I see that Cinema Gold, Havelock North has decided to increase its senior age from 60 - 65 as it says "to be in line with other cimemas in NZ". In practice this means a price hike for non earners. Of course there are many of us who retired before 65, particularly women who retired at 60. That means of course that I and others like me will have to think twice before venturing out to see a film in future.

How much does it cost for a `senior' to go to the movies?
I only ever go on a Tuesday, which is our local cinema's `cheap' day.
Last time I went it cost $10 to get in (and bout $20 for the lollies)

Here, it's $9 for a senior on "normal" movie days, but on cheap Tuesdays the price for everyone across the board (seniors too) is $10.
Cinemagold is normally $15, and $13 for seniors. However our city library has a great selection of DVD movies for $3 a rental. We also belong to Fatso, the mail order movie rental service, and can recommend it: we pay the cheapest rate, $10 for two new movies per month. You can pay a lot more of course, for "unlimited" rentals, but our $10 gets us a huge choice of documentaries, classics, foreign movies and old/obscure titles as well as ordinary mainstream movies. You get your movie in a special envelope and when you have finished viewing, you send it back. Postage is free.
Being dedicated movie fans, between all of that, and whatever films on TV we haven't seen before, that's plenty, and within budget.
