London Cinema: memberships & deals
If you’re a fan of cinema, it may be worth investing in a membership at your local screen or in the cinema you attend the most to regularly save money on tickets. You can also get discounts by going on “non-traditional” cinema nights, such as Mondays or Wednesdays:
The quirky, avante-garde Prince Charles Cinema in Central London offers an annual £10/yr membership (or £50 for a lifetime membership), which gets you regular discounts on tickets plus early announcements to many of their events, and discounts at businesses throughout Soho: http://www.princecharlescinema.com/html/membership.php
Every Monday night at the Barbican you’ll get to see all new-release films for only £5/ticket.
The Barbican has a family film club that encompasses not only film (with a programmed family film every Saturday) but also art, music, and theatre. You’ll get discounts on the weekly film and the other events as well. It is free to join. http://www.barbican.org.uk/family-film-club/
If you’re 16-25, you can join Barbican’s “freeB” membership scheme to get lots of free tickets to not only cinema but their other art & music events as well: http://www.barbican.org.uk/free_b/about-freeb
If your mobile carrier (or iPad carrier) is Orange, you can take part in Orange Wednesdays: you’ll get 2-for-1 cinema tickets (at the moment it looks like you also get 2 for 1 pizzas at Pizza Express on the same deal). It’s as easy as sending a text on the day of to get your 2 for 1 cinema tickets sent to you via SMS (or use the app on your iPhone: http://more-from.orange.co.uk/orange-wednesdays/?utm_source=Google&utm_medium=PPC
