Pick up FREE cinema tickets & check out a movie before general release to the public with a preview movie website
Simply sign up with Show Film First & and look out for emails coming through with offers of free tickets for your local cinema. Films tend to run at off peak times, such as Saturday mornings or Tuesday evenings, and you need to be quick to use the screening code to confirm you tickets.

10. Tesco Clubcard Vouchers & Cinema Tokens
You can use your Tesco Clubcard vouchers to pay for Odeon or Cineworld tickets. Simply redeem your clubcard vouchers for cinema tokens that you then present at the box office on the day of your visit. Clubcard cinema tokens for children are slightly cheaper & be aware there are some restrictions on use.
11. Avoid Blockbuster Tax
Some cinemas are now effectively running a ‘blockbuster tax’ on highly popular movies when demand for tickets is likely to be high. This enhanced ticket price tends to run for the first few weeks following release before returning to the standard entry prices.
If you plan to see a blockbuster movie, worth double checking pricing at your local cinema and, if necessary, waiting it out a few weeks.
12. Odeon 40% Voucher Code
At select times, Odeon Cinema runs a popular 40% voucher/code that offers discounts off adult, student, child & senior tickets. Previously, this voucher has been available for use an unlimited number of times during the promotional period and offers a great way to enjoy substantial savings on a trip to the movies.
We’ll bring you more details when this deal runs again in the future.
Top Tips For Cheap Cinema Tickets
i. Cheap Cinema Tickets; Watch in 2D
It only hit me recently that I actually don’t like 3D movies. This only occurred to me having read that one of the main reasons 3D movies are here to stay is that the film industry love them, (3D movies are impossible to pirate!)
But when I consider those uncomfortable glasses, the additional expense & the sudden realization that I actual prefer the 2D experience…it’s time to revert!
ii. Alternatively, Remember Your Glasses
Haven’t we all got pairs of 3D glasses strewn around the house that we’ve forgotten to bring with us AGAIN…remember it’s cheaper if you bring your own 3D glasses!
iii. Cineworld Unlimited Cards
For avid movie customers, it can be worth joining Cineworld’s Unlimited Card scheme. You pay a monthly fee, (additional charges for London West End & 3D movies) and watch as many movies as you wish!
For double deals why not combine a Cineworld Unlimited Card with Orange Wednesdays that gives both you & a friend substantially reduced cinema prices plus deals at Pizza Express!
