Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Parts 1 AND 2 - 3D. Odeon. £9.95

80
Found 9th Jul 2011
First post here so please be gentle!

I have just booked in to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 at 1 minute past midnight (morning of Friday 15/7) and in the confirmation email it says I can get a free ticket to the showing of part 1 at 9pm the same evening! So double film for the price of one!

The ticket is
£9.20 for Adults.
£7.55 for Students/Senior Citizens.
£7.40 for a Teens (13-17 years)
plus some family deals too.

Oh, I think you may have to pay an extra quid for a pair of 3D glasses but if you have a pair lying around you don't need to pay this!

I know there is the Orange Wednesday deal out there (I take advantage) but for opening night Potter this seems like a good deal!

This was booked for the Stoke-on-Trent Cinema but no mention of this deal is on the website. Hopefully applies to other cinemas also!

Why show a children's film at midnight?



It's for people who want to see it as soon as possible on the day of release!

Going to be booking mine for Odeon at Festival Park tomorrow!

Heat added!

Not a kids film either. Usual ignorance. i wouldn't want any kid of mine seeing it.

No I will not be gentle. It normally costs £9.20 for an adult to watch a 3D film?

ROFL! Oh wait... glasses may cost more? oO

When did they convert Part 1 into 3D?

My local odeon is one of the most expensive in the country, £9 for a standard adult ticket, if you want 3D premier seats its £13.10 plus booking fee plus glasses!!!

I paid even more for gallery IMAX tickets but as its the last film I thought why not!

Saw this last week... Amazing film

The extra pound for glasses should be included in the price because not all of us have spare cinema 3d glasses laying about.

Stunned that people think a tenner to go to the cinema is a good deal too.

and not everyone who wants to see it, wants to see it in a cinema full of kids getting up to go to the toilet every 5 minutes! I had my tickets booked weeks ago, shame this deal has only just come out!

You really think this, so if you go to see 10 3d films a year your end up with 9 spare pairs and be paying for them every time you go when you dont need them, thats why they charge for them seperately, so you dont end up with a load of unwanted pairs and its a much greener option and also saves you money.

Whats wrong with kids watching it? My 9 yr old is Potter obsessed, and this has lead to my 5, 7, 10 and 12 yr olds loving all the films and desperate for this new one! I was concerned about the 5 yr old, but she genuinely loves it and having grown up to 5 with Dr Who (which can be horrible) around it's fine. My 2 yr old isn't interested...

Nearly £10 to go to the cinema?! oO

£15 at vue for a teen so count yeself lucky

It's not about whether they like it or not. Its whether its appropriate for them to watch it.

Deathly Hallows part one was rated PG12A. In other words, appropriate for 12 years and above. Deathly Hallows part two will likely be just, if not even more, mature viewing. Whether or not you choose to be a responsible, or irresponsible parent, has nothing to do with this rating and is no basis for any arguement you might have.

The themes within the Harry Potter stories have always increased in maturity throughout the series, as JK wanted the stories to grow up, and mature, with the audience that started off with them when they were first released.

Jesus christ. And they moan about piracy??

When it costs £13.10 x2, plus food and drinks (not necessary but always nice, £6?) for two people to watch a bloody film once, IE well over £30, then they are just asking for it.

Haven't read the Potter books I presume.....

Hot, i'm paying £13 at my local VUE for the same thing. Why do i want to see this at midnight? Because i don't want to see my films laden with teenagers and chavs who do there best to do anything but watch the film. Being midnight it will be 18+ usually, which makes for a much better film! It seem's this one is available to all but the odd's of any kids/teenagers being there on a school night is minimum.

As for all the parental discussion i'm sure this film is pretty timid compared to the console games kids are now playing. How many times i will be playing an 18 game and a 10 year old boy blasts out with his balls high voice over the microphone. Now that's shocking parenting.

Oh, and many cinema's aren't allowing under 18's into the midnight showing, so check with your individual cinema's!

