PARENTS can now take their kids to the cinema and pay the same price as a children’s ticket, which is handy for the upcoming February half-term holidays.
Odeon has launched a new offer that sees the price of an adult cinema ticket slashed if their kids are in tow.
The deal, which is permanent offer available from now onwards, is available to two adults taking two little’uns to the pictures, or to one adult taking three children to the cinema.
You can use the offer on any film but kids must be aged 12 or under to qualify and you may need to show ID.
Savings aren’t huge but if you were planning a trip to the cinema anyway then it’s a good way to cut the cost.
Cinema prices vary by location, but if you take a showing of The Lego Movie 2 at the Odeon in Basingstoke in Hampshire, you’d normally pay £6.75 as a child and £8.25 as an adult.
Under the offer, everyone pays £6.75, which means a saving of £3 for a family of four with two under-13s or a saving of £1.50 for one adult with three kids in tow.
Meanwhile at the Odeon in Kingston in London, a child’s ticket normally costs £10 while an adult’s is £13.75.
So you’d save £7.50 for a family with two adults and two kids or £3.75 for one adult with three kids.
Tickets can be booked by selecting the ‘Family’ option online or in cinema branches, although showings at Odeon’s ‘EVENT Cinema’ are excluded.
But there are ways to get cheaper tickets – even at Odeon.
Vodafone users can currently get two Odeon tickets for £7 if they join the mobile firm’s loyalty club.
While, Vue does £2.50 tickets for adults AND children if you go at 10am on a Saturday morning.
Cineworld also does movies for juniors from £2.50 for both parents and kids.
You can also get two-for-one cinema tickets for a YEAR if you compare and buy an insurance product via Compare the Market’s Meerkat Movies.
