Accessing cheap cinema tickets has never been easier. Carry on reading for my guide on how to get cheap Odeon cinema tickets and cinema discounts across the UK. The prices are so cheap now via the use of codes, discounts or passes that the only thing you’ll need to worry about is the cost of the popcorn and Pic’n’Mix.
How much are Odeon cinema tickets?
The prices of Odeon cinema tickets can vary wildly due to a number of factors. The cost of London Odeon tickets is obviously higher than those based in more rural locations in the UK. There’s also a number of film format options and prices that will affect the Odeon cinema ticket price. As an illustration I’ve included below the costs for a standard 2D viewing of a recent release at both a London Odeon and a non-London location. I’ve used my home city of Norwich for this example.

Compared to Odeon, How much are Vue cinema tickets?
As a general comparison, Vue are cheaper than Odeon cinemas – that’s why I’m mentioning them here too. So if you’re lucky enough to have a local Vue cinema near you it is worth checking out their offers compared to your local Odeon. The Vue cinema near me is, in general, cheaper than the Odeon cinema near me due to the fact they offer a £5 “Any Film, Any Day” offer. This may obviously very county to county but it’s worth looking into their special offers and kid’s film club days.
That being said, even with cheaper general admission prices, Vue can still be undercut by Odeon deals such the the 5 Odeon tickets for £20 offer mentioned later on in this article.

Are there discounts for cinemas near me?
Often people overlook the local independent cinema deals. I googled the term “are there discounts for cinemas near me?” and a handful of free screening and preview events came up.