On the topic of responsible parents, at the preview showing there was a mother who took her kids there, and annoyingly her kids screamed at numerous occasions as it is a very very mature 12A (she was told to control her chlidren or risk being asked to leave) and if I was a parent, I'd go and watch it myself before taking my kids...

Am fascinated by all of the complaints about the price of tickets. Don't know about all of you but my living room is not big enough to turn into a 3D theatre and I certainly don't have the money to equip such an establishment.

Are all of you naysayers really trying to tell us that watching a pirated or genuine version of any film on your pokey 52 inch television with its 7.1 sound system is a better value experience than a properly equipped 3D theatre with sound system to match?

Seems to me that, yet again, there are an awful lot of people who know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

Probably a much better quality picture on a 52" judging by what I've seen at the cinema lately.
Sound is way too loud as well.

Absolutely pirated is better value if you dont mind waiting a bit longer for an HD / 3D copy to be released. Genuine are a rip off at maybe £20 for a disk i will probably only watch once. A download is free.

My living room can take the whole family comfortably.

Occassionally I might choose to go to the cinema, but clearly its going to work out at least £20 a head once you allow for travel, food, drink, etc.

I think almost all cinemas only admit over 18s after about 10:30, this is certainly the case at all Vue cinemas

Did anybody say it was the same experience, of watching it at the cinema as watching it at home? No they bloody didn't, moron.

They asked if it was worth £70 (for a family of two adults and two children) to watch the exact **** same thing except with on a bigger screen and with louder sound. While not being able to go to the toilet as you'll miss something, while not being able to eat/drink what you want, and while not having any freedom to rewind bits you missed/exciting bits you want to see twice?

No, it bloody isn't worth £70.

Yeps, that's what it costs.
Then you need to factor in - food, drink, @rseholes playing with phones / talking, uncomfortable seats. Plus our local cinema throws in (for free) 2nd rate image and poor surround sound.

And that is why I wait for films to come out on BluRay. Cheaper, better image, far superior sound, no @rseholes, and I can eat and drink what I like without baulking at the price.

WWhohooo!!! Hang on there fella ! When did cinemas start charging a booking fee ?
As if they haven't already excelled in the art of taking the P, they up the ante once again LOL

i paid £25 for the double showing (part1 and 2) over here in sweden so stop complaining you have it good

Good price, but I can't go to the midnight showing (atleast I can't get back from a midnight showing). I'll go and see it first thing friday morning, although in 2D. I just need to finish reading the books again now...

If you want Expensive go to Imax and pay for Gallery seats, then your into the £20+ for one ticket.

The first books where made for pre-teens / very early teens but as the books progress so does the maturity of the books, in the later books there is torture, murder, relationships and sacrifice. It isn't really something written for children, after book 4 it turns into quite a dark story.

The first books where released 1997 and the last 2007, sadly due to the films being 4 years behind the books they've always been a bit childish for me, but part one of deathly hallows was surprisingly good.

But unless you read the books first as an adult you wont enjoy the first 5 movies.

I'm working away for 3 days a week at the moment and have invested in the Cineworld Unlimited card - £15 a month, no fixed length contract. The standard cost of a film is around £9. In the last few weeks I've seen X Men, Green Lantern, Hangover 2 and Transformers 3. Before I bought the card I probably went to the cinema once a year (my 2 year old son had put a stop to my regular visits). I can't believe how much the prices have risen in the last few years. I bought Imax tickets for me and my wife to see Sucker Punch and didn't get much change from £30. At that price no wonder I was only going once a year!

Ah, missed this one.

If you wanted to lie and troll this thread, you should at least make it believable mate. The world premier was only a couple of days ago, and it is not available pirated yet (the potter films are notorious for the pirates not being able to get their hands on them before dvd release).

If you book online you have to pay the booking fee, £3.85 I think. Takes the mick but as the odeon is the only cinema in Lincoln they have no other firms to compete with so charge what they like. I can drive 15 miles to newark and go watch a film on a wednesday night for £3.80 or a 3D one for £6.70!
