Another one on why cyber picketing is "underhand"
I do recall some people voicing their opposition to this earlier. Perhaps they'll be back to say what they think now.
I just don't think it's the same thing.
I don't care if people do it.
I see you have changed your mind.
Are you on crack?
Seems like some wins and some loses... I thought it had gone a bit quiet...
Proud to say that I didn't give the venue a single penny when the boycott was active.
Brixton Ritzy cinema workers call off five-year boycott
Anyone know the details of the decision? I hadn't realised it was up for review or appeal or whatever. And why does it apply to 2 people? What about the third person?
Now I can go to the Ritzy again decided to see if Ken Loach new film is on this weekend. The Saturday afternoon showing in screen three is an eye watering £14.50
I haven't been to Ritzy through out the boycott.
Been watching more films online. BBC/ C4 and also the Curzon site ( I get 12 films a month free as part of membership I have)
The cost of cinema going in some areas of London is high imo.
These prices at Ritzy are imo to high.
This cinema complex was built with government inner city grant.
Now its pricing is excluding locals like me from going often.
Sorry We Missed You
After my absence looked up Ritzy prices.
Mondays is cheaper but I'm working.
Me either (well PictureHouse). The Hackney one is near me but I don't even remember it's there these days as it's so off my radar. I haven't been for years.
Fridays from 17.00.
All day Saturday, Sunday & Bank Holidays.
Retired Member £11.50
Student Member £11.50
Oh and plus an extra £1.50 for online bookings because they're so expensive to set up or something.
I'm afraid I never pay for films or TV. Everything's on Pirate Bay.
Sadly barring the likes of Peckham Multiplex or Prince Charles, such prices are the norm across cinema chains in London. It is wrong and going to the movies has become unaffordable for many.
The Odeon in Streatham is only a tiny bit cheaper at £13.25, so it isn’t just Picturehouse doing it. Most chains offer half price days, or memberships for regulars that offer them better value for money, at least.
I went for the first time to the West Norwood cinema and was very impressed with the seats. Massive space and legroom. It was almost like business class vs economy on a plane.
i agree it’sa good cinema, I’ve been once on a Friday night, but I would have expected it to cost less than the Ritzy. Over fourteen quid is a lot, and I was on a date so paid for two tickets. And you’d need a mortgage to buy a few sweeties from them. I went down to the co op and picked up a bag of wine gums instead.
I’ve been once since the end of the boycott it and still felt guilty.
Yeah, I still can't bring myself to go back.
Yes they do. They pay the London Living Wage to all their staff, AND give their workers bonuses three times a year. So that's another reason to avoid the rip-off Ritzy and their shitty bosses.
Price of ticket at Peckhamplex £4.99
Staff get Living Wage
