5. Tuesday Cinema Deals; Bargain Tuesdays with Cineworld

Participating cineworld cinemas around the UK offer discounted tickets each Tuesday for ALL movies being shown on that day.  If you have any flexibility when planning a visit to the cinema, it can be well worth taking into account mid week saving such as these.

8. Free Cinema Tickets

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.

More details available at Free Preview Movie Screenings.

Sky+ Times+ members can also take advantage of FREE movie previews but these are only available to respective customers.

9. Tuesday & Wednesday Cinema Deals; MeerKat Movies

Whilst the Orange Wednesdays has come to an end, Compare the Market customers can take advantage of a similar 2 for 1 promotion on cinema tickets.  ‘MeerKat Movies’ will offer a 2 for 1 on cinema tickets and will run on Tuesdays & Wednesdays, (customers can opt for Tuesday OR Wednesday each week).

More details available from MeerKat Movies.

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!

    Please send me details of any offers to Odeon and Vue cinemas.

    • Hi Jane, within the article you’ve probably seen the off peak deals that run at both Odeon & Vue cinemas, (family movies at the weekend, cheap ticket Tuesdays & MeerKat Movies). Odeon cinema tend to run regular 40% off promotions throughout the year and we’ll update this page & include within our email newsletter when this & other cinema offers run again.

  2. I always like to see a great film, but there just aren’t that many of them…. However I expect Spectre to be a great film….

    • Hi Andrew, Spectre is likely to be a big hit this autumn and if you can pick up a deal on cheap movie tickets then surely that’s all the better:)

  3. Please have you any offers for 3 mobile customers I luv the cinema 🙁

    • Hi Marion, I’m the same – the cinema is such a different experience but it can get expensive. I don’t know any specific deals for 3 mobile customers but if you can visit at a less busy time, (Tuesdays are a popular day to find cheaper tickets), or enjoy a family movie that has been released some weeks before, (such as the family mid morning movies that run at the weekends), then there are deals still to be had. You could also sign up for a screen preview site that offers you the opportunity to pick free cinema tickets from time to time:)
