Thrifty Thursday – Kids AM at Vue Cinemas

What a treat my daughter and I had this past Saturday. The Vue Cinema at Piccadilly Circus had a little Princess Do. They treated some bloggers from the newly formed MyFamilyClub Bloggers Network to a screening of ‘Barbie: The Pearl Princess’. There were yummy cake pops (um, we might have had three), popcorn, fruit shoots and each child got a good quality wand and tiara (I’ve had enough of cheap and tatty tiaras). There was also one lady doing face painting and another doing temporary tattoos and balloon animals.

Moozles, who is almost six years old, said we were so lucky. And afterwards, when I took her out for lunch, she said that the people in the restaurant must feel ashamed that they didn’t have on princess dresses or have their faces painted. I didn’t want to disagree with her.

I had never heard of the Vue Cinemas’ KIDS AM screenings before Saturday. I didn’t realise that Vue showed kids films on Saturday and Sunday mornings (and school holiday mornings) for only £1.75. What a bargain. Moozles loves going to the cinema. But we only take her every few months as it can be so expensive. We will definitely be going again. I see that the ‘Moshi Monster’ movie is out soon. She will love that. Hopefully Moozles isn’t disappointed in the lack of cake pops and face painting on offer.
On a side note, I have watched a few Barbie movies with Moozles, and normally they are a bit boring. ‘Barbie: The Pearl Princess’ was actually good and I may or may not have shed a few tears at the end.This event was free, but the opinions expressed are completely my own.
