How To Save Money At The Movies These Autumn School Holidays

  • Parents Only

The perfect activity for a rainy or quiet day in the April school holidays, a trip to the movies is a great way to keep the kids entertained—and thanks to the new HOYTS Saver and Super Saver Sessions it is now more affordable than ever to take the family to the cinema.  

The Saver and Super Saver Sessions are perfect for families as they offer great value pricing for family-friendly movies, regularly throughout the week. All you need to do is book into a session marked “Saver” or “Super Saver” and you’ll save serious dollars. 

Oh and extra-comfy recliner seats are the new normal at selected HOYTS. Perfect for that mini mama-nap while the kids enjoy the film. 

So, How To Save Money At The Movies

HOYTS have simplified their discounted pricing to make all ticket types cheaper for sessions marked Saver and Super Saver (find out more here). This means everyone can tag along and discounts don’t depend on the size your family! These sessions are available to every movie lover and on offer daily. It's also great to see that these discounts don't have the same restrictions as a 'family ticket' (2x adults, 2x kids etc) meaning families of all shapes and sizes can save. Guests can choose Saver or Super Saver sessions when they book in cinema, on the website or on the HOYTS App. More budget for the Candy Bar and popcorn, perhaps?
