. Bought my tickets for Skyfall tomorrow, and the offer didn't apply.

I looked up the websites of the three UAE chains and there are no dates for releasing the prestigious award contenders. do you know of dates for releasing films like Django Unchained, Les Miserable, and Zero Dark Thirty?   I will come back in less than 3 weeks insha Allah and it'll be a shame to miss them.

you will be able to catch Zero Dark Thirty and Django Unchained....Les Miserable will be out this weekend i think and will be pulled after one week because 76% will fail to pronounce the title right to buy tickets and 24% will leave after they find out it's more Moulin Rough and less Braveheart.
