As the cost of living crisis bites, we don’t want people to break the habit of coming to the cinema because it’s something they can no longer afford. There’s no better way to watch a film than to make an event of it and see it on the big screen, with an audience. You won’t be asked any questions if you choose this price point, just choose the Budget Ticket option when you book.
