As one of the most commonly shared pastimes, taking a trip to the cinema is something which the vast majority of us do on a fairly regular basis. With new releases covering all genres constantly hitting the big screen, choosing which film to watch is often the biggest consideration we have to make – but what else should filmgoers be aware of?
Know your cinema
Naturally, the first thing you must do is decide where you are going to see the latest release. Odeon’s Liverpool cinema is a great option for those in the local area and provides everything you need.
For those with access to multiple venues, it may be worth considering factors such as ticket prices and services when making your decision. Many cinemas now offer special offers on certain showings and there are plenty of other national deals which can often be found for cinema trips.
In terms of services, a number of cinemas boast on-site bars and arcades or games rooms which are designed to transform a simple trip to the pictures into a full fun day out for individuals of all ages.
Know your film
Alongside the above considerations, you will obviously have to select an appropriate film. Depending on whom you intend to visit the cinema with and what your personal preferences are, this could be the biggest decision you have to make.
The easiest way to make your selection is to take a look at ODEON cinema listings for screenings at your local venue. This will tell you when films are being screened and also provide a brief summary of each film plot. The age rating for screenings is also provided and you can even check listings online so that you’re prepared for your trip.
Lastly, remember to look at the exact time of your chosen viewing and turn up in good time. Whilst there may be trailers and adverts to view before the film actually begins, arriving late may mean you are not permitted to enter and means you might not discover the other great films preparing for release.
Know your group
Lastly, any trip to the cinema must be appropriate for the people you are going with. This means that you need to know the personal preferences of your group and ensure that an age appropriate film is selected. Always consider the genre too and remember that not everyone will be a fan of the same film as you.
Lastly, consider what type of film watcher you and your party are before making a trip together. Talking during a film is never advisable and those making too much noise could be asked to leave the venue altogether. If you are someone who favours absolute silence during a film, take this into consideration when choosing your seats and try to position yourself somewhere relatively isolated.
That way you can watch the film in the way which is best for you without making your associates uncomfortable or nervous about any inadvertent noises they might make.
