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…..wow!)
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!)
