2. One of my favourite London places is the Prince Charles Cinema, just off Leicester Square, a second run film house that offers a place to catch up on titles once they'd finish the regular cinema rounds, at a bargain price - which is great because being a freelancer who's free on a weekday afternoon usually equals a lack of funds at that particular point in time.
So imagine my excitment when having scanned all the various cinema listing in Kelowna and noting a dearth of matinee performances, I finally found my way through to the Landmark 'Encore' Cinema in West Kelowna. This five screen theatre offers a second chance to see films that have left the bigger cinemas, at the knock down price of $4, with a selection of afternoon matinees available at $3. You can also take advantage of Toonie Thursdays, with all admissions $2 - bargain!
Giant popcorn and Diet Coke in hand, my husband and I settled down to spend the afternoon with Quentin Taratino's 'Django' - well worth the treck over to the Westside. If you haven't already seen it, I won't be giving anything away by telling you the scene with the 'white hood debate' amongst the Ku Klux Klan is possibly one of the funniest things I have seen in yonks. I laughed til I cryed.
