Because, let's face it, with some cinemas now charging $20 a ticket and then the general cost of taking a family to the cinema the whole experience is getting priced right out of the average person's pay packet.
I can certainly see from the movies offered that there are some great options for everyone. Click here. Including the latest family movies, chick flicks and films for those who prefer more rounds of gunshots than volleys of words.

Ticketbounty offers movie tickets sometimes as low as $5 and up to $15 but nowhere near the $20 some cinemas are trying to impose.
They find empty cinema seats all around Australia so you can watch movies the way you like to watch them– on comfortable seats and in front of the big screen.
The cinemas win as well as the seats would have been empty in any case and getting people to see good movies and tell their friends about them is always going to be the best kind of advertising. (This system also works for the site On the House which has cheap theatre tickets plus a few cinema tickets available as well.)
Ticketbounty will also soon be offering candy bar deals as well. I will post an article when this happens.
At the moment they also have a special where they are offering a $5 refund on their already cheap prices when you first use their service. I have downloaded the voucher for use at a future date. As they certainly have a great selection of films.
While at present they are only sourcing limited cinemas around Australia, let's hope that if people go to them in droves they will be able to get us cheaper tickets to many more cinemas.
Plus the cinemas they are already in such as Nova, Cameo in Belgrave which also has a summer outside cinema, Classic Cinemas, in Elsternwick, Majestic Cinemas Port Macquarie, Singleton, Nambucca Heads and Picture Show Man Merimbula, do show some great films already.
It is as simple as buying a ticket online. You then print it out and you take it to the cinema with you. The cinema redeems the voucher for the ticket.
There is a processing fee which at present is $1 per ticket which seems quite reasonable.
I suggest you check them out. Movie goers need to get the message out there that the price the cinemas are charging is far to high.
Waverley cinemas at Pinewood shopping Centre, in Blackburn Rd Mt Waverley is also close to the Monaco Freeway in Melbourne Victoria. There they have 4 cinemas. It's disabled friendly. As a member you get the 5th movie free. Seniors are catered for as well as students and con card holders.
Cost? Fantastic! Mostly all movies are $6 with lots of time choices as days. Then other times the cost can be $8 and $10. So these are the 3 prices all the time. Get a heap of friends together and ask them for a price. They are a very friendly team. Just ring them up find them online too. No booking on line there but I'm sure you could. Just make sure that when you book to ring you get there 15 mind earlier.
I'm an avid movie goes there. The best price around!
Waverley Cinema is close to the Monash Freeway not " Monaco" moviegoers who don't know the area may be confused. We have been going there for years
at least once a fortnight.The free 5th movie is for Seniors only. If you subscribe to get their email every week you will be pleasantly surprised how many times
a day the films are on, the most expensive tickets are $10.Lots of great restaurants close by so you can afford to go out for dinner and see a movie. I remember when it first opened and we are glad that it is still there all these years later. Only vanilla choctops available but they are home made and delicious. Julia from Dingley Village
