Tax time headache?
Let us crunch the numbers

New cinemas in Tuggies

By Bananabanana 5 January 2010 25

I was very impressed with the new Limelight cinema in the Hyperdome. I went with my daughter to see Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Firstly, the tickets were only $9.90 for adults, so I could afford to buy a choc-top.

Secondly, when I went to the snack bar, they had thoughtfully listed the prices for the popcorn, drinks etc so I could decide what to get in the queue and not stand there stupidly enquiring about prices.

It is much better than the old cinema and much cheaper than Hoyts. The only problem they have is that no-one seems to have heard about them yet…

What’s Your opinion?

Slightly OT.

Recently received an account/invoice from Telstra for 17c. Not being a Telstra customer, this was a bit of a puzzler.

Turns out daught had, at the directions on their website, rung the Hoyts info line. First message was that to stay on line and hear the options cost $2000 (or whatever) per second, so she hung up immediately.

We receive NO accounts or service from Telsta. The cost of postage alone was about 3 times the amount invoiced. We are not required to pay the 17c until the next invoice they send us.

Hell is still very warm.

Post them a 20 cent coin with a letter expecting the 3 cents change.

Good on them for displaying prices of popcorn etc. It is so annoying having to ask at the other cinemas

My family went Tuesday and were all pleasantly surprised. To take 3 kids to the movies, and get drinks for $50 hey, that is affordable now.

You could have spent that $50 on a few dvds, had a family night in, watched 2 or 3 movies instead of 1, and you then own them if/when you ever want to watch them again. You also could have bought a bottle of coke for $2 for everyone instead of 3 bucks per person per cup too.

Being happy about movies at the cinema only costing $13 is like being happy that a service station is selling fuel for $1.15 instead of $1.30.

My family went Tuesday and were all pleasantly surprised. To take 3 kids to the movies, and get drinks for $50 hey, that is affordable now, not like other places. Must say that my daughter knew about the charge on the 3D glasses right from the start so it must have been somewhere. They did say that it was packed – well it is school holidays, and was ‘cheap Tuesday’, so was not too surprised.

Good to see that a business is trying to keep prices affordable for the general public. Well done, and keep up the good work.
