The quietest times to visit Vue

If you’d rather avoid the crowds, here’s when to come

We want everybody to be able to enjoy the magic of the big screen, but we realise that some people feel more comfortable when things are a little quieter. If that’s you, then you can plan your visit for a time when Vue is less busy. Here’s all the information you need on how you can sit back, switch off and stay safe.

When to come

The quietest time to come is on Monday – Thursday, before 4pm.

When booking your ticket, our live seat map will show you how many seats are still available in a particular screening (you can check this right up to your actual visit.)

Then all you need to do is grab your snacks, sit back and enjoy a few hours of uninterrupted big screen bliss.
