I like going to the Cinema but prices seem to be getting to the point where it is almost taking the mickey! My nearest Showcase cinema (near Caerphilly) now charges £8 for a standard ticket and over a tenner for a 3D film. Add to that the ridiculous markups charged for food and drink (though I always take my own) and a family night out can be a rather pricey event.
As luck would have it, my local high street (Blackwood) has a new cinema which has recently opened last year. It was the cinema I used as a child before it was turned into a Bingo Hall many years ago.
It was recently purchased by an English company called Picturedrome Cinemas of Bognor Regis and has been converted back into a 4 screen Cinema with a total capacity of 800 seats and at a cost of around £750,000..... The reason for the post is this -
The big surprise is the cost of a cinema ticket...Which is £2.50 mon - fri and £3.50 sat- sun
These prices also include any 3D films and the cinema shows all the current releases.
This level of pricing certainly puts the big cinema companies to shame!
