Tickets for the IMAX showing of Star Trek into Darkness went on sale yesterday in the UK, and fan demand was so high that it crashed the IMAX website.
The same high demand also caused difficulties for the ODEON online ticket sales site.
“Due to overwhelming demand for Star Trek @BFI IMAX online booking is currently down,” said The British Film Institute (BFI) via Twitter yesterday. “We’re doing all we can to rectify. Do bear with us.”
“We know you are really eager to book for #StarTrekIntoDarkness,” said ODEON via their Twitter account. “We’re currently experiencing some technical difficulties for BFI IMAX.”
The website is back up and running today.
