It's still free no matter how many scoops you get.

Does this include the ben&jerry's at cinemas?

Well it looks like it does as when you check on the link all locations come up and i cannot find anywhere where it says cinema locations are not included in the free cone offer.

It should be. In previous years ive had one from the Empire cinema in Wigan and the Vue cinema in Bolton. Seems to mostly be from cinemas.

Plus Meerkat Movies code to use aswell with it being on a Tuesday so another bonus

Yeah but the United Kingdom PRIMARY definition is an Ice Cream. Are you an American? Jesus. Is this what Satellite television does to our minds?

When was the last time a small child ran in the street asking for a 'Cone'. Buffoonery!

Odeon Broadway Plaza and Vue Star City participating (probably going to use the leftover Ben and Jerry's since only people without any sense of value or worth would buy their overpriced B+J scoops, particularly at Odeon Broadway as round the corner and across the road from that cinema there's a huge Morrisons store)

No I am not american, I have always called it an ice cream cone,?
I have never seen a child run out into the street asking for anything to be honest.
Anyway its FREE Ice cream so take it or leave it.

Exactly, Thank You x

Pah. Searched our nearest stores.... store 8 in the list was the first that does free cone day, but is too far, like 6-7 miles. Powty face...

None of the 6 near us are participating

Same, all the stores covering greater Manchester.

I have a feeling you will be lucky to find one that participates..

Eat it and get out.

Leicester the nearest one it says. 80 miles for an ice cream.lol

Amazing, it's only 65 miles and over an hour's drive for my free scoop of ice cream.

Free Con day ;-)

My nearest is 40.5miles

In Edinburgh your nearest place is Glasgow! Not worth it!

None in Liverpool City Centre

None in Manchester voted cold

There's none in Manchester, closest is 34.5 miles away in Wigan, Such a shame, love getting fat haha! But voted hot as its great for anyone who lives near one!

None in Liverpool City Centre


Yep, even though I believe they did it in the Odeon in Liverpool One last year. Instead, you'd have to trek to Norris Green's Showcase cinema several miles away instead.

I think Odeon cinemas are doing themselves an injustice by not taking part (if it's their decision to do so which I guess I don't really know). In common with other unfriendly organisations they make it hard to actually call a cinema to ask them anything. So earlier today I went on to the Odeon web chat and here's the main parts of my conversation:

dfurn 11:27:
May I ask regarding my local Odeon?
dfurn 11:27:
Is it taking part in the Ben and Jerry's free cone day please?
dfurn 11:28:
It's done it for the last few years but I am getting contradictory information this year.
Support Agent 11:28:
Yes, they are.
dfurn 11:28:
Woo hoo excellent!
dfurn 11:28:
I'll get off there now!
dfurn 11:29:
Thank-you very much.
Support Agent 11:29:
No worries.

So I make a special journey to said local Odeon and of course they are not taking part after all. The ice cream seller was very apologetic to give him his dues. Anyhow so I called Odeon guest services (or whatever they are called) and reported the chat log with reference number. They confirmed the chat person was wrong. However they called the cinema manager who came out to see me and read the chat log (which he asked me to email him). He also was very apologetic and offered me a free ice cream anyhow. So in the end Odeon cinema staff have very much impressed me; the guest services people have not.
