I agree, £9.70?! No thankyou.
Id rather break the law
although, if its a movie which is going to be enjoyed on the big screen eg action movies, I do tend to go, long live student discount -.-

Going to the cinema and watching something on your computer is a totally different experience. Plenty of people still go to the cinema for a day out etc.
Sometimes it's difficult to download/watch specific films online, which are occasionally screened in independent cinemas. I'm a stickler for quality too. I'd rather pay a couple of quid to watch a film in the cinema and see what the directors etc. intended, than miss out on all that on some crappy rip.
Also, with the internet there is a lot of 'tailored advertising,' so to speak. We click on the related links put there depending upon our browsing history. It gives us what we already know or like. I suppose a lot of this can be applied to real life too and I'm probably not getting my point across... Whatevvver.
But I agree, the prices are pretty steep in most places, and I'm pretty stingy.

I love the cinema!!! Especially the small independent ones because they have lovely cheap prices for teenagers, thus making my life easier, and cheaper. It feels so sad and lonely sitting in a room watching it on the computer. Went to the cinema today to see The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, everyone was laughing, it was lovely. Only reason the cinema is expensive if you're a student is if you buy food. So don't buy food. Just starve/dehydrate through the film, or sneak your own in. And Orange Wednesdays are my best friend. Went to see the Hunger Games on Wednesday with my friend and it cost us less than £3 for it, since it was 2 for 1 so we just halved the price of one ticket. With student discounts and stuff it should only cost about £3-4 really. Of course, if you're an adult then it's much more expensive, and if it's a family then it must be extortionate.
