Day 273 - Films


One of the best things we have done this year is to use our Unlimited cinema passes as often as we possibly can. 

I love the cinema, absolutely love it, even the adverts and trailers, they just make my night, and this from a girl who records all the television programmes that I want to watch if they are on commercial channels so I can whiz through the adverts.

Last Friday we went to see Bridget Jones's Baby, the third in the Bridget Jones films and we loved it.  It helped that the cinema was packed with groups of women and girls all determined to have a good night out.  There were lots of laughs, both incidental and staged, and for anyone that has ever been a female 'singleton' for any length of time lots of familiar scenarios.

For those of you that are interested we gave it a joint 8/10.

Our Unlimited cards although a big outlay at the end of last year ... they were our Christmas presents to ourselves ... have proved to be our one of our best purchases ever, and as you can see from the list of films on the sidebar that we have seen up to now, we have had far more than our money's worth already.  The next film we have booked tickets for is 'The Girl on the Train', as I haven't read the book I have no idea of the twist to the story so I am really looking forward to it.

Today is a No Spend Day

  1. Hi Sue do you mind me asking how much does an unlimited pass cost ?

    1. Ours cost us £202 each, but I think they have gone up slightly now. We have seen 53 films up to now, with 2.5 months left of our passes, which works out at around £3.80 a film, and this will go down as we go and watch more films. The average ticket price at our local cinema is £9, so they have saved us money, kept us entertained all year, and stopped us eating out at weekends which used to be our entertainment of choice AND meant we have seen some brilliant films as soon as they were released.

    2. Very reasonable, even though we are all trying to live cheaply and by mortgage free, we all need a treat x

  2. I love a trip to the cinema too. Every year we say we'll go more often, get off to a good start then it tails off. I do want to see The Girl on the Train, like you I don't know much about the story but I like Emily Blunt and Allison Janney. Luckily our cinema only charges £4.

    1. £4 is a brilliant price, if ours only charged that we wouldn't need a card :-)

  3. We don't have a cinema nearby which means a drive and parking! We are thinking of combining ot with shopping now and again to make it easier.

    1. Our cinema is around eight miles away, we usually combine it with either shopping or refuelling one of the vehicles as the cinema is opposite Tesco. There is free parking directly outside the cinema :-)
