With a lot of help from friendly people, tickets for bro and me are secured. YAY!
We couldn't help but think, that since the movie is released the day before Ponycon, that probably more people than us would be keen on watching it? Wouldn't it be cool if we filled a whole salon in Bristol with bronies and other pony fans?!

I agree, maybe like getting a group together to see movie wouldn't be a bad idea. If someone sets up the event, I'll be happy to attend (if I'm not busy). I would like to host it but I would prefer someone who is from the United Kingdom to set it up, instead of myself coming from Ireland and not knowing where to go.
There's a Vue cinema at the Cribbs Causeway shopping centre, which is a few miles away near Junction 17 of the M5. Here's a Google Map for reference. Hope that's helpful to anyone thinking of going! Mind you, if the film is really big in the UK, it might have sold out for the first night!
Cool! Vue's page confirms the chain will show MLP the movie, but there doesn't seem to be any times nor tickets available yet. The tickets can't already have been released and sold out, surely? Let's keep our eyes open and let each other know when we see tickets released? We'll arrive in Bristol in the afternoon, so an evening screening would suit us best, if anyone wants to get behind that
I would so be up for this and I think a few others would be as well Given that it's a kids movie, if there is a later showing that might be best, both for people getting to bristol and not sharing the screen with a load of kids XD
The most popular U-rated film currently on show at the Cribbs Causeway cinema is Despicable Me 3, and the latest showings for that are about 5.30-6.00 pm. Any later than that and it's all age-restricted films. I'd expect things to be pretty similar for the MLP movie, though who knows?
woodgazer -- I'm pretty sure the tickets haven't been released yet. When I saw Rainbow Rocks and Friendship Games at the Worcester Vue, I didn't book tickets either time until about two weeks before the day. This year's movie will be a much bigger deal, so maybe they'll release details a little earlier, but I wouldn't expect to be able to book for a while yet.
There are a few other cinemas in Bristol (eg an Odeon in the city centre) but the only one I know for certain is showing the MLP movie is the Cineworld in Hengrove, which is miles away in the south of the city.
Due to me having my little one to look after until my husband get home from work just after 6 then I'll only be able to make it to my local cinema at Yate (with little one in tow as she so want's to watch it too! But notto Mall etc due to bus times and her bed time been 7:30pm (any later and she turns into a Banshee!)
The Yate cinema is a Cineworld and the 47 bus goes from Bristol bus station to Yate center(opposite Cinema) Also the x46? goes from Bristol to Yate center too. No idea which one goes via Fishponds but I'm told a few do.
So that might be an option too. Loads of food places next door and around plus toy shop with and Tescos with a few of the new Movie toys
I get an email a week before release with times on normally as it's only a 6 screener so will put times on here when I get them
A little update: four five cinemas in Bristol have updated their times today and said they *will* be showing the MLP Movie from Friday onwards. They are: Cineworld (Hengrove), Odeon (Broadmead), Scott Orpheus (Westbury Park) and Showcase (Avonmeads). Unfortunately the Vue at Cribbs Causeway is not listing the film, though they might just be late updating. (Edit: they were! In fact, that Vue is showing it more than any of the others -- eight times on Sunday, for example!)
I put up a little summary on my blog of things like ticket prices and maps of the location for each cinema, so if anyone's interested:

I'm sad to see that it is showing early times and no later times like pass 4pm, but I understand why. The cinemas don't believe that showing the film in later times would be beneficial because most likely the viewers will be kids and kids usually go to the movies around these times. They don't think that adults (or teens) are wanting to see it at later times, and it really back to stereotypes in society. Extremely disappointing
Hey, I just created this account to let you know that a group of us are planning to see the movie in the Showcase Cinema De Lux in Cabot at 4:30pm. We're currently filling out row K to try and stay out of the way of the intended demographic moviegoers
