Southend have put their prices up in time for Star Wars. A peak 3d and premium seat is a hilarious £19.25. Absolute shambles and West End of London prices.

We definitely need a competitor to come in so that it drives the prices down.

The only competition we've got that theoretically should help drive prices down is independent cinemas, but not enough people visit them (and they can only hold so many). Us in Essex for instance have the Canvey cinema where its £4.50 a film weekdays and £5 at weekends.

We have a local-ish Vue ( which used to be £5 a ticket but not anymore ) and a Cineworld but both of these charge similar prices.

We are trying out a local independent cinema - fully licensed throughout, reclining seats with tables. Prices are about £4 cheaper than Odeon.

Yours sounds nice, ours was a bit tatty but they seem to be doing that up now, reupholstering the chairs (also there's a screen with a patch on it, and another one you could hear trickling water, so that's 2 good screens left of the 4).
