    kids screenings @ odeon

    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
