A picnic in the cheap seats

If you are a fan of the 1940’s I can’t recommend this film enough.  The clothes and the interiors are fantastic and added to a real feel good story it makes for a lovely trip to the cinema.

And who would have thought that my vintage frock would be making an appearance in the opening scene

Now if you are a canny cinema goer like me you’ll know how to get two for one tickets. We usually end up
paying £6.50 for the two of us.

Buy yourself a one day travel insurance for less than £2 with compare the meerkat and you’ll get half price cinema tickets for a year.  

Now don’t tell anyone but we buy the cheap seats
then sit in the posh ones once we are in there.  We’ve not been thrown out yet and we are into our second year now.  We also take a picnic in with us.  So you see we can stretch
the pension out quite far.  Well I would if I got one, but that’s another story.  Roll on 66 only four years to go then I can have a bus pass to add to the free prescriptions and eye tests.

If this link works it’s a trailer of 
Goodbye Christopher Robin


  1. It is on my film list.. cannot wait.. x

  2. I can't wait to see it! It is absolutely my cup of tea. Love your polka dot dress and this lovely cardigan!

    Here in the US all seats cost the same, and many theaters recently remodeled into smaller rooms with super comfy recliners instead of usual seats. Oh and the very first showtime is always cheaper, usually either AM or early PM hours.

  3. I'd love to see the film, Lynn. Did you wear the frock to go to the cinema? It's lovely, and I love how you combined it with that cardigan and brooch. Like in the US, all seats cost the same here. Oh, and we do not even get free bus passes anymore. You do get a reduction when you're 60 plus, though. xxx

  4. What are the chances of your frock turning up in a film?!
    I had no idea that you could buy one day travel insurance and the two for one deal would be valid. Clever you!
    Walsall's new town centre cinema is a fiver before midday but there's rarely anything that appeals.
    All the seats cost the same here, too. xxx

  5. How wonderful....a post with vintage style, money saving tips and film reviews!
