We shared some free big screen magic with the nation

Because the big screen isn’t just fun - it can be good for you too

Choosing your snacks. Sinking down into a comfy seat. The excitement you feel when the lights go down. Forgetting about absolutely everything for a couple of hours…watching a film on the big screen has always been a special experience — but did you know it can be good for you too? Yep, there’s actual science that proves it has benefits for your wellbeing.

Why? Because it allows us to totally immerse ourselves in another world for a couple of hours without any distractions, giving our brains a rare and much needed chance to recharge. It really is magic — and we wanted to share some of that magic with the nation by giving away a MILLION minutes of free cinema this July, twice! *

Over a quarter of a million entries

That’s right - that’s how many entries we received in our giveaway. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on some free big screen magic, we hope you enjoyed the opportunity to sit back, switch off and get lost in a great story.

Speaking of great stories...

From action packed blockbusters and horror to scare you silly, to comedy to give you belly laughs and drama to take you away from reality, check out what’s showing at Vue this summer and book your own big screen escape.
