Who Thinks It Is Expensive Going To The Movies!
Because it was the school holidays we took Jack to the movies to see Cars 2 which he was really looking forward to seeing. We usually try to go to the movies on the Terrific Tuesdays when possible as its cheaper, last time we went to the movies was last school holidays and we took Jack to see The Dairy of a Wimpy Kid 2. The Last time was on a Tuesday the tickets were $11 each, yesterday being a Saturday tickets were adults $16.50 and children $13 each so in total $46 to see a movie. Kev and I love going to the movies but only to see things we really want to see, the rest we are happy to wait for them to be released onto DVD and get them from the library for free. I remember taking my older boys to the movies in the school holidays when they were younger . The cinema would often have early bird specials on the school holidays, so it would cost us $5 per ticket so $15 in total to see a movie and we always took our own snacks to save a few dollars. That was in 1998, boy things have changed a little. So the moral of the story is, try to go on a Tuesday if you want to save a few dollars ! Or if you want to save even more dollars rent the DVD or spend no dollars and get it from the library for free !
