I notice that a lot of the cinema sign ups have been shared with the UK garrison. Just wondering if there was a reason why this hadn't. I thought it might increase the amount of attendance. I will likely sign up as Chewie I just need to sort out my CRB and make sure I am available for the weekend. I'll let you know

As a general rule unless stipulated rebel only ( or they have their own invite) we extend all our troops to the UKG.
I think Jason was trying to finalise the dbs details with Cineworld to see if we could forgoe the dbs this time round.

Ok. I just noticed that on their events sign ups there weren't many in the east and this one might be popular. I'll wait and see what they say about the DBS check then shall I? It's not a problem getting it

I have extended this one to UKG who are waiting to see what feedback I receive from the cinema regarding the DBS.

Litetally just called the cinema as I hadn't received a reply to the email I sent them yet.

The manager on duty told me that Connor (the Manager who invited us) would not have requested the CRB/DBS unless he was instructed to.

So it stands that all attending costumers will need to provide a copy of their CRB/DBS checks.

I have informed the UKG and Mandos.

I don't think the cinema understands how DBS checks work. You are able to obtain a basic DBS check yourself which just details any criminal convictions you may have which I believe costs £45.99. A standard (good character) or enhanced (working with children etc) DBS check can only be obtained by an organisation/employer and costs more (free to volunteers) and is specific to that organisation/employer. If this is what the cinema requires anyone that signs up would have to provide numerous forms of ID and the cinema would then have to apply and pay for the checks themselves.
A number of members have enhanced ones for trooping at GOSH but are exclusive to them so of no use to this request. To my knowledge of all the hospitals RL/UKG troop at only GOSH have this requirement so why a cinema had this requirement is beyond me.

The instruction from the cinema was that a DBS (no specified type) was a requirement for this and future troops at their venue; as a volunteer organisation each member can decide if they think this kind of check is appropriate for them. As the venue is local to me and I have worked with them multiple times before, I decided it wasn't an issue for me and went on and got the basic DBS check done (https://www.gov.uk/guidance/basic-dbs-checks-guidance).
