Since it opened on July 31, the six-screen Savoy Cinema in Corby has been on my list of ‘things to do’.
So what better way to tick it off the list than with a visit with my kids!
I love going to the cinema but often find it can be quite pricey when going as a family.
However, Savoy’s Kids’ Club helps to ensure that your purse isn’t lightened too much by offering films at just £1.50 per ticket – whether you’re an adult or child.
The kids were keen to watch Home, a film about an alien race called the Boov who conquer Earth and relocate the planet’s human population – except for a little girl named Tip, who’s managed to hide from them.
It follows her adventures with a fugitive Boov called Oh and the arrival of Gorg – the Boov’s enemy.
So, when this was showing up on the schedule at the Savoy, tickets were promptly booked!
You can order tickets online and collect them from the ticket machines (to the left when you enter the Savoy).
No film is complete without popcorn and prices start from £2.50 for a small box of sweet or salted.
There is also a pick and mix available with prices starting from £3 for a small tub.
As with any cinema, there are plenty of drinks available too.
The foyer here is very spacious with tables and chairs dotted around, should you arrive a bit too early for the start of your film.
Once we had our tickets and popcorn we headed to the queue to hand in our tickets.
As it was a Kids’ Club showing, we were advised that we didn’t have seat numbers booked but were instead able to choose where we wanted to sit.
Excitedly the kids chose our seats. There are a number of double-chairs – like mini sofas – which are perfect for snuggling up to watch a film, so keep an eye out for them if you want one!
It was a quirky addition that I’ve never seen in a cinema before.
The cinema itself has a lovely intimate feel and the seats are really comfy too.
We all really enjoyed our visit and we’ve already been back again.
For us, it’s in the perfect location and means that we no longer have to travel out of town to watch a film.
And I’m in no doubt that we’ll be back many more times over the years to come.
General tickets cost as follows:
Senior Citizen £5.75
Family (2 Adult + 2 Children or 1 Adult + 3 Children)
Savoy runs a Kids’ Club at the weekends and every day during the school holidays where you can go and watch a specified film chosen by them, for just £1.50 each – whether you are an adult or child.
On Saturday, September 19, and Sunday, September 20, Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast (U) is showing at 10.15am. You can book tickets at www.savoycorby.co.uk.
There is ample parking behind the cinema.
Prices start at 60p for up to two hours (just 20p from 6pm-midnight). Parking is free on Sundays.
Extend the fun
There’s plenty to do in the area after you’ve been to watch a film.
If you’ve enjoyed a Kids’ Club film, why not head to Corby East Midlands International Pool for a swim or wander along to the Boating Lake to feed the ducks.
If you’re hungry, then there is plenty of choice on offer on the same site as the cinema – from RBW, Nandos to Prezzo. You’ll be spoilt for choice!
