Free movies on Bookworm Wednesdays @ Showcase Cinemas for kids in school holidays


Bookworm Wednesdays is an exciting summer reading programme designed to encourage our young patrons to read during the summer months. Every Wednesday morning during the summer holidays at 10:00 a.m., just bring a book report with you to one of the participating Showcase Cinemas to enjoy the selected Bookworm Wednesdays films. That's your price of admission. You can download the book report form from the link below.

Each week the participating cinemas randomly select one child's book report from all entries received. That child will receive a prize pack with movie goodies and a pair of passes. Additionally, every week five children's book reports will be drawn from all submissions and each child will win a pair of cinema passes. At the end of the five-week programme, one grand prize winner will win a years worth of movie passes for themselves and a friend, as well as an additional prize pack.

We have been going to these for the past few years and the kids love it. They have to fill in a book review, there is a link on the website where you go to download the form, then at the beginning of the movie they do a draw and give prizes. We have won tickets every year to come back and see another movie for free - this is a really good freebie!


i went to this last year, easy for kids to fill out and some good movies such as cars, etc

fantastic idea

my local library does a similar thing for free stickers, pens and medals. my children seem very impressed with these still - won't last!

What a great idea... Shame there is nothing in Liverpool for my nephews!
