See a film for free on National Lottery Cinema Day

National Lottery Cinema Day is back in 2019!

National Cinema Lottery Day

Every time you play the National Lottery you’re supporting British film production, exhibition and innovation, as well as community projects across the UK.

To say THANK YOU, venues nationwide – including BFI Southbank – are inviting you to see a FREE film on Sunday 25 August with your Lotto ticket.

You can reserve your free adult cinema ticket from Wednesday 21 August at cinemaday.co.uk – check out the calendar for the day’s screenings.

Happy viewing!

First come, first served. If you don’t want to take your chances you’ll still be able to book paid tickets for the day in advance at bfi.org.uk/southbank or 020 7928 3232 as usual. See the calendar for the day’s full listings.
