First deal so bear with me... not so much a 'deal', but might be good if you're an F1 fan!

On Sunday 8th July, Formula One Grand Prix is coming to the big screen as Vue plays host to the British Grand Prix. For the first time in history, cinema goers will be able to experience all the excitement of the Grand Prix in stunning HD Quality and Dolby Digital 5:1 Surround Sound. Watch Lewis Hamilton race to the finish line without the disruption of commercial breaks and in the comfort of a fully air-conditioned auditorium. This unique experience also includes a complimentary official race programme worth £10, a free drink and a bag of popcorn.

£15 for adults, £7.50 for kids, or a family of 4 for £30!

£15... jeez

I've got a 94" screen at home with full surround sound that I'll be watching it on! Plus, I might decide to have a bit of a GP party, with bbq - couldn't do that in the cinema!

£15 for a 2 hour kip?! No thanks!

Except the GP isn't available in high-def with 5.1 to consumers - Though I agree the bbq steals the victory. What projector have you got? I've got a Panasonic PT-AE500 throwing a 120" picture, but desperately wish I could afford an upgrade.

Anyway, back to the deal. I'd love to go to Vue and watch it, but as with the recent Genesis screening it's just too damn expensive.

I've very bemused by this "High-Def" quality they're banging on about, as F1 is broadcast worldwide on the same FIA feed which is NOT in HD.

Much as I'd love to watch the race on a huge screen, not being able to smoke or get drunk AND having to pay £15 for the privilege... nah, good idea but no thanks Mr Vue Cinema!

voted hot! Sounds great, would be great to see Lewis get another podium! Also watching without having commercial breaks just at a crucial moment.

I expect the reason Vue are doing this is precisely because it's the first grand prix to be broadcast in HD.

Seems that the "a complimentary official race programme worth £10, a free drink and a bag of popcorn." is actually what is making the admission an extortionate £15! Would rather pay a fiver to watch without it thank you.

I remember watching a Tyson fight televised live in the cinema about 10 years ago and it was a great atmosphere, F1 racing though just isn't going to cut it, especially as its televised for free at home.

I can't however knock Vue's initiative as at least they are giving something new a go but they seemed to have missed a trick and should be bundling in a free cinema ticket to get repeat customers or have I got it wrong and the cinema is not dying afterall?

Hey, don't forget the free popcorn! I agree, would be nice if it was free. There's always the pub though...

I am sure Grand Prix fans won't mind paying £15 for it somehow. You will get a great view in the cinema, often at grand prixs you don't really get to see what is going on. I am sure it is the nextbest thing however if you can't get a ticket. I would be tempted but I have a little 15 month old that I need to look after and I am a woman!!!!

Voted hot!

I think its good value. not everyone has the massive screen, and a bunch of F1 fans in one place will actually be pretty good! £15 seems steep, but that's £10 worth of programme, and who else gets HD formula 1?

I think the atmosphere _could_ be good too...hamilton overtakes alonso for the win...pretty sure a lot of people would cheer! ...apart from the alonso fans hahaha. thinking about it, it's like putting milwall and chelsea in the same room...

Not worried about the rain - got plenty of covered areas to put the bbq. :thumbsup:

Picture is plenty good enough without HD. Got an Infocus Screenplay, linked to Yamaha RX-V2600. Looked at getting a HD projector, but decided that it wasn't worthwhile for now, until all the format wars are sorted. I might also add, it's brilliant fun with the Wii or X-box linked to it - take splaying games to a different level! :thumbsup: TV is for wimps! :-D

Is that to watch the grand prix or to steal his stuff?????

I've been watching current films at Odeon Digital screenings in Kingston which is HD I'm told. Whatever it is, it's amazing, and I wouldn't go back to normal screenings given the choice.
#24
Is it 720p or 1080p?
#25
Any Lancaster based fans? I'm almost tempted to bite the bullet, though I'm undecided whether I'll cope with my Sunday hangover yet.

I wouldn't actually give my location - unless it was for some top totty to come round to watch the race in skimpy pit-lane girl outfits! :-D :w00t:
#27
voted cold - vue clearly experimenting with ways to put bums on seats during off-peak hours. nice idea but too expensive, not sure if the cinema layout would result in a great atmosphere, it isnt really designed for that.

Same here, just cause this can't be sold for profit on ebay doesn't mean its a rubbish deal.

Motorsport fans will love this.

i go to 3-4 grand prix a year and think this is a stupid idea, fans wants to chat with each other about whats going on, cinema is not the place to have group disscussion so i will def not be going

Got to say that the Live HD screening of Genesis in concert from Germany in the Vue cinemas was excellent this week.
The HD was excellent , ok there was the occasional break in sound (only a second or so about three times) but the 5.1 mix was superb and the volume was cranked up pretty high.
Cold beers and bottles of wine were being sold down the front.
If the F1 show gets the same treatment its worth going :thumbsup:
#31
right the genesis concert for vue was shown clear in HD on 1W 11531V 13333 and 5E 11747V 27500 satellites, worth a look if you have a motorised dish and HD sat box

did anyone bother going to watch the French Grand Prix on the big screen?

thinks it is only the british on the big screen

I agree!

I've only started watching F1 because of Hamilton, I'm sure the novelty will wear off (my hubby wonders when).

I've been watching him at home on my 80" picture (it's in the lounge) with a Sanyo Z5. It still looks great (as does Lewis :thumbsup: ).

I'll be watching with some of my female friends.

Also got Xbox 360, Sky HD, DVD player and a Denon 2307 receiver connected to it.

No we won't, paying twice the price of a film for this is too much.

I'm the world's biggest motorsport fan, at the price of a film we'd talk. £15 can only be considered a joke.

They did a Genesis Gig using the same system last wednesday, I went to that.

It was HD and looked and sounded great - there were only a couple of audio/visual glitches that just went to proove it was live. It was very popular and queing was a pain, so turn up early if you go.

The gig was well worth the £15 and made a great birthday present for my father - if F1 is your thing then I can reccomend the service you get at least.

Nice to see someone else that's joined the world of large viewing! I use a 94" screen, although I want to get a bigger one at some point. It's hard to beat the experience of a big picture, with full surround sound, at home! :thumbsup:

I've booked at Bristol, I know loads of people are going along so the atmosphere should be good.

It's worth pointing out that it's also at some Odeon Cinemas...

http://www.odeon.co.uk/fanatic/film_info/m10759/Formula_1/

I agree £15 is a bit steep, I can live without a programme and I would rather choose exactly what food and drink I buy when I get there.
#39
i went to this and everyone seemed to love it!

Absolutely crazy thunderstorm about 20 mins before the start and the feed went down and the was mass panic but it came back and worked great.

People at the end were asking if they could buy season tickets at the end for the rest of the year.

PS You could probably flog the official magazine on ebay and make a couple of quid back i suppose??
