“ Even more fun at the cinema for kids. „
A trip to the cinema is a great treat yet one that really could bankrupt you when for two adults and two children you are going to have to shell out £25.80 plus of course popcorn because no matter what popcorn and cinema go hand in hand!
So we have put trips to the cinema on the back burner and we visit the cinema on a Saturday Morning which is Cineworlds kids club.
What is Kids Club?
Well this is designed as a family friendly showing and it shows films that are just about to be released on DVD or have recently been released for example this week it is Kong Fu Panda 2 and Gulliver's Travels.
Time and Cost
Kids club is at 10 am on a Saturday morning and this costs just £1.00 per person not all cinemas offer kids club so it would be best to check on the website www.cineworld.co.uk 67 cinemas do show movies for juniors and some show both days of the weekend.
For a treat going to the cinema is right up there my girls love it and Saturday morning cinema is a brilliant way to do this without breaking the bank and if you are also a little naughty and smuggle your own refreshments in as well then not at all bad, but even with the very reasonable kids box which contains popcorn sweets and a small drink we can still go to the cinema for £10.00 not at all bad for an occasional treat.
I do recommended this but one bug bear I have is that another leading cinema chain also do a similar kids club but they run every day of the school holidays as well so if anyone from cineworld reads this please bring this in.
All kids love going to the pictures but these days at a fiver a time, a family trip to the pictures can end up costing the earth. There is a way to save money on this though if you have a Cineworld cinema near you. Every Saturday morning Cineworld show a choice of family movies and entry is only £1.00 per person, adults and kids alike.
They have a varied choice of family movies and they do rotate them so you have different ones to choose from each week. I took my two to see Madagascar 2 last weekend, the other choices were Hotel for Dogs, Alvin and the Chipmunks or Horton Hears a Who. There is usually a mix of older films and newer releases.
There is a kids club that takes place in one of the screens before the start of the films, even if your film is not being screened in the one where the Kids Club is you can still go and join in. Members of staff do a mini quiz and the kids can win small bags of sweets or little treats.
This is a really great way to spend time with the kids without having to shell out a fortune. Check out my blog for loads of other great money saving ideas..... http://sortyourfinancesout.blogspot.com/
