Is it me or is the cost of going to the cinema increasing to ridiculous levels?
We were considering a last minute trip to the pictures last week until we realised it was going to cost £25 for a family ticket! We decided against going and instead went to Cineworld on Saturday morning to watch one of their Movies for Juniors films which only cost £1.50 per person.
If you don’t know about Movies for Juniors, they’re brilliant! Our local Cineworld usually show three or four slightly older kids movies on a Saturday morning for just £1.50 – this week for example they’re showing Muppets Most Wanted, How to train your dragon and Percy Jackson.
One thing I did discover though when we were looking at booking to go last week was that Cineworld do an offer called a Take 2 Offer which allows two of you to watch a popular film with two drinks and some popcorn for just £10!
But, and there’s always a but, you need to go on a Thursday night and the offer includes a set film so you don’t get to choose from all the new releases. The good bit is that it seems to be along the lines of the Movies for Juniors format in that Cineworld seem to be selecting slightly older films that were really popular when they were first released.
These great deals got me thinking so I thought I’d have a look and see what other cinemas were offering….
I couldn’t find any deals on the Odeon or Showcase websites but Vue have some offers on kids films similar to Cineworld’s Movies for Juniors deal on weekend mornings. They have films like Despicable Me 2 and Frozen coming up but it looks like their movies vary dependent on the cinema so it’s worth giving your local a call.
They also have a Super Tuesday offer where you will get a third off tickets on a Tuesday if you sign up with them here.
And don’t forget about Orange Wednesdays where you can get a buy one get one free deal by texting film to 241 from your Orange, EE or T Mobile phone.
Or you could just stay at home, watch a DVD and save a fortune….. 😉
