I often don't find the cinema overpriced, thanks to the Unlimited Card at Cineworld (where I pay monthly £16.40 and go as often as I want, which is usually between 5 and 8 times a month although it can be more during the busy summer and winter seasons.
I can find a screening disappointing though, if the film is rubbish or people or talking or using their phones throughout it (enslaved by the machine).
It can, however, be an amazing experience if it is a special screening like the ones listed. I went to see Led Zeppelin's Celebration Day at a cinema screening, and the audience sang along, and applauded each song. A Harbour Lights screening of Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan had an almost unicen yell of "Khaaan!!" during Kirk's now infamous scene. And recent screenings of Jurassic Park, Ghost and Back to the Future ahead of their Blu Ray releases were watched in silence by avid fans and those who were experiencing them for the first time.
You'll always get the odd inconsiderate person who can ruin things, but that's true of most places and events.

This is a great post, I wasn't aware of such a scheme, but I will be looking into it, sounds like a good deal. Nice one Keith!
