Cinema attendances

So UK cinema attendances are, according to BBC News, down by 5%. Now does that really surprise anyone with the ridiculous prices that cinemas charge - my two local cinemas charge £6.75 (Empire at The Gate) and £6.35 (Odeon at the Metro Centre).

So for two people going to the cinema you're talking over £12. Most online DVD rental sites offer unlimited rentals per month for about £10.

Okay, I've got to wait a couple of months for the latest releases to come out but for the amount of money that you're going to save that surely is a small price to pay? And watching a DVD at least you don't have the idiot sat behind you who never shuts up talking all the way through the film.
