Any idea whether the cinema will be busy Christmas Eve?

We saw Rise of the Guardians on Monday.

DC enjoyed it (I fell asleep for 15 minutes)
There were maybe 20-30 other people in there.

I did notice a load of other parents nodding off.
Apart from the family with the toddler who screamed was a bit grizzly all the way through.

We go every Christmas eve and it's usually busy Ish but we have never had t prebook.

I want to see the Life of Pi on boxing day with the family - I've no idea if it will be crowded or not! Will probably book tickets anyway.

I've never been to a quiet cinema on Christmas eve. It's usually absolutely packed, with parents and bunches of children waiting to see if anyone whose booked doesn't turn up.

I'd definitely book ahead.

I'm taking the DC to see the Guardians film (we've seen Nativity 2 ludicrously early)

I may as well pre-book it, save me precious queue time.

I'd book to be on the safe side - hit or a miss really and depends on what time the films are on and what time they shut.

I can tell you that the swimming pool is usually quiet - that's what we do usually - it tires them out better than the cinema and you can watch a DVD at home before bed if there isn't a decent movie on tv at the right time.

I went last year for the first time & it was packed.

I went last Xmas Eve to Arthur Christmas and it was busy (that screen anyway).
