I can't wait to take L. Hopefully this weekend with little Miss Molly.

I'm hoping to take C, partly as a belated birthday treat.
Might go this weekend, leave J with H and his 2 kids. If not, then next Wednesday, using the orange 2 for 1.
It looks quite funny.

I'm taking F and A this weekend. Iceland are doing an offer where if you spend £15 you get a voucher for a free child's cinema ticket to see Frozen. The only trouble is you can't pre-book the tickets. My 2 have never been to the cinema so I'm quite excited!

I always forget about Orange Wednesdays AK but then again I'd never be able to take L as I don't get home til gone 7pm. Maybe a trip over the holidays.
Frankie have they not? Oh they will love it! Do what I do to keep costs down and take snacks in with you rather than buy there. It costs a bomb otherwise!

We take our own pick n mix, from wilkos. I can't remember how much it is, but you can fill a cup for X amount, so much cheaper than at the cinema.

I'll probably take E over the holidays. She's been a few times now to the cinema and she sits really well. I might take my little cousin too as a treat because my aunty is taking E to the panto with them.

AK that's what we do. I also get a Boots meal deal for me so I'm not snacking on rubbish. Poundshop pack of Caprisun and we are sorted! It's ridiculous how much they charge at the counters.

Luckily, I have a couple of friends who work at our local cinema, so they give me free stuff, or if it's busy, they give me large drinks/popcorn, for the price of a small.
The prices are ridiculous.
Boots meal deal is a good idea, I may do that next time.
F (6) has never been one for sitting down and watching a film at home so figured she wouldn't at the cinema but decided at just turned 6 she needs to experience it! Fingers crossed the novelty of it all will keep her entertained! A who is 3 I think will sit fine. Definitely taking our own snacks, they are their own worst enemies at the cinema because if they didn't charge so much more people would buy their food!
2D or 3D? I was thinking 2D might be better for the girl's first experience?

The glasses are annoying for an adult, never mind for kids.
Last 3D film I saw, there were loads of crying kids, as they broke their glasses/dropped them/took them off and couldn't see properly. Nightmare!!

I was thinking the same AK. I wear glasses anyway so was wondering how that would work.
10/12/2013 at 12:35
I do too. I have to put the 3D glasses over my own glasses. They don't fit properly, and keep slipping down.
10/12/2013 at 13:01
Yep 2D all the way. I hate the damn things let alone trying to get L to wear them.
10/12/2013 at 14:09
2d for me too, I find watching 3D stuff I get a headache. Even if it's just a 20 minute show thing like they have in the theme parks in Florida, I get a bad head.

We went on Sunday to our local cinema (ie not multiplex) fully expecting it to be 2D. However it was 3D - first time L (4) had been to a 3D film. He was quite keen at first and kept trying to grab things in front of him, but the novelty soon wore off and for the last 20 mins of the film he was whining to go home. He usually LOVES the cinema, so I can only think it was the glasses he didn't like - although he did say it was a bit scary....H and I loved it though.

We've seen it too, and it was fab
