A trip to the cinema is always worth it — after all, nothing can top catching the action play out on the big screen, whether it’s a crime thriller cloaked in mystery and suspense or a big dumb action number with joyous fight scenes.
But, as we all know too well, a trip to the cinema often costs a pretty penny. Between the tickets, popcorn and drinks you’re shelling out a few bank notes to make it happen. This weekend, though, that’s all about to change.
Saturday (September 3) marks National Cinema Day, and most venues across the country are putting on every film for just £3. Three quid. 300p. Cheap, essentially.
If you were heading to the Vue at Westfield on a normal day, you’re looking at tickets for a tenner, and that price can be even higher in other cinemas around the city. Thanks to this handy tool, you can find your nearest participating cinema and head down for a cut-price screening this weekend.
It goes for all films, all day. And there’s no catch at all. Just pay your reduce fee and sit down to one of the great ones on right now, from Jordan Peele’s third directorial effort Nope to Bullet Train ft. Brad Pitt to the obviously-movie-of-the-year Minions: The Rise of Gru.
Hundreds of cinemas across the country are participating, with many even putting on classic screenings for the occasion, alongside the new releases. Have a browse here to find your cinema, and get booking.
