Cinema Food costs way too much, and tickets are never checked

Posted by on 13 December, 2008 at 11:16 pm

I went to the cinema today wiht the children and paid somewhere around £25 for the tickets. It was just after lunchtime and we were all peckish so we thought a few bags of popcorn and a drink each would tide us over. I normally don’t indulge in this kind of snack because I consider […]
