    Excuse the random first post and thread, but I'd like to hear peoples' experiences with this as Google didn't turn up anything useful.

    I'm 22 and my girlfriend is 20. I have ID (driving license), and although my girlfriend did have ID in the form of her passport, she lost it and never did anything about it (:rolleyes:). I've tried to convince her that it's probably in her room because I like to think that if someone did find it on the street or something, they'd hand it in and get it sent back to her (or am I just a fool and giving people too much credit?)

    Anyway, I want to see Django Unchained in its opening weekend and intend to book the tickets online in order to secure decent seats. What I want to know is, will the person who checks tickets (ticket guard?) ask us for ID and, perhaps more importantly, will they allow me a refund if they refuse us entry because my girlfriend has 'misplaced' hers?

    If anyone has any experience of this or if anyone has worked/does work in an Odeon and knows what their protocols are in such scenarios, I'd appreciate your input.


    Thanks all.



    PS. Apologies if this thread would be better suited in the 'Film' sub-forum.

    If you pick up your tickets from a self service machine or if you just go up to the till yourself without your girlfriend you might get away with it but it depends on the person checking the tickets and the cinema itself

    Thanks for the response.

    Picking up the tickets won't be a problem, though, as my local Odeon has collection points. My only concern is the person who tears the tickets before you walk into the area with all the screen doors. But I guess it's as you say: it will depend entirely on the person checking the tickets.

    Yeah, they don't care. Used to do it before I turned 18.
