How to get FREE cinema tickets this weekend

MOVIE buffs can go to the cinema for free this weekend with 200,000 tickets up for grabs.

You and a guest can get your hands on a free ticket each that can be used at more than 500 cinemas across the country.

Cineworld, Odeon and Vue are among the chains taking part in the offer, along with independent movie theatres.

Tickets can be used for showings taking place on Saturday (June 19) or Sunday (June 20).

Films on this weekend which you could watch for free include new releases like Cruella, focusing on the villain from 101 Dalmatians, and In the Heights, the new movie musical from the creator of Hamilton.

The freebie is being offered by the National Lottery and the British Film Institute (BFI) as part of its cinema weekend.

How to find top bargain deals

Money raised by playing the lottery helps fund the film industry, among other causes and charities, and now it's giving back with the free cinema tickets

You will need to be a lottery player to get the two adult tickets, so if you play every week or even occasionally, you won't be paying anything for the tickets.

You'll need to show that you've bought either a National Lottery ticket, instant win game or scratchcard since January 2019.

If you don't play the lottery, you'll have to fork out for one of those, either online or in a shop.

But that's still cheaper than the average cinema ticket which costs £6.75 on average per person, and in some locations more.

It costs £2 to play the lottery, from £2 for a scratchcard and from £1 to play an instant win.

That means you can get two tickets worth £13.50 on average, for as little as £1 – a saving of more than a tenner.

To get your tickets, you can go to and search for your nearest cinema and movie showing.

Select book now and you'll have to share some info like your email address and name, as well as the details of your lottery ticket.
