Money Saving Tips, Tricks and Bargain Deals For Cheap Cinema Tickets

Money Saving Tips and Tricks For the Cinema

A traditional trip to the cinema is always a popular choice, but the costs can add up, it's just not as cheap as it used to be! 

So, I thought it might be a good idea to collate some of the best money saving tips, tricks and money saving deals to help you grab a bargain with a selection of cut price ticket deals.

We've all heard of "Orange Wednesdays", but there are so many more, with pretty much a cinema ticket deal available for every day of the week. To make it easy for you, I've put together a table of all the bargain big chain cinema deals I have found for each day of the week.

 Money Saving Deal Available
Monday  VUE (Super Mondays) - £4 - £5.50 Monday Tickets | Showcase "Insider" £7.30 Cinema Tickets
Tuesday  Two VUE Tickets for £9.49 at Wowcher OR Living Social | Showcase "Insider" £7.30 Cinema Tickets
Wednesday  Two VUE Tickets for £9.49 at Wowcher OR Living Social 
Thursday  Two VUE Tickets for £9.49 at Wowcher OR Living Social 

Enough about the big Cinema chains and their deals, another top money saving tip for a bargain trip to the big screen, is to visit one of the many independent Cinemas dotted around the country. 

These independent picture houses are usually a fraction of the cost of a large chain group Cinema and often boast unique charm and historic Art Deco vibes. I do think it's important to support these small Cinema's to help keep them alive for future generations to experience.  One place that always stuck in my mind was Cinderford Pictures in the Forest of Dean which charges only £4.00 a film and boasts roomy leg room and a cheap tuck shop! I often visit here with my best friend who lives in the 'Shire, when there is a major blockbuster out, as for that price... Why not!
