Hi,

Okay I don't know if, strictly speaking, this belongs to the 'advice' forum as such but I guess im asking for advice... at least if anyone knows the answer to this... basically I passed my driving test (finally!) last year, I have my own car now and I'd always wanted to use it to give me the choice to drive to the nearby cinema so I can go see some movies I want to see (I always used to go with my family in their cars, the public transport was too restricted I felt to use that), so anyway I decided im going to finally do it this Sunday, im going to book a ticket online and drive myself to my local cinema in Falkirk to go see a comedy I want to see

Anyway I'm trying to figure out how much its going to cost for the ticket and a drink, I found out the ticket price but I'm not sure how much the drink will cost and as there are lots of Cineworld cinemas in the UK I thought perhaps someone who might have been recently would know? I'd only want a small size drink. I know they charge quite alot but when ive gone with my parents etc. they always buy larger ones that we all share which costs alot, so ive no idea how much the small size drinks are lol im guessing it'll cost around 2(?) I'd like to have a rough idea how much money to have on me, thats all really... the Cineworld site doesn't seem to state any food or drink prices (they maybe vary per venue(?) I just want a rough price though, dont worry), so I thought I could ask here, since its free to ask and maybe someone knows *shrug* so I need someone to give me 'advice' on the price of a small soft drink at a Cineworld cinema please thanks in advance for any help (and if it does state the prices on the Cineworld website and I didn't notice, then I apologise, I guess I need better glasses LOL)

I'm not sure myself but there was a thread about the prices of food and drinks in cinemas in General Discussion a few days ago - You should find it in there

I think my local one charges around 2.80 for a small drink.
Personally I'm a cheapskate and I always take juice with me when I go to the pics

I will have to get some extra change on Saturday though... yadda yadda lol

2.20 isn't too bad... do you know if the prices are the same nationwide or vary by venue?, I could have sworn at least the larger soft drinks being advertised for more like 3.50 at the Falkirk one we go to... just curious; thanks for the info.!

I would do that too to be honest lol but I'm pretty sure they don't allow you to do that in this chain of cinemas, or in most really. There was a story about this on Watchdog a while ago, people had complained about being forced to leave the cinema when an usher or whoever spotted them eating or drinking something they hadn't bought from the cinema, while watching a movie *shrug* and your not allowed to bring in large bags and stuff I think too, maybe(?) im not sure about that one though...

I've often taken a bag and food and stuff to the Odeon in Bristol.. I've eaten full Subway sandwiches in there before now, so it should be alright I reckon.

not sure if the prices are regional or not, I should guess they would be standard everywhere except London. That's how it is with ticket prices anyway.

Edinburgh is a bit far away for me really, I wouldn't be too confident to drive right through to central Edinburgh and back by myself yet (im still working on my confidence as a lone driver)... I've been to the Cineworld Falkirk one a few times though (last time being in April) and its always been ok, just a bit quiet with only one attendant checking tickets but I've not had any problems with it - has it got much worse since or something?.

The only thing is the movie I wanna see is Rush Hour 3 and im a bit suspicious/worried it might be full of neds that talk/shout/heckle through it, which would put me off alot... and im not good at addressing people like that, put it that way

I have actually said something to the staff before

Once I was charged about 3 for some Revels to which my reaction was "How do u sleep at night!?"

Got told off by my gf....

And the 3 water thing I mentioned involved me telling the fella behind the counter I shoulve just drunk my own piss rather than buy their water.....

Again, I think another icon would work well here.....

Yeah, because the poor shmuck behind the kiosk is setting the prices and the money is going into his back pocket...oh no, WAIT! He's getting 4.95 an hour to deal with snide comments from people like YOU.

I hate customers.

I can imagine it isn't the greatest of jobs... neither is mine though either (working until 9pm at night twice a week during term time in a college library being the only member of staff with lots of students swearing all the time and misbehaving, while paying no attention when I try to tell them off *sigh* yeah, fun stuff(!)) so I feel like I should be able to use some of my salary to do stuff I enjoy like go to the cinema and see a good movie

I like nice customers who behave and say please and thank you.

I don't like scals, little kids and people who complain about the prices.

Do they still have those free postcards advertising movies and stuff? I remember when we used to go through to Edinburgh to the cinema in Wester Hailes I think it was, they used to have a display unit thing with loads of those, I forget to check for those, I'd always take a bundle home... I think last time I was at the cinema there, they had a new free magazine as well, ill have to remember to have a look for those on Sunday I guess lol

No .... the odeon is shite as well.

Dominion in Edinburgh is the daddy as far a cinema in Edinburgh goes.

The top-of-the-range seats in cinema one cannot be beaten. It's not cheap but then, you gets what you pays for.

The Cameo still gets points for allowing you to take your pint in. Heading there in a couple of hours in fact for a late night festival showing of Shrooms.
