You never done The Tyneside cinema? If you're south of the river then it's probably closer than Whitley Bay.

Amazing building, nice bar, usually only attended by grown-ups. I saw Rogue One there and it was great.

Obviously not the destination if you only care about screen size, but it does well on all other factors.


Never heard of it :fp: I'll look into it. My local is Cineworld, about 5 minutes away.


It's just off Grey Street. Honestly worth a look if you want a grown-up cinema experience. Obviously no shortage of places to eat around there too.

I loved that cinema when I was at uni, think we went there every weekend for about 2 months watching Reservoir Dogs.

Ready Player One trailer



I've heard mixed things about the book, mostly calling it empty nostalgia with no point or weight, but damn if that trailer didn't have some great moments. Then again, these were mainly because of familiar things turning up in odd places. Time will tell if this ends up being more than just novelty.

This is an amazing marketing idea.

Kingsman is one of the films of recent years that I never saw in cinema, it flew under my radar like Dredd and Edge of Tomorrow. Hyped for the sequel.

Went to see Baby Driver at the weekend, loved it, didn't know it was going to be musical throughout, from the trailer I thought it was just for the driving scenes. Was a nice twist and worked really well.

But i was surprised at how many people were actually buying food from the cinema (as people were discussing the a page back), it was in Camden so plenty of shops to buy food/drinks nearby, but people seemed happy to fork over £5 for popcorn and a bag of sweets... I just don't understand why when the tickets are £11 minimum (damn London).

Also lol at getting a 2 for £12 voucher when buying my tickets, then seeing it excludes Dunkirk, tight bastards. Will probably see Planet of the Apes then. Save Dunkirk for the IMAX.

My local Odeon has a Costa in it so I just usually get food from there instead of paying for the extortionate prices at the food court bit. The Belgian chocolate brownies :datass:

I've been to the cinema a lot over the past month and noticed that the prices differ a lot depending on the film, day and time. Also if you go to Vue you can get free popcorn by completing their online survey. Just Google free popcorn Vue. You are supposed to buy a drink with it but 4 out of the 5 times I haven't been asked to. You can complete the survey as many times as you want. With the same email address and get a different voucher each time. As I say I've done this 5 times in the 6 ish weeks.

I usually go to Cineworld, but they just jacked up there prices and charged me £5 for a year of their "online booking discount", which was normally free.

I've discovered Odeon Wester Hailes are cheap as chips. £5.50 a ticket, any movie any time. Plus I can get 2 for 1 tickets with the Merkat Movies app.

London?

Whenever I'm getting the discount Odeon codes through my work you have to select whether it's for inside or outside of the M25 :lol:

Indeed. There's a London tax and a blockbuster tax Odeon like to add-on.

Vue - £6.99
Odeon - £5
Cineworld - £6.10

Vue is a bit more expensive, but they have the best seats which all are recliners seats with no charge at all. Also, I have a CEA Card* which I can get one ticket for £0 so we can pay half for one ticket which is good thing for me, my family or friends who can share with me. :datass:

Cineworld is very good and I don't know why I always like their inside layout.

Odeon is worst of all and their seats are so cramp! It's difficult to watch if it's a full packed and the people's heads are always in the way in front of me. :x

*CEA Card. For those who is wondering what it is and it's a discount card for the people with disabilities - https://www.ceacard.co.uk/
