Anyone seen they have changed the prices again. It £9.80 for a ticket in my local now (not london) They have put the price up by almost £2 a ticket. Seriously thinking of not going there anymore.
Just a little rant really!

I can see why people would now, even worth waiting and buying it on bluray when it comes out, still cheaper.

£9.80!! jeez! and the cinemas will still tell you they make virtually nothing on ticket prices and need to sell food and drink. We have unlimited yearly cineworld passes which we get cheap through my brothers company(£50 per year)-kids go 2 or 3 times every week so its well worth the money.

What company is that? Are there other companies signed up to the scheme?

From a cost perspective torrents plus 42 TV plus PS3 must work out cheaper over 2 years. I only go to the cinema on the freebie deals, the rest I torrent. Not great for the industry but movie "stars" getting £5 million at least per film, directors get millions and studios get hundreds of millions and we get stiffed for £20-30 which is robbery.

I'm all for wealth and people getting paid for talent/effort but the cost vs quality ratio and the disparity is extreme! Cinema's shoot themselves in the foot with food prices. Sell 10 at £5 or 20 at £3.50 for drinks, they'd rather do the former.

I do support small cinema though, the recent Leeds Festival had some great short movies by independant artists.

loads of companies must be signed up to it m8-brother has a chain of pubs and clubs and got this deal as an incentive for his managers,oldest son works for atkins engineering and they have the same deal so it must be fairly widespread.

Geez that’s a fair whack isn’t it

If you think of your average date.. That’s around £30-£35 for a trip to the cinema just on tickets, drink and popcorn each.

Last time we went to the cinema it was for Avatar, only tend to go for big actiony type films. Although looking to hit up the IMAX in Birmingham for Tron.

If you have an empire cinema nearby, it's £2.95 on a tuesday any ticket for any film. Pretty much the only time I go to the cinema.
#11
No empire sadly. I live next to an odeon which is annoying, theres a cineworld about 20min drive so I might just have to do that. Lucky enough we have some free tickets to use up first.
#12
Thats outrageous... nearly £50 for a family like mine...guess we'll be waiting and buying dvds when they come out

I'll have a look around, it's an extremely good price.

I usually go Orange Wednesday but I don't like being restricted to one day a week and isn't great for babysitters.
#14
Just looked at prices for Odeon - £9.60 per adult during the week (probably more at weekends). Whereas Vue is £6.85 per adult for the same movie at around the same time (8pm).

I only go to the cinema on Wednesday using 241 or if I get free tickets.

Cinemas are just getting too expensive now, it is no wonder that people download or just wait for the movie to be released on blu-ray or dvd - you can buy the movie for the cost of one adult seeing it in the cinema!

£66 inc parking to see 90 minutes of football. At least the car parks are free at the cinema. £40 rugby league. A nice meal £60. Swimming £12. And thats for 2 people. I suppose the cinema isnt expensive compared to other events but it still is expensive for what it is.

Expensive country! Makes the TV licence and Sky TV packages seem value for money!

For that much you could buy popcorn, get a bottle of coke, multipack of sweets and download a new film, with £60 at least still in your pocket... For that same £60 you could get a 5.1 (albeit poor) for your home...

Edit. for a 3D film it's £9.50 for standard and £10.80 premium

£9.15 and £10.65 at my Vue (10 times better)

lmfao! obviously you know him too-he is a tad notorious-his father used to send heavies to school to deal with stefan being bullied-think the whole family are mental! havent seen him for years-last I heard he had the 101 offsales chain-dont know if he still does.
#28
We went yesterday to see gullivers travels in 3d. Had our own glasses, but did choose premium. 2 adults and 1 child £29.95 its a total rip off and the film wasn't worth seing in 3D. We don't go to the cinema often as OH can't keep awake!
#29
the only value thing is the kids club and orange wed..but the kids club is cheaper at vue and more choice when i last looked. I would rather spend the money on something lasts longer than 1half hours!

We need a local "gangsters" thread. They do all amuse me, every city/town has them.
#31
Very few films are worth paying anywhere near this kind of money to see. Last time I went to the cinema and felt that I got value for money and thoroughly enjoyed it was the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Never bother going now as too expensive. Same with the football and rugby; much cheaper to stay at home and watch it even if you don't get the atmosphere.
#32
yikkkkkkkkkkes!! dont get to go cos kids are too young but wow.... thats just stupid prices!
#33
Just got back from watching movie at local Odeon, £4.75 adult ticket on a tuesday.
#34
Nope, wasn't premium or a 3d film, and my local doesn't do any offers on tuesdays :(
banned#35
go the vue, best cinema imo
#36
Don't have the option of vue either :(
[mod]#37
£7.70 per ticket at Showcase here.

Stefan King used to own a number of pubs/clubs in Glasgow mainly. Was the G1 Group not his at one point?

Problem in most places is you can't do that kind of business unless you are "connected" in some way
#39
£4.20 Monday - Thursday at my vue... Most expensive one being £7.60 for 3d on Friday/Saturday night...

He also owns the Ionapub franchise over 200 pubs on top of the G1 Group and the offsales.

I've had dealings with his employees when out doing inspections...(_;)
