Film Centre extends its £5 ticket offer

WELLS Film Centre has extended its £5 ticket offer until the end of the year.

In August, the cinema reduced its ticket prices to just £5 each in a bid to encourage more customers to attend after what it said had been a difficult start to the year. Although the offer seems to have helped in some respects, the bulk of customers visited to watch two films over the summer, Barbie and Oppenheimer.

Wells Film Centre decided at the end of August to extend this offer to include September, and has now made the decision to carry this on until the end of 2023.

Proprietor Sally Cooper said: “We are very grateful for the support we received over the summer and have decided to carry on the £5 offer in the hope it will encourage more customers to come and watch a variety of films over the next few months, with a line-up that includes: Ken Loach’s The Old Oak, The Great Escaper, The Miracle Club, Paw Patrol The Mighty Movie, Trolls 3: Band Together, The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, Cliff Richard, Andre Rieu, Wonka and The Colour Purple. We are not out of the woods yet.”

Wells Film Centre has not recovered fully since the Covid 19 pandemic, she continued, and with the added pressures lots of businesses are facing “this is the time to use your local cinema”. 

The £5 offer is not available on any Special Events or Event Cinema shows. For more information and too see a full line-up of future releases, visit
