Did you know every time you play The National Lottery you’re supporting British film as well as community projects in your local area?

To say THANK YOU, we’re inviting you to watch a film on Lotto at Picturehouse Cinemas on National Lottery Cinema Day, Sunday 30 September. From golden oldies, modern masterpieces and new releases, there’ll be something for everyone! All you need is your Lotto ticket purchased for draws between 26 and 29 September to get a free adult cinema ticket on National Lottery Cinema Day.*

National Lottery players have helped fund thousands of projects across the British film industry since 1994, including training and development schemes to nurture new talent as well as educational initiatives in local schools and BFI Academies to engage the next generation. Their support has also helped British filmmakers create extraordinary films such as The King’s SpeechSuffragetteViceroy’s House and Pride and work with the BFI to engage new audiences through the BFI Film Audience Network and the BFI Audience Fund.

Tickets for the screenings will be available on the day on a first-come-first-served basis from our Box Office. We’re expecting the day to be very popular so we suggest getting your tickets early!

We’ll reveal which films you can see soon – watch this space!
