frugal films: going to the cinema for less

Filed under: frugal — Tags: , — plonkee @ 9:44 pm

This last week, I’ve spent £16 on cinema tickets, and seen three films. I caught the new Transformers film at the weekend, in London and the tickets were £10. I saw two films at the local foreign language film club in the same evening, for a total of £6. The films were Spanish, and pretty recent and pretty good.

I’ve lived in this city for nearly 10 years and I had no idea there was a foreign language film club. It’s not very well advertised, and talking to a couple of regulars, it seems that they don’t get many people showing up. This makes me wonder what other kinds of frugal entertainment there might be that I hadn’t realised. Thing is, I’m not entirely sure what to look for, I know about museums and art galleries, but what other cheap or free entertainment could there be?

My experience with the film club suggests that a lot of these things aren’t all that well advertised and might need a little work to uncover. What kinds of frugal entertainment is there where you live? Maybe I can get some ideas that way. Let me know in the comments.
