Jon Longva ran Sunday on the hour-long trip from the Jessheim area, in the county of Akershus to the Odeon cinema at Storo in Oslo, together with her boyfriend and a friend of hers. Where they were, according to Longva a disappointing meeting with Norway's biggest cinema, the Odeon cinema.DISAPPOINTED: Kinogjenger Jon Longva. Photo: Private Show more
At the opening in march of last year raved about the Odeon-the boss of that kinosenteret their is so modern and great, that they hoped to be a destination also for the audience outside Oslo. Longva took the Odeon on the word, and would see the Transformers movie "Bumblebee" in the Odeons huge IMAX-hall. The trio had pre-paid VIP tickets, at the usual cost 265 million per unit. In addition, acted for about 100 million each in the kiosk, " says Longva to the Newspaper.
We showed the tickets and put us in the saddle. Eventually it came to an employee in the main hall and asked if we would see the "Bumblebee". Yes, we responded. Then came the message that the appearance was cancelled, because it was sold too few tickets. They had set up another movie, "Bohemian Rapsody", instead, " says Longva.Norway's new grand hall offers the ultimate, but it costs - Cynical
He adds that they were amazed and very annoyed over what happened.
I have never experienced anything similar, and I'm an avid kinogjenger. We have planned a trip to Oslo, norway, run far, and looked forward to movie night. I think it is very cynical of the Odeon. There was not enough people, so they will earn more money and set up the new film, but we come from far away and will not get the information before we sit there.
As compensation got all three two free tickets each. Then they returned slukkøret to Jessheim. At home wrote Longva an e-mail to Odeon management where he reviews the case as "ufyselig".
He got reply from kinosjef Ivar Halstvedt. The newspaper is sent to the correspondence where the cancellation is confirmed by Odeon-boss, who excuses the incident."Bumblebee" is the coziest "Transformers"movie - I gremmes
the Odeon and Halstvedt adds up langflat.
- One should be able to rely on that the show you bought a ticket to actually take place. This must be terribly annoying and very disappointing, and there is no excuse. I gremmes simply. We put ourselves totally deflated and sorry at the deepest. This never happens again, " says Halstvedt to the Newspaper.
Cancellations because of the empty saddles happens almost never, according to kinosjefen. "Bumblebee" was cancelled due to very poor ticket sales, and therefore replaced with "Bohemian Rapsody". According to Halstvedt, it was only sold five tickets to the "Bumblebee", but the IMAX auditorium has a capacity of 467 people.KINOSJEF: Ivar Halstvedt.

- the Customer calls the cancellation cynical.
Through the week we see along the way that certain movies sell better than others. When we change movies and the saddles on an ongoing basis, but this applies to performances, which has not sold a single ticket. This makes all the cinemas in the Uk every week. It is however sold so few tickets that we will see that it is not to be displayed, we will notify you as early as possible and compensates the ticket.
- do you Change routines now?
- Yes. It has gone wrong in two places. You did not obtain the customers ' contact information and thus not given them information in advance. In addition, they have passed billettkontrollen without having been caught. At the same time we had staff who were looking after them. No matter, that an impression will be cancelled without everyone informed never happens again.
Halstvedt says that Longva and others who had to leave the IMAX hall, has been offered compensation for the tort. In the e-mail sent to Longva offers Halstvedt two additional complimentary tickets, two gratismenyer in kinokiosken and a gift-certificate for two meals at a nearby restaurant.When "Fifty Shades fax menu"-the film was over, there was these again in the cinema: - They were both clean and dry
