$10 tickets every day
I used to buy our cinema tickets online to save a few dollars. However a few weeks ago, I discovered that the Reading Cinema at West Lakes had tickets available for $10 every day of the week. This means no restricting yourself to Tuesday, or rushing to get into a session before 5 pm Saturday night!
Reading Cinema West Lakes is situated in West Lakes Shopping Centre, just above the food court. It is a convenient one-stop place to eat, shop and see a film. Some cinemas at Reading Cinema West Lakes have closed off seating areas which appear to be for disabled people with hearing needs and glassed off areas which may be for special bookings, or alternately for parents with young children. If you climb past these, you will reach the standard seating. This is comfortable and provides a good view of the large screen. The sound is good quality.
This year we have attended the West Lakes cinema to view Deadpool (a quirky and dark offering with a romance theme that was out around Valentine's day 2016) and Warcraft: the beginning. (Warcraft: the beginning was extremely satisfying as I enjoy fantasy and have played a variety of computer games.)
There were a number of children's movies in the cinema when we went to Warcraft: the beginning. These movies included Finding Dory and The Angry Birds Movie. The cinema was extremely busy as families lined up to take advantage of the cheap tickets and suitable films.
Movies currently showing on the first of July 2016 include: The BFG, Ice Age:collision course and Independence Day: resurgence. Movies coming to the cinema soon include: Ghostbusters, The Legend of Tarzan and Star Trek: beyond.
The $10 tickets do not cover Angelika Gold Class Cinema or 3D movies. We went to the Angelika Cinema once, we had a huge arm-chair each and there was a bar in the waiting area. This section of the cinema also has it's private toilets. As the Angelika is licensed, patrons must be 18 years of age or accompanied by an adult. It is probably worth the extra money for people who enjoy luxury.
