Free cinema tickets for school children

1 min read

The annual Into Film festival has begun, a national scheme to encourage children to watch, enjoy and even make their own films. It is supported by Cinema and the British Film Institute and is funded by National Lottery funding.

Over two million children and teachers have benefitted from the scheme since 2013. Here on the island, Cineworld offers a selection of films aimed at primary and secondary school children until November 22. Free cinema seats are available for selected films including The Grinch, On the Basis of Sex and Johnny English Strikes Again.
