I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge film fan. But, seeing the latest blockbuster can get expensive. So, in today’s post, I’m going to run through multiple ways you can get cheap cinema tickets at Vue Cinemas.
Tickets can cost up to around £14 for standard adult tickets depending on location. But, one of the good things about Vue cinemas’ is that a huge number of them offer reduced standard pricing everyday with their Every Film, Everyday promotion. So, let’s take a closer look…

Always Cheaper Online Venues
The following Vue cinemas run a deal that always gives you a cheaper price if you book online rather than paying at the box office.
£4.99 when booking online, £5.49 at the box office
Cramlington, Doncaster, Glasgow Fort, Sheffield
£6.99 online vs £7.49 at the box office
Student Discounts and Offers
Students who use the Hold App can also get discounted tickets and free boxes of popcorn. The Hold app is a nifty app that rewards students with points for not using their phone which they can exchange for rewards (including Vue Cinema ticket discounts and popcorn).
Vue cinemas also offer student discounts with a valid ID at some locations.
Kids Screenings – Vue Mini Mornings
Vue Mini Mornings offer £2.49 tickets for children and accompanying adults. Vue cinemas run Mini Mornings every weekend from 10am and every day during school holidays.
It tends to be quite limited in terms of films though. For example, my nearest Vue is only showing Maleficent at the moment, so bear this in mind.
Vue Family Tickets
With the Vue family ticket, everyone pays the child ticket price. You can only get this when booking online though for 2D screenings.
Or you can go for the All-Inclusive Family Ticket that gives you four tickets, four drinks, and four snacks for up to 20% off.
A few cinemas are excluded too.
Family Tickets aren’t currently available at Vue Aberdeen, Ashbourne, Cardiff, Carmarthen, Cleverleys, Cwmbran, Dublin, Edinburgh Ocean, Gateshead, Hamilton, Lancaster, Limerick, Rhyl and Thanet.
Senior Screening – Seniors Cinema Club
Senior screenings are exclusively for the over 60’s. Films include latest releases and classics, and you also get a cuppa and a biscuit with your ticket.
2 for 1 cinema tickets with Meerkat Movies
You can get 2 for 1 cinema tickets at Vue Cinemas on Tuesdays and Wednesdays by using the Meerkat Movies offer from Compare the Market.
You can claim the offer by either entering your weekly code when you book online (75p per ticket booking fee applies) or by presenting your code to a member of staff if you buy your tickets in the cinema.
This is probably the absolute cheapest way to get tickets if you use it at an Every Film, Every Day venue as you can get adult tickets for a total of £4.99.
You can find out more in my Meerkat Movies guide including how it works, and how to get it for around £1 for the year.
Discounted cinema tickets with Tastecard Plus
If you’re not going to the cinema on a Tuesday or Wednesday (meaning you can’t use Meerkat Movies), using a Tastecard Plus deal* could be your best bet.
You can use the Tastacard Plus offers nationwide at Vue cinemas on 2D or 3D films. To get the deal you need to buy and e-ticket using the Tastecard app (45p booking fee applies).
The prices vary depending on location and you get a minimal discount of 50p if you’re going to one of the “Cheap Vue Cinemas” that only charge £4.99 for all films.
To find out more about Tastecard Plus, take a look at my review.
6 Free Vue Tickets with a Club Lloyds Bank Account
