I am not paying £17.50 for one cinema ticket.
However, though I may not get round to seeing the Alice in Wonderland film, I did pay a visit to the Alice in Wonderland Pop-Up Shop.
I'd been to Claire's Accessories where they stocked a range of Alice gifts, and had bought myself a cute little White Rabbit brooch and a Cheshire Cat satchel.
When I'd paid, the girl gave me a key and told me to go to their pop-up Alice's shop for a special surprise.
So the next day, I trotted off to Maddox Street and this is what I found ...
Meemalee in Wonderland
My magical prize ...
The Alice in Wonderland Pop-Up Shop "Alice's" was a temporary installation set up by Claire's Accessories at 18 Maddox Street, London from 26th February - 5th March 2010. See wonderland.claires.com for more details.
(I'm feeling verbose today.)
I balk at paying £9 for a cinema ticket let alone £17.50! How on earth are they justifying that price???
@KirkK - I wanted to go to the big Odeon in Leicester Square (the one where all the premieres are held) and it charges minimum £15 - the extra £2.50 was a 3D glasses surcharge!
@Kavey - Isn't it cute? Re tickets - I don't know esp since DVDs and Blu-Rays are getting cheaper and cheaper.
@The Grubworm - Thank you xx
Were you excited?
MUST go to Claires to check out their Alice in Wonderland range - Disney store I visited had nothing at all. I am now slightly obsessed with the movie and NEED to buy things!
JONESTRUFAX - I bought that exact same 'magical prize' a few months ago as part of my Medallion Man outfit when I went to a 70s party. I'm not proud of that, just saying.
@I heart cupcakes - £12.50 each is more bearable, but I remember when a ticket to the flicks was £5, £2.50 matinees (though I guess that was 15 years ago!)
Yeah, it's really odd how the Disney store isn't stocking the range at all. I think maybe it's because this Alice is a bit more "adult", so the merchandising deal is with Claire's instead.
@Jones - It was properly trippy. Did you really buy that pendant? Brilliant - you know you can open it and stick pot pourri or something in it :)
Thank you - I was so lucky to find out about it!
