Bethan & Harri’s first cinema trip

I took Bethan and Harri to the cinema today, for the first time. We went to see Kung Fu Panda 2. It was something that Bethan wanted to see, more than Harri, but Harri came along too under the promise that we’d go to see Cars 2 when it’s out.

What I saw of the film was good, but Harri started to wail about half an hour from the end. I had to remove him from the cinema, but still had to work out how to keep Bethan happy (after all, she was the one who really wanted to see the film). It ended up with Harri and I sitting on the floor in the corridor (still inside the screen room) and Bethan sat on the nearest seat to the corridor. Then when the film ended I went back down the corridor to pick Bethan up. She was out of my sight for the last 20 minutes or so, which obviously was a concern, but I figured there was only one way out of the room and I was sat in it.

Anyway, it all worked out in the end. Bethan told me it was a “proper film,” though I don’t really know how it ended.

On a side note, just how bloody expensive is it to go to the cinema these days?! 1 adult, 2 children: £19. Two small portions of popcorn? That’ll be another £7! TWENTY SIX QUID TO GO TO THE FUCKING CINEMA!

In my day…
