As it’s the summer holidays and we haven’t been to the cinema for absolutely ages, we decided to go to the local multiplex for some film watching this morning.
In fact, it was the 6 year old’s first ever time at the cinema. I haven’t dared take him before as it’d be akin to taking a wriggling worm to the cinema and listening to it saying “is it nearly finished yet? Is it nearly finished yet?!” on loop.
He sat lovely though. Phew.
Although on paying, I suddenly remembered exactly WHY we don’t go to the cinema much any more.
At £7.30 an adult ticket, and over £6 for EACH child, you’ve spent a small fortune just on your ticket.
That’s before you’ve paid for the bag of sweets for each child.
(Which on getting home and visiting the local shop, noticed the exact same bag of sweets for a £1 which was £3 in the cinema!)
How do they get away with literally tripling the price?!
Anyway, after I’d picked myself up off the floor we really enjoyed the film.
Yes, we went to see Despicable Me 2. If you’ve got small kids, they’ll love it.
We’ve been doing minion impressions all day.
“Bee doh, bee doh!”
“Bottom! Hur, hur!”
We’ll go to the cinema again, definitely. I might need to increase the mortgage to raise the money to go again any time soon though!
