Free tickets on Sunday 30 September - National Lottery Cinema Day

The Electric Picture House, Wotton-under-Edge is offering film fans a chance to catch the latest movies for free at on Sunday 30 September 2018, as part of National Lottery Cinema Day. To celebrate the National Lottery’s support for British film, they’re giving away thousands of free tickets at participating cinemas across the UK.  

Audience members simply need to show a Lotto ticket for draws between 26th and 29th September to receive a free cinema ticket for any film showing that day. Tickets for the screenings are only available on the day from the Picture House box office and only issued on a first come, first served basis. You need to be over 16 years to get a free ticket.

Two films are on offer. The Seagull (12A) at 3pm is an adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s classic play, starring Annette Bening, Saoirse Ronan, and Elizabeth Moss. At a lakeside Russian estate, friends and family gather for a weekend in the countryside. While everyone is caught up in passionately loving someone who loves somebody else, a tragicomedy unfolds about art, fame, human folly, and the eternal desire to live a purposeful life.

At 7.30pm, The Miseducation of Cameron Post (15) follows Cameron (Chloë Grace Moretz) as she is sent to a gay conversion therapy centre after getting caught with another girl in the back seat of a car on prom night. In the face of intolerance and denial, Cameron meets a group of fellow sinners including the amputee stoner Jane (Sasha Lane), and her friend, the Lakota Two-Spirit, Adam (Forrest Goodluck). Together, this group of teenagers form an unlikely family as they fight to survive.

Since 1994, National Lottery players have helped fund thousands of projects across the British film industry.  They have supported and nurtured new talent through nationwide training and development schemes as well as engaging the next generation through educational initiatives in local schools and at BFI Academies. Their support has also helped British filmmakers to create extraordinary films such as The King’s Speech, Suffragette, Viceroy’s House and Pride and work with the BFI to engage new audiences through the BFI Film Audience Network, IntoFilm and the BFI Audience Fund. Every time someone plays The National Lottery they’re supporting British film as well as community projects in their local area.
