Found 6th Apr 2009
weather is gonna be poor tomorrow so planning on taking kids to see bedtime stories at odeon, which is playing as part of the kids screening promotion (so its £2.50 a kid and per adult) ive never taken my kids before, i have a 5 and a 2 year old.... is it discounted for under 3's or does the ickle one have to pay 2.50 as well??

i know its not much but jus wanna know before i book.... talking of which tomorrows screening looks very empty..only one row booked...is it worth booking or can we just turn up...what would any of u guys suggest?

thanks

Just checked our Odeon and they are showing it too.

I have got the 1p bowling booked for Wednesday so gonna go see this after now too - so thanks for the heads up :-D

The booking fee adds on another £3 so I am just gonna turn up, I am sure it won't be so ram that they have to start turning people away just get there a bit early

Hope this helps

Think it was £2.65 booking fee I just saw when I was going through it.

It also wouldn't let me book the standard seats, only the £3.50 premier ones
I don't know how much it is usually, I know our Vue is £1.70

Don't be so sure, we went to one of these on a Sunday once and I just so happened to book the tickets, we got there 10 minutes early to pick up the tickets from the machine (walking past the HUGE queue) at which time a tannoy announced that the show we were seeing was now sold out so I'm glad I booked, and I too was annoyed at the time about the booking fee but after seeing the kids' disappointed faces in the queue I was glad that I'd paid it.

Hmmm... I guess because it was the premier seating then. I have just gone back on and its now letting me books standard seats and charging me £1.50 booking fee on 2 child tickets (so £6.50 in total)

Well I am glad that MB didn't take my advice then! I am sorry I was just talking from my own experience - the only ever one I went to that was packed was the free screening of Wall.E!
Think I may book, too dunno how come MB's only getting charged 25p though! :thumbsup:

went yesterday and was fab.. 2.50 and if ur lil un sits in ur lap its free for him.i payed for my 2 yr old but he preffered sitting in the aisle! we were nr the front actually as the good seats had all gone.so booking isnt a bad ide if u want a good seat but with kids i dont think it especially matters!

Unexpired

We went yesterday, too.

We got there just as the film was starting and I was worried that it may be already packed out but it wasn't at all.

And I quite enjoyed 'Bedtime Stories' :-D

Vue cinema's are £1.70 for each child (with free adult) - I have booked for 'the secret of moonacre' for sunday
