Despite the increasing number of people with HDTVs and surround sound in their own home, the cinema is still a popular option for families across the UK – Skyfall grossed £20.1 million on its opening weekend alone, and sparked a whole range of exciting extras including a theme song by singer-songwriter Adele, a wealth of merchandise and even the excellent retrospective look at Bond cars through the ages by Evans Halshaw.
There are plenty of ways you can find cheaper ways to go to the cinema, meaning that you can still head out on a date or with family, but without breaking the bank! Orange Wednesdays are a popular option for many, offering half price tickets once a week in exchange for topping up an Orange SIM card. This doesn’t always work out as the best value, but it’s worth bearing in mind if you plan on going a lot, or if you’re thinking of changing to a new phone provider. Another option is to look into independent and local cinemas. You might find that they’re a week or so behind on showings, but there’s always a great atmosphere, and some promise comfy seats and a great screen for half the price of the larger cinema chains!
