    Default Cost of going to the Odeon - rant warning

    Was in Bath recently. Took the kids to see Farmageddon, quite funny. Although the smile was wiped off my face having to part with £55 for the four us. 55 quid?!! These guys are taking the pi$$!! That was apparently a special price including some popcorn, not actually that much.

    Looked up the cost for the four of us here in Munich, €24.

    It does not surprise me fewer and fewer folks are going to the cinema in the UK. Total pants down. That business is shurly fast going down the tubes.

    Apart from the price, me ears were left bleeding. Has the population gone deaf? Thought it was just me but both kids were left with sore ears at the end. You'd think you were in an old folks home the level of the volume.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    They applied a twat surcharge to discourage you. When that didn't work, they cranked up the volume to drown out your whinging.

    Yes, it's not quite The Beaunash but I believe The Little Theatre is still going strong. Probably not showing stuff your kids would want (or be allowed) to see.

    The UK is booming and people have lots of disposable income. Unlike Munich.

    Are CUK posters allowed to see films not involving Gladiators?

    It cost me £4.99 when I went to see it in Swansea last week.

    When the fun stops, STOP.

    £4.99 for the odeon - round here it’s £3 as it’s a crap cinema they keep open as it covers costs just bout.

    The local Vue is £5 a show and I think one price drives the other without the odeon we probably would be paying £8 a ticket.

    The new Odeon in Durham (being posher and without the competition) is £11.25 a ticket - because they can charge that amount.

    £55? It'd have cost about £75 in Basel.
