Sheffield’s Showroom Cinema is offering South Yorkshire residents a chance to watch any film for free on Sunday 30 September, as part of National Lottery Cinema Day.
The British Film Industry is supported by National Lottery funding, so to thank players, Lotto tickets purchased for draws between 26th and 29th September can be exchanged for a free adult cinema ticket at Showroom Cinema.
Showroom Cinema is Sheffield’s only independent cinema and shows a range of films from Hollywood blockbusters to classic re-releases and films from around the world. On 30 September, Lotto ticket holders will be able to see Glenn Close in The Wife, which is hotly tipped for this year’s Oscars, Lord of the Rings star Hugo Weaving in Black 47, Skate Kitchen which follows a subculture of girls whose lives revolve around skating, and a special autism friendly scratch’n’sniff screening of Wallace & Gromit: The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit in partnership with Sensoria Festival.
National Lottery players have helped fund thousands of projects across the British film industry, since 1994 they have supported and nurtured new talent through nationwide training & development schemes as well as engaging the next generation through educational initiatives in local schools and at BFI Academies.
Tickets for the screenings are only available on the day from the Showroom Box Office, Paternoster Row, Sheffield. It is anticipated that it will be very popular, so it is recommended that customers arrive early as tickets will be issued on a first come, first served basis.
