can't see why they won't let you use the tickets for bond or star wars.

it's an interesting alternative, of sorts, for those of us who don't live anywhere near a cineworld.

at £8.79 a ticket at my local vue (sometimes rising to £9.29 for new releases), it could represent a saving of over £5 a month if you used both tickets, which i easily could.

I got the offer on a banner advert at the bottom of a daily Guardian email. When I click the banner, I get some extra T&Cs as shown below, which mention the Bond and Star Wars films.

Of course, YMMV depending on the attitude of the cashier at the Vue cinema.

Just seems weird they've excluded those two films though. I'm tempted though - I don't personally read the Guardian but i could easily use the cinema tickets
If you are only after the tickets, I'd prefer buying sun perks for 7.99 a month and getting tickets to, generally at least two, free screenings a month.
Tickets £11.99 at my local so will be signing up just for the tickets...

wouldn't always work for some people, especially those who don't drive, as a lot of the screenings are early evening and often in cinemas that aren't anywhere near where you live.

at least with this offer, there are vue's in a lot more places and no time restrictions on when you can use the tickets.

i think if i wasn't trying to get the money together to get a new iPhone, i'd be all over this offer.
same as 2 OAP tickets
Interesting
seems a good deal thx

same as 2 OAP tickets



but no paper
I think this is excellent so have taken the plunge
I hate newspapers for their unaccountable bias and misuse of their responsibility & power but this paper seems less obnoxious than the rest I guess?

You don't get a newspaper with the Sun offer, either.
I wasn't even doing to read the paper... just wanted the tickets...
Sounds like a good find. Voted hot but not for me. I receive 6 Vue cinema tickets with a certain bank account per year and struggle to use those due to Vue locations not being convenient to me.

When I can manage to get to a Vue it's like the old joke about TV - there is nothing on you want to watch!
Buy 1 day UK travel insurance at Comparethemeerkat for ~£2 & get 2-for-1 tickets 4 times a month for 12 months,
Is this exclusion of Bond and Star Wars a sign going forward? Will all the new releases be excluded??!

​You're kidding! The Guardian is full of sanctimonious drivel and is as bad as the Daily Mail, but from a liberal left rather than right wing perspective.

you get six free vue cinema codes a year with a lloyds club account... and it gives you 4% on 5k too...
also, what, exactly do you get with a subscription account that you don't get just by going to the free
site?
I go to Vue every tuesday. It costs £4.40 for an adult ticket.
I have a super tuesday card which gives 1/3 off (free from the vue website)
and also hand over a vuemore voucher £1.50 off (its a loyalty voucher that you get for your next visit - valid anyday within the next 2 weeks - but they usually forget to give a replacement if you dont ask for a voucher. Also, the last time i checked vuemore vouchers were only issued in about half of their cinemas.)
It works out cheaper on tuesdays this way than by orange/meerkat wednesdays or whatever thats called now lol

The good thing about the Lloyds Vue vouchers is that you can upgrade them for 3D or Extreme screen showings (which I always do). No restrictions about which film you can see either.

On my second year's worth of vouchers now - valid till the end of July 2016.

So true. The amount of garbage the guarniad spouts these days beggars belief. They do have a decent lifestyle section though.
It took huge guts (and legal resources) to publish the snowden files.

For a newspaper to responsibly publish the most closely-kept state secrets of 5 of the most powerful countries in the world - is unbelievable. We'll never see the internet or our mobile phones in the same way again.

Even if some of the journalism in the guardian is trite - or just plain sh*te - in the scheme of things, they do some really important (and complicated) digging, take some big risks, ask difficult questions and speak truth to power in a way few newspapers dare to.

Well worth £11.99 a month, IMO.

Cold as ice. Cinema tickets are no compensation for the bigotry of the Guardian!

Here's a handy guide to what sort of person reads each newspaper.


Classic! But not quite as classic as the TW3 sketch with Cleese & the two Ronnies.

Tuesday or Wednesday.
Looks a great deal. Cost best part of £19 on a Saturday evening last month

i would just like to say that the layout of the gardian online is bloody awful. it looks like it was drawn with a whsmiths ruler set... they force headlines into the pre-formatted boxes, regardless of length of the words and there's damn all first para to get you into the story at a glance.. most times it's a guessing game as to what the writing style actually is and i, for one, can't be aaaarsed to play cryptic 'blind man's bluff' by drilling down to the meat and potatoes of the content ony to have to press the 'back' button to have another go on another mystery box. their redesign was a victory for style over content and they daren't go backwards or forwards for fear of looking incompetent.

Totally agree, they also had to go against Newscorp and all the other powerful media outlets to get this published. Rest of our media are cowards compared to The Guardian.
The best thing in The Guardian are the readers comments.
Good deal but Guardian are basically The Sun for the left wing, find their lack of reason approaching issues as stupid even if the writing is better.
Obviously it depends on your preference of newspaper and how often you go to the cinema, but the Times offer is better (for me), 2 half price tickets every weekend at Odeon. I means my wife and I can go 4 times a month (~£40 for £80-value of tickets) compared to ~£60 for the same in this offer (plus the sub).
