Girl in Florence aka Georgette Jupe

I started this blog as a writing outlet for me to share what it is I adore about the beautiful city of Florence and Italy also sharing travel tips and stories along the way. Now 'Girl in Florence' includes advice for Florence, artisan features, interviews with locals, tips for life in Italy and travel posts from all over Europe. I'd love to think of myself as a fearless badass but If I am keeping it 100% real on this blog a quote that I sort of live by is"I haven't failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." I hope you enjoy this journey with me.

Firenze Cinema card.. details here!

21.01.2012 No Comments

I got really excited when I found out they are finally coming out with a movie card for the smaller movie theatres around town. Obviously this does not apply to every place                  (including the famous Odeon and Astra 2) , which probably doesn’t “need” to participate.

I feel like this is the small movie theatres kick in the “culo” to the big multi-plexes that surround the city. I am not knocking them ( well ok, maybe a little )  its just difficult for someone who does not have a car or does not want to drive 40 minutes to see a movie.. and we cherish having cinemas available ( however small ) near our residential areas in Florence.

details about the “Firenze al Cinema ” card:

This card is a VIP cinema card in which you will have access to diverse promotions, special events and discounts.. ** woohoo! If I tell my boyfriends mom this she will run and get one despite the fact that she never actually goes to the movies, all you have to say is “discount” or “free” .

The price of said card is €15.00 and until the 31 of January 2012 they offering a promotion where the  price is actually only €5.00,  so get on it! .. This is valid until Dec 31, 2012 and it is a one-off payment.

You can purchase and use the card at any of the participating cinemas.

What kinds of discounts can you expect? Try a reduced  price of only €5.00 to see a movie or €8.50 for a 3D feature. In addition you will also have..

• Personal invitations to movie premieres with directors and actors.. wow!
• Free invites to special events.
• Every week there will be a special viewing of a movie chosen from the current showings     with a special price of only  €3.00
• Numerous other surprises to discover and reserved only for the holders of the “Firenze al Cinema” card..

Participating cinemas are listed below:

Happy viewing! I know I will 🙂

    This is the first time that I hear about this! Have you used it enough to recommend it to me, now that’s it’s October!? Ah, I’m pretty late in the game. Thanks…

      I know that the Odeon has a plan to. Whether it’s worth it or not really depends on how many times you go to the movies. We are movie buffs so it is for us but if you only go one or twice a month, maybe not..

    Hi There!

    Ciao, I'm a curious American "Tuscan Texan" who has called Florence, Italy home for the past 13 years and now you'll find me between Firenze and Zug, Switzerland. Besides the blog, I am the editor at Italy Magazine and I also work as an established digital social media marketing strategist (5+ years) as well as a freelance writer. You might have seen my articles in Lonely Planet and a feature on my blog in Forbes. This space is my way to share what life is like living and working abroad, as well as provide up-to-date true advice on traveling, eating and living in Europe with tips for weekend trips. I'm married to a wonderful Frenchman and we have a Florentine beagle who rules the household. Keep in touch with our adventures with your favorite glass of franciacorta or espresso!
