Father’s Day - where to take your dad for free
To give back to dads across the UK, Showcase Cinemas has announced that all father figures can sit back, relax, and watch a film for free. Families taking advantage of this special offer will be able to watch brand new releases including superhero sequel Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse, The Flash and action-packed Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts.
All guests need to do to qualify for the offer is purchase a family ticket for four people either online or at the box office from their local Showcase Cinema. The family ticket is discounted by 25% for film screenings on Sunday, meaning dads can visit free of charge.
Dads can bag a free, fun family day out this Father’s Day, as all father figures nationwide get free entry to LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham or Manchester on the day.
For the price of just one entry ticket, a dad and his mini builder can have fun on two exciting rides, take part in building challenges, enjoy a 4D cinema experience and burn off some energy in a themed soft play area.
To redeem the free ticket, customers need to purchase their tickets for the day on the website and select the additional ‘dad free’ option.
