Claiming your cinema ticket and drink and snack at participating cinemas
  • To claim a cinema ticket, select the cinema you want to visit from the selection of participating cinema venues listed on this site. You will then be required to enter your name and email address and to set a password. You will then be required to enter the code from your National Lottery ticket. You must confirm the number of tickets you require (max 2).
  • You will then be presented with a booking confirmation with details of your ticket(s).
  • National Lottery hosts Love Actually at the Cinema tickets are only available at participating cinemas via this site. You will not be able to claim a free ticket at the participating cinema’s box office.
  • To claim your free drink and snack, show your ticket at the cinema for which the ticket is booked for. It is at the discretion of the cinema as to which drinks and snacks are made available.

  • Any National Lottery player with a National Lottery ticket or game bought after 1st January 2022 can claim free entry for two adults to a screening of Love Actually on 23rd December 2022 (subject to availability), and claim two standard drinks and two snacks (from a selection determined by the venue).
How do I get tickets?
Choose the screening you’d like to go to, apply and if you are successful, you'll see the booking confirmation on screen. We'll also email you the confirmation. You can print it or just show it on your phone when you go to the screening. Please check all details, tickets and age restrictions before the screening.

Are there any age restrictions?
Entrance to the Love Actually screening is subject to film age certification regulations, any rules and regulations, and any additional terms and conditions of the participating cinema.

I’m in a wheelchair/I have mobility issues – will there be suitable access and facilities for me?
If you have any special accessibility requirements, you will need to book tickets using the standard process. When you receive confirmation that you have been allocated tickets, contact us at loveactually@weticketit.com to let us know your needs. We can then contact the event venue to check accessibility and let you know. In some instances, notice of accessible seating may only be available at short notice. If wheelchair spaces are available, these will be offered on a first-come first-served basis.

What type of ID do I need to bring with me?
Please bring your driving licence or credit card to show your name matches the one on your tickets.

Can I choose where I sit at the screening?
Seats will be allocated on the day of the screening on a first-come, first-served basis so you won't be able to choose a specific seat in advance.

How do I change the name on my tickets?
You can’t change the name so if you can’t make it, please cancel your tickets so someone else can make use of them.

I booked two tickets. Will they be for seats next to each other?

If you arrive together then it is likely you will be seated together as seats are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis on entry but we are unable to guarantee this. Please arrive early for the best seats.

What's the waiting list?

Once all tickets are booked for an event, you can add yourself to a waiting (or cancellations) list. If tickets are subsequently cancelled, we'll send them to the waiting list in order of application.

    I just don't get why they chose a 19-year old rom-com that happens to be set around Christmastime. Might as well show Die Hard or Gremlins, Actually
    What don’t you get?  I am sure a group of overpaid people sat on bean bags and had to pick a film.   No doubt, feasting on a buffet paid for by our lost hopes and dreams each Saturday evening.

    what is the free drink and snack?
    Think it depends on the cinema. Vue confirmation says soft drink and choice of either hot dog, nachos or popcorn
