How much is TO MUCH???

How much is to much?
It's a real question. How much are you will to spend on something or on tickets to some event that is coming up. Does it come down to value of the item or value vs time spent at the event. I am no stranger to spending large or what would be considered a large amount of money on both but recently i was presented with an opportunity to see Star Wars Episode V The Empire Strikes Back on a big screen. Something i and a friend would normally jump at but i just can not justify the cost of the tickets...
The Secret Cinema is showing The Empire Strikes Back and is charging £78 per-person. Now i don't really know what The Secret Cinema is apart from a very basic understanding that it's an event held around the country and show movies in secret locations. But i have a problem. They have not said where the locations are nor what is involved apart from there is smaller events around London leading up to the screening. But without knowing what will happen i can't mentally break down the cost of seeing the film. £78 is not a lot of money when i compare it to other events i have been to. Star Trek Destination London cost Well over £300 But once you break down the cost vs the amount of time spent there and cost vs what i was seeing and who i was meeting the £300+ was reasonable. And i have done two of those conventions. So £78 is not a lot in relation to what i have spent in the past. But i don't know what i am getting for my £78 I have seen the movie countless times and have seen it three or four times on the big screen and i know i should be jumping at any chance to see a Star Wars movie on the big screen but i would not spend that much for it. I saw Return of the Jedi at the Prince Charles Cinema for the 30th anniversary and that cost £17. 
So what am i getting for 78 POUNDS!!!...
I get the whole secret in Secret Cinema... It's meant to be a mystery so fun and only a few people would be there but without more information and in turn lifting the vile of mystery i don't know how i can spend that much money... If it was anywhere between £20-30 i would of been all over this and got my tickets on day one but this... i just can't bring myself to spend the money. I know i am trying to save and clear my debts and all but this is the kind of thing i did this blog to cover. And i just can't bring myself to go.... If you are interested in going here is the link for the tickets


Now if you do go let me know how it went and what i missed out on in the comments below. or if you have been to a Secret Cinema screening before let me know what you saw and how it went. I might just change my mind and go.

Well on a completely different note it's Easter in a few days and i have the week off. So a long weekend that leads to the rest of the week off... Hell YEAH!!!!
I don't know what i will be doing with that time off. I still have all the Mecha model kits i got for Mecha Month last year and never got round to building them so i might do a few of them. I still have a massive backlog of games i need to get through on the Xbox and Playstation. Or i could do some DIY around the house... got to paint the hall and the bedrooms.... And then there is my Vader Helmet that needs to be worked on.... 
With all that i wont have anytime to relax...
