Have your say: A night out at the cinema could cost twice as much

Published: 31 Jan 2013 12:306 comments

ODEON Bracknell is planning to renegotiate parking costs at The Peel Centre following threats that customers will boycott the cinema.

Fed up: Alan Polhill and Owen Basara-Hamilton, from Hanworth, are among those Odeon customers who are threatening not to return to the cinema after difficulties parking for car parking.

This comes after the new system - introduced by car park owner Land Securities on January 7 - has forced motorists to stump up more £10 if they stay for more than four hours, even if they are using The Point's leisure facilities.

Previously parking was free if using Odeon or Hollywood Bowl, however Land Securities insist this was down to a "glitch in the system".

NB: The car park is neither owned or run by Odeon.

Have you been hit by the four hour £10 charge - more than a cinema ticket (£9.30) or two bowling games (£10.50)?

Do you think it's a reasonable cost for four hours or are you planning to boycott The Point as a result?

What other issues have you faced at The Peel Centre car park or do you think the new system is an innovative change?
