How to save money on cinema tickets
A TRIP to the cinema can end up costing a fortune by the time you've paid for your tickets and snacks.
We reveal how you can keep costs down while still being able to catch the latest films.
- Meerkat Movies: If you take out an insurance policy through Compare the Market, you'll get access to Meetkat Movies and Meals for one year. This gives you buy one get one free on cinema tickets every Tuesday and Wednesay in select venues. Do make sure you're buying a policy you actually need though.
- Free Movies UK: Sign up to get free preview tickets through the Free Movies UK website. It works under the assumption that if you like the film, you'll probably recommend it to a friend. While sometimes you'll also be asked to give feedback on what you've watched. It's not guaranteed that you'll always get the free tickets you've applied for, so keep that in mind.
- Show Film First: Show Film First is a somewhat exclusive club that where members can get free access to invite-only events and previews. However, whether or not you get your membership approved is based on where you live and your preferences.
- Go in the week: Finally, most cinemas tend to lower prices for showings Monday to Thursday. So if you're around in the week to watch a film, you'll avoid paying a weekend premium. For example, VUE cinemas offer discounts as part of a Super Mondays promotion.
Unfortunately, you can't use them to watch every film on at the cinema – Frozen II, Jumanji Next Level, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and Cats are excluded from the offer.
If you want to watch Le Mans or Last Christmas, then you'll need to book after November 22.
