How to visit the cinema on a budget

I have always loved going to the cinema to see a good film.

I remember going to see ET as a child and just loving it! I wanted to ride a bike in the sky too. And later going to watch Grease (my dad fell asleep) and deciding I wanted to look like Sandy! I learned all the songs.  I remember going on my first ever date to see Saturday Night Fever (with a boy called Karl I was 12 and we held hands and I wore a black and white skirt!) I also recall going with my good friends before we all left for Uni to watch Beaches and cry buckets as we related the story to our own parting.

Cinema becomes a part of our history.

My children absolutely adore going to the cinema.

It doesn’t matter to them if you can watch the same thing on DVD months later or even for free on the TV 6 months down the line. Nope they like to see it on the Big Screen.

I have to admit so do I. Seeing a film on a  huge screen at back in the comfy seats with amazing sound and vision is an experience kids just adore.However for families who are on a budget the cinema is a real treat and one they probably cannot afford too often.

Well let me tell you about Cineworld. Movies For Juniors are discounted weekly screenings of great films at Cineworld Cinemas. For just £1.50 (only £3.00 for 3D!) you can choose from a selection of  kids movies, from animated films to live action spectacles. Register your details with mycineworld and sign up to receive exclusive film time emails, news and offers. What an absolute bargain price (and this price is for accompanying adults too…!)

So this week I get to take my 2 kids and me to see Postman Pat the Movie (it looks fab!) for just £4.50 MINUS 45p because I registered on the site. So £4.05  to go the cinema for 3 of us ..what a bargain. (Oh and feed and water them before you go to save on snacks too!)

    We love the Saturday morning Cineworld family films – they are so cheap, you get a discount if you register to make it even cheaper – plus being geared for families you don’t feel the pressure to keep the children super silent throughout the film!
    Of course I smuggle in our own sweets 😉

    I love the sound of this, sadly there are no Cineworld cinemas near to us to take up the offer. Our local cinema offers a kids club for £1.50 on a weekend but it has been the same two films showing for weeks 🙁

    Our nearest Cineworld is 20 miles away sadly.We do take advantage of the Kids club films which are £2 each.Great for a Sunday when you’ve got nothing planned.

    We’re HUGE fans of the Saturday morning cinema! It’s a great way to introduce kids to movies – especially given that my 4 year old often gets spooked and wants to leave! xx

    It is a good way of affordably going to the cinema – but thanks I didn’t know that you could go to 3D screenings too.

    I am a big fan of the cheaper kid’s showings as full price tickets are extortionate.

    There’s a Cineworld just around the corner from us. I’ll definitely pop in for one of the screenings, if the weather is horrible…

    We do this too – it’s great value as long as you stay away from the pick n mix 😉

    I can’t believe you get it so cheap, how did i not know about this! I don’t live near a cineworld so i guess i’m a little stuck for choice.
