Popped head in to Printworks, Vue reopened at a basic state no ticket machines and limited showings but they have upgraded the big screens behind the ticket desk. Was curious if they had changed prices but no prices on display.

Ticket prices are about the same in the evenings but cheaper in the daytime from what I remember of Odeon prices.

They installed ticket machines inside where the Odeon ones they are back, are you saying they are not working because they were there when I looked in last week.

All with signs saying not in use, looked like they were the old small odeon ones still to be removed or rebranded, the two big odeon machines have gone as have all the arcade machines downstairs at least.

All the Odeons equipment has been removed they ticket machines were white with awful touch screens. The new ones are back boxes which are the latest generation Vue ones which I think think are a new design for here and Leicester Square

Autumn and Winter?

Grey, cloudy, miserable, wet, etc?

What the f*** is anyone going to see from the wheel in those months, apart from on the odd clear day? Madness.
