Hands up, who missed being able to see the latest movies on the big screen?
Streaming services and DVDs have been great in lockdown, but they can’t quite match the feeling of sitting in a movie theater seat with a bowl of popcorn as the lights go out and the credits begin to roll. And it’s even better if you don’t have to pay for your seats.
This weekend, your National Lottery ticket will unlock fun things near you. National Lottery players can reserve a few cinema tickets for a film of their choice (subject to conditions) for free during the National Lottery Cinema Weekend. This offer, in partnership with BFI (British Film Institute), will allow you to book from 1 January 2019 with any ticket of any National Lottery game purchased online or in store.
Tickets – which you can book here from Tuesday 15th June – is valid in select Cineworld, Odeon, Vue and independent cinemas across the UK, giving you a huge choice of venues.
Book your free tickets now NationalLotteryUnlocked.com!
The offer is valid this Saturday and Sunday, so you can bring a friend or family member for a great value trip to see Emma Stone’s latest hit Cruella, or the brand new British film After Love, starring Joanna Scanlan.
To redeem your tickets, all you need is your National Lottery ticket (Lotto, EuroMillions, Set For Life), Instant Win Game ticket or scratch card, purchased online or in store from January 1, 2019. Tickets must be pre-booked and can be claimed at NationalLotteryUnlocked.com.
