Anyway back to me and my life :-) On Saturday I decided we should go to the cinema as a family to see the new Smurfs movie. As I haven't won tickets in ages I had to fork out my hard earned cash. The other curve ball is Dolly has reached paying age.
So armed with our own food and drinks (no signs or policies stating you can't). And our own 3D glasses to save $3, we went and paid for our tickets. When I was told the price my mouth dropped open. $58 for 2 adults and 1 child!!!! How can families afford going to the movies??? It's crazy expensive and a total rip off.
I was not impressed, but we had waited in line for 20 minutes and Dolly was super excited and I wasn't prepared to crush her excitement. However it would have been cheaper to purchase the DVD, a quality pizza and some drinks. I could have then resold the DVD at half price and really be ahead.
So I paid and allowed my daughter to have a special time with her Maman and Papa, but we will not be heading to the movies at that price again soon - that's for sure. If I went at that price on a regular basis, I can kiss my cutting back on work hours and early retirement goodbye.
What country / state do you live in? Is the cinema affordable where you live?
