Family days out: A trip to the cinema

There is nothing better than on a weekend spending some quality time with your family, and great way to spend family time is by visiting your local cinema.

What you watch will depend entirely on the age of your children but there are usually plenty of films released that cater for a large age range. Disney films are always great as not only do they look exciting for the youngest members of your family, they also have great dialogue for the older members too!

Larger cinema chains tend to show films at numerous times through out the day especially on weekends, but it is always best to check cinema times before leaving home. Children’s films tend to only be shown earlier on in the day whereas older films don’t normally start being shown till the afternoon and evening.

Recently I took my family to our local cinema and it is only recently opened and I was amazed at how much space you have in the seats. It had great access for mums with babies in pushchairs and easy disabled access too. This was just a local cinema and I began to wonder just how grand the Leicester Square cinema is where the film premier’s are held!

Part of the experience is buying the treats you will have whilst watching the film and personally I don’t think you can beat sweet popcorn. We always buy the XL bucket and share it between us, there is never usually any left!

So why don’t you treat your family to a trip to the cinema this weekend and spend some quality time together.

    We love going to the cinema, the only problem we have these days is that you need a small mortgage to buy tickets and popcorn and so we can’t go all that often!

    We’ve started taking all the kids to the cimema in the last few months 0 K is old enough to enjoy some films and we started with Cars 2 which he loved. But I have to agree with you about the ticket prices – with three kids it mounts up. DH and I did the classic ‘dinner and a movie’ over Christmas, and including babysitting it came to £70 – which is why we don’t do that more often!
