The Big Screen

DS had his first ever cinematic experience this lunch time and I had my first as a parent.
~ there's no way to make a cinema in the rain look photogenic ~
We took a picnic lunch ...
... but still spent a fortune. 
What we spent:
Bus fare: £2.60 return.
Tickets: £17.35 ~ that's £9.15 for me, £6.70 for DS and £1.50 booking fee.
Chocolate buttons: £2.90!!!  Absolutely daylight robbery!  When the guy behind the till asked if that was all, I told him I couldn't afford anything else!
Total: £22.85
In case you were wondering, we saw The Smurfs.

It's true, it's so expensive, isn't it? We don't do it often - can't afford to! Hope you both enjoyed the film xx

I reckon a visit to the cinema is one of the most expensive trips, these days! Hope you both enjoyed it!

Blimey that's expensive. Hope DN had a good time anyway. Did you enjoy the Smurfs???

Was it good - D wants to go next week - she saw Cars II today and enjoyed that. By the way she's 14 not really sure she is going to see the right films :0)

Ahhh how lovely though- did you enjoy the Smurfs? I remember them first time round!

Amy said...

Mine have only been twice - it's expensive here too! How did he find the experience? The younger one gets quite fidgety over here, the older one thinks it is fantastic!

Pricey, but you always remember your first trip to the cinema I think. I saw the Apple Dumpling Gang and I've never forgotten it!
