Going to the movies and asking a friend
What will I learn from the lesson going to the movies and asking a friend?
During this English lesson you learn how to book tickets to watch a movie and how to ask friends if they want to come with you.
Going to the theatre and choosing a movie
Before you go to the movies you will need to find out what is on at the movies and what time the movie is showing. This can be done by checking the internet, just type the town or city you are staying or if you have the post code use that. All the theatres that are in that area will display choose one and all the movies with times for that week will be displayed.
When you have chosen the movie you want to see, you will need to buy a ticket. You can buy online using your credit card or you can go to the theatre before the movie starts and buy one there.
When booking at the theatre you will need to know how to say is the movie name and also the movie time.
Walking up to the counter and say...
I would like to watch Spiderman at 6:00pm please.
Spiderman. six o'clock please.
If the movie is a latest big block buster tickets will sell out very quickly. So if you want to see the movie get there early before the movie starts and queue up.
