It seems that Stelios is at it again. Only this time, hitting the movie and coach businesses. I've just been browsing the Easy Cinema site. It's a new cinema concept and it looks like it will take off.
By removing staffing costs & an "earlier you book the cheaper it is" theme, Stelios hopes to fill more seats. You can't even buy overpriced popcorn - if you want to eat - you have to take your own. It seems that this is an entirely automated operation for the most part.
Looking on the site, I could currently book a ticket to see S.W.A.T for example. Current price £1.05. Which is a lot cheaper than the £5 that most places charge. Another point to note is that a lot of the showings appear to be filling up.
I must say I like the sound of this adea, lets hope that there are more of these cinemas rolled out. I usually only visit the cinema to see certain films, which you really need to see at the cinema. For example, The Matrix, Lord Of The Rings and many more. The rest of the time, I just either get the DVD or locate via other means. For older movies, I sometimes watch them on TV.
All I can say is, why didn't I think of this?
Or indeed, why didn't someone think of it earlier?
I know I'd be tempted to visit the cinema more often with prices like these available. Although at the moment there is only one Easy Cinema, which is located in Milton Keynes. We could do with more of them!
And whilst we are here, I should also note that London to Birmingham will only cost £1 soon as well!
I wonder if I will get anything for this free PR?Post ID: 241, posted by jase at 07:36 PM
