There are no tickets left for event I'm trying to book for - is there a Wait List?
We are always working on updating our site and a wait list is on the development schedule, but unfortunately we do not have anything in place at present.
However, if someone cancels (usually close to the event date when we send out reminders) the cancelled tickets are made available again, so it’s worth checking for returns.

What is EAS
How do you know my preference?
Currently preferences are defined by films you have chosen to see. As your membership develops we will send you invites which will help profile your interests – For example if we have been asked to target women between 25 and 40 for a chick flick and you are offered and take tickets to this, you are likely to get offered more of this genre. We will at a later stage be asking our key members to profile their account so that we have more information on your preferences and can work with you on more detailed film information
We can only offer each membership targeting around their postcode. However, if we have something say in London or another key city, we do offer to a wide (usually 70km) audience – wherever is a reasonable travelling distance. However, if we only have a few, say in Central London with short notice, we will only offer to those that could reasonably be able to travel that far in time.
Why does PayPal say 5 years?
PayPal: 5 Year Subscription. PayPal sign ups are automatically set up for a renewal, every year for 5 years. You can however cancel your subscription at any time.
How do I sign up for Early Alerts?
Full details are in this link: www.showfilmfirst.com/service/EAS.php If you are interested, please read the information which clearly sets out the offer and the terms and conditions. Places are limited and we hold a waiting list if you area is full.
My membership does not say VIP anymore?
We have changed the system and membership status does not show on account info as we are changing from VIP to EAS (Early Alerts Service).
I’ve seen codes on line that you did not send me?
Please read the terms and conditions you signed up to: www.showfilmfirst.com/service/EAS.php
We never post on forums and we don’t automatically offer tickets to every film we ticket for – see details in offer page. Sometimes we have a specific brief on who tickets should go to which may be based on age, gender, location and previous films since. Other times we may simply just have a few tickets and have to pick a random number of people.
If you would like us to refund you and revert to standard membership please let us know.
What is Early Alerts Text Service?
Early Alerts text service gives members the opportunity to get text information before it goes to the whole database. For those living in cities, this often includes shows and other events, not just film.
How it Works
If you would like to subscribe to Early Alerts texts you simply text VIP, followed by a space and your postcode to 84010.
Eg: VIP SS0 8JJ
This will cost your standard network rate and £1:50 per Early Alerts text (see full pricing details below). You will never receive more than TWO texts per week, and you can ‘unsubscribe’ at anytime, (simply send the word ‘STOP’ to 84010) and you will still remain on our email database.
You will be billed your standard message network rate when you sign up. Each Early Alerts text will cost you £1.50.
But remember, going to the cinema is more than £5 per ticket (and you get two with Showfilmfirst), and these are all previews – that is you see them before they are released!
This is a subscription service and you will receive a maximum of 2 messages per week, totaling a maximum of £3.
Text STOP to 84010 at any time to opt-out.
Legalities To subscribe to the ShowFilmFirst Early Alerts club send the word ‘VIP’ followed by a space and your Post Code to 84010.
You will receive a maximum of 2 messages per week depending upon your location and film availability.
Texts will be sent at least 24 hours before film is showing.
Each text costs £1.50. This is a subscription service.
To unsubscribe at any time send the word ‘STOP’ to 84010.
For customer support please call 07847 788883 or 020 3565 2160
PLEASE NOTE WE ONLY HAVE A FEW MEMBERS ON EARLY ALERT AT ANY TIME TO ENSURE THERE ARE TICKETS AVAILABLE . You can be waitlisted if there is currently no space available.
