London doesn’t need to be an expensive place for those in the know. I will be giving tips over the many weeks to come on how to save when going out in London. In my Toptable post, I showed you how to save money when dining out, well there is loads of money to be saved when going to the cinema too. Vue cinema offers standby cinema vouchers for £4.25 plus 50 pence booking fee on Mondays to Thursdays from lastminute.com. A standby cinema voucher can be used to see the latest movies in any Vue cinema in London which means that you can even go to the West End Vue in Leicester Square for £4.75 where tickets are normally £11.75! So that’s a saving of £7!!
Another cheap cinema ticket offer which those with an Orange mobile are probably already using is “Orange Wednesday”. Every Wednesday you can buy 2 cinema tickets for the price of 1 at practically all cinemas in the UK by texting “film” to 241 from your orange mobile and you will then receive a text message with the 2 for 1 voucher that you can use at the cinema! Orange broadband and dial up customers can also use this offer – there is more information on this at the Orange website. To get a free Orange sim card sent to you, you can order one from here.
A lot of movies have free screenings before they are actually released in cinemas (I used to attend nearly 1 a month but the number of free screenings has decreased over the years) so I will keep my eyes peeled and let you all know if I find any free screenings. Feel free to leave a comment if you find a free screening too…If you liked this post, buy me a latte :-)
