How to get cheap cinema tickets in London...

Jun 2, 2015 by

When did going to the pictures become so expensive? And how can some bits of popped corn covered with a bit of sugar cost £6? And if you drink that massive cup of cola there’s no way you’ll be able to sit through a 3 hour film.

If you have your own 3d glasses then also taken them, clearly only when going to watch a 3D film.  Here are the best deals I have found in London so you can get more films for your money.   BARBICAN   A cinema based in the Barbican centre in East London. Every Monday you can get tickets for £6. If you...

Blog by Shaeran Thomas Despite having lived in London for over 13 years now, I love the fact that I am still learning new and interesting facts about this beautiful city every day.
