    My Little Pony The Movie
    Yorkshire/Leeds Meet Up

    It's not long off now, the wait will be over before we know it! The most anticipated movie of the year will be coming to UK cinemas on the 20th October. As that weekend is UK PonyCon in Bristol, and i'm sure many people will be seeing it there, I thought we'd be best off holding later. So on the 4th November I invite you all to come down to Xscape to see the movie together.

    Xscape is an indoor Ski Slope and Leisure centre, with cinema, bowling, golf, laser quest, arcade, numerous restaurants and a shopping centre next door. Meaning we'll have a ton of fun stuff to do after the movie to celebrate!



    Date: Saturday 4th November 2017
    Meet Time: 12:30
    Location: Xscape Yorkshire - Meet at Entrance

    Address:
    Colorado Way

    13:00 - Go for a meal (please make suggestions in the thread!)

    18:00 - Potentially Go Bowling, Laser Quest or Golfing or chill in one of the many coffee shops

    ~9:00am - Wetherspoons for breakfast

    Can't do this, unfortunately - it's my parents' 50th wedding anniversary so I shall be elsewhere on pain of death.

    (I'm not even kidding here - if I didn't turn up they'd make my life a living hell)

    Weekend before is UKPonyCon so that's out, and I absolutely cannot skip out on my parent's anniversary do (they'd kill me if I did)

    Weekend after is doable assuming that it's still showing somewhere.

    I hope I can, I know my mom is overprotective.
    But I went to Xscape a few times and if I can convince my friend to come with my mom would TOTALLY let me come.
    I'll have to check with my friend cause he works a lot, if he can't come I'd have to go with my brother and he is IMPOSSIBLE at cinema's -_-

    I really hope we don't see it in 3D cause my eyes can't handle 3D it's quite painful for them.

    Thankfully, it would appear that the 3D fad has died off. I, personally, will not miss it.

    I personally LOVE 3D, but not at the cinema. I have a lazy eye and it seems to mean that 90% of the time I can't see 3D properly in the cinema but can see it fine at home due to being able to tweak the convergence on the TV.

    Strange that this movie is not showing on Cineworlds website yet except for Dundee and Falkirk. Are they normally this slow to add new films?

    Great to hear! See you guys there :D

    Yeah, that's fairly typical for Cineworld, they don't usually have the showings up until the week of release.
