I know this has been on once before but I thought it was long enough ago now to make it worth repeating what a fantastic deal this is if you have youngsters and budgets are tight. I have just come back from seeing Despicable Me at our local Odeon and had a great time. We stopped off at McDonald's to get an ice cream cone (59p) on the way home too. The boy is happy I'm happy and I have only had to spend a total of £1.59 for the whole morning.

Just a foot note a few people are getting very hot and bothered about variations in pricing throughout the country. The average price does seem to be £1. Be warned though you may have to spend a pound or two more. It also seems like a bad idea to book online as you pay a booking fee. Just turn up and pay like the old days.


average price isnt £1, thats the lowest price. The standard £2.50 seems to be the general consensus in the thread.

It's £2.50 in Telford so does that unbalance the statement "The average price does seem to be £1." by the OP?? Ignoring the deal for a second, I can see both sides of the argument:

1. If no-one posts offline deals due to possible locality, then no-one benefits.
2. Misleading posts sometimes lead to unnecessary journeys which means people are actually left out of pocket rather than benefitting from deals.

It's rarely black and white, usually swings and roundabouts.

leather - Feb 05, 2011 20:39presterjohn71leather - Feb 05, 2011 20:19presterjohn71So now the answer is revealed. £2.50 the on-line price takes into account the credit card/bank charge. So the answer is stick to paying at the door which most of us do anyway. Cheers for that guys.Wrong I am afraid, you pay £2.50 each kid and the adult will go free so 2 kids 2 adults £5.00. This is at the pictures and online! You then pay an additional £3.50 booking fee online taking it to £8.50. There are posters all over the cinemas saying quite clearly £2.50 for kids (and the the adult goes free).Wrong I am afraid, more people than not are agreeing that they are only paying the same as me when they go the Odeon and pay at the door. It looks like a few Odeon's are not doing this though. Is your local a super cinema that has no competition? Or a flea-pit with other cinemas within easy reach? That may be the deciding factor in all this.Yawn!! Just because I mentioned North East you come up with flea pit! We are within equal distance of 2 Odeons one being the Metrocentre, a dismal grimy little shopping centre. They are then in competition with 2 other cinema chains within 10 miles. I could not care what other people pay in other areas, this is a national website so your information is local! You will have people in all areas thinking this is always the case, it is not! Any time you book online it is the price of the film plus £3.50 booking fee. You should have mentioned in your post, that it may be regional! Your fragile defending of it at every opportunity by the way is disturbing.Edited By: leather on Feb 05, 2011 20:48 Your pointless attacks are just as disturbing. As for the flea pit comment. That says more about you than me. I did not even take any n otice of the area you come from. Flea pit just means old cinema to me which is what my Odeon happens to be. As far as I was aware this is an national offer. Most people seem to think the same. A few people are saying different and of them even fewer have actually paid at the door to confirm that higher amount.

Do you ever give up? If you 'send people' to the pictures by telling them 'just turn up'. Two things could happen.
1. The movie could be full, upset kids on your hands.
2. They charge them the £2.50 each, that it shows in the majority of places. Guaranteed to annoy the parents.

Yet again another piece of ill informed advice!
But I bet you put an umpteenth update on now! We know you have a good deal, it is great if you can get it. The majority can't and that is a fact, and I bet the majority don't live within a mile of a picture house to call in and check.

Show me where the majority of places charge £2.50 If you really have a problem with this deal then just cold it (which no doubt you have) and move on. You are the one with the attitude all I have done post what I think is a great deal. Something this site is supposed to be about. I also notice that in over two years of using this site you have not actually posted any deals yourself. Easy to criticise people when you don't actually contribute is it?

Show me where ha ha ha durgh! It is called the Odeon website, highlight any cinema then go from there. What you should have done before putting on a regional deal!

If you look at my original comment, I did not criticise you, you decided that people were out to shoot down the deal! You should read all the comments on here-from no 1, then see who started mouthing off!
Are you stalking me? Looking at my profile, you really do have issues!!

I just received a pm from the OP telling me off reporting the deal as not being £1.
I think the beef people have here is the fact that the title says £1, where as its most likely £2.50 and if youre lucky its £1.
OP, all you have to do is a quick edit.

And perhaps he could also look up the meaning of average, when he has stopped fuming...

FWIW, it was £2.50 at Epsom Odeon and adults got in free, so £7.50 for the 5 of us - happy days :-)

Oh, and "...Wimpy Kid" was really funny too :-p

Yeah I saw it today too, the sound kept changing pitch tho, although that made the film a bit more enjoyable.

I thought I'd test this to try and resolve but all I get is:-
There are currently no performances scheduled.

Anyone else getting that?
Reading through the thread though it does seem that it is £2.50 for most members, including one who works there; so I have edited the thread title to reflect that it is '£1 to £2.50 depending on cinema'.

presterjohn71, if a member reports to mods that the deal is £2.50 and asks us to check that is no reason to send a 'telling off' PM as this is one of the reasons that we have the report function ie to report that a deal price is wrong. I don't want to discuss this at all in the thread further though, so if you do have any concerns please drop me a PM. Thanks.
