ODEON Kids screenings have been chosen especially for children and are every Saturday and Sunday mornings at pocket money prices. What's more with every child ticket you get a free adult ticket - so mums and dads get to go FREE!

wow odeon finally caught on have they, vue have been doing this for years, but some people may not have known so heat for the heads up

Nothing new, Odeon has been doing this for many years too! I used to take my daughter every weekend, back then they had new films on instead of stuff already on DVD......

yes been doing this for years.. but nice post for people who are clueless to this

two crappy films at the moment but still cheap

Cineworld do it too. I recommend Rio if you haven't seen it yet

i'd make sure u take plenty of money for popcorn - absolute rip off at Odeon

Simple remedy just take your own bag of popcorn and drink in a carrier bag!

THANKS

Went to Vue last week and tickets were £1.25 for adults & kids, no free ones...

Odeon don't advertise this very well - took the kids and was surprised that it was free recently!

I am not sure if this cinema specific but my odeon let you buy a film feast ticket for £4.50 - so the price of one adult and one child (normally £2.50) and also a small sweet or salty popcorn (prepacked) and a kids drink and a sweet!! The popcorn deal cost £2.99 normally but if you buy with the ticket only comes to £2!

used to go many, many years ago in Hull, to the Cecil i think, the one that was near the bus station

memories !!!!

like others say this is nothing new , but it is amazing how many people are clueless about these screenings , but what i dont figure is why parents want to go save money watching a film but then go spending £15 on popcorn and stuff , dont this defeat the object of a cheap trip out ?????????

Sorry voted cold. 2 really old rubish films.

Went to an Odeon the other week, £8.80 a ticket...!!!! the seats were uncomfortable, the screen was lop sided, even at £1 i'd avoid like the plague.

Odeon are archaic in design and technology, yet stupid enough to think they should charge more for entry and refreshments than other cinemas. Cineworld all the way...

haha, so true

got some pick n mix last time £7.20!!!!!

Can you buy the kids & adult tickets but go without the kid?

We are big fans of the children showings.
Where or how do you get the £1 tickets. Manchester and Trafford centre tickets are £2.50each (with free child) .
At the moment, in the school hols Odeon are showing everyday with a free kids seat, great value.
Odeon only seem to have one film on for a week. Cineworld show 3 films on Saturday mornings for a £1 each.
Better than the complete rip off for a full price ticket.

wont go to odeon again, took the kids to see smurfs the other day £22 for family ticket but turned out it wasnt a normal screening but one where they turned the lights on after the adverts and kids could make as much noise as they wanted to, no mention of this when we bought the tickets

The lights were actually off when we went in and you couldnt see in front of you and people were falling over but as soon as the film started the lights came on, terrible film and couldnt sleep for the lights or the noise

it is worst tht birmingham does not have any such kids show

nice.

No central London?? =(

This has been going for years now, its nothing new. absolute rip off because if you go to a cineworld or Empire cinema its only £1 per person for the saturday and sunday kid's movies.

I don't buy that stuff either, but it's the food and drink that keeps cinemas in business. The movie industry takes most of the profits from tickets, especially if you only go to see films as soon as they are released.

Just don't tell them, get a seat for your coat! lol

TBH this not always true, this weeks film was Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2, which was only released just over 2months ago!

Would rather wait the 2months and pay £5 for 4 (for premier seats), than £30 for 4 on the day of release

Odeon have been doing special screenings for disabled kids, it might have been one of them. They should be applauded for this not chastised.

My local cinema is Oxford George St - how do you find prices and book tickets? Website does not show prices and says online booking is unavailable. Does this mean I have to call the 0844 number?

Thanks for any help

Cineworld do the same on a Saturday for £1.10 per person, so 2 kids and 2 adults is £4.40 versus 2 kids and 2 adults at Odeon for £5. And Cineworld tend to have 2 or 3 films to choose from versus Odeon's option of 1. Hence, I tend to stick to Cineworld.

However, did go to Odeon once as it was nearer to where I was going after, and a fiver to keep my daughter and her pal who had stayed over the night before for quiet and happy for an hour or so was well worth it!!!

Thanks for this - I am a fairly new parent and was one of those unaware of this. I will take advantage tomorrow - cheers!

Good heads up for those who didn't know aout this. We have been taking the kids to these screenings for a few years now. Definitely a good deal.

dont vote cold because of the films!!!!!!!.. they change every week...

no odeon or vue in Nottingham. Still gets HEAT

@nicoleisapayne
you'd. Have to ring 0870 22 44 007 to book but then there's 75p extra per ticket. Better to just go down get your tickets at the desk if your not taking a large group.
