Kids can get £2.49 tickets at Greater Manchester cinemas this Christmas weekend

The perfect way to hide from the not-so-festive weather outside.

Looking for a last-minute way to entertain the kids this Christmas weekend? Surely it doesn’t get much better than cheap cinema tickets.

The festive season is officially here, and while the big day may only a few days away now, the dreary weather forecast isn’t exactly telling us it’s ‘the most wonderful time of the year’ like the classic Christmas song suggests.

Luckily, families looking to escape the wind and rain this Christmas weekend can head on down to a bunch of cinemas in Greater Manchester to watch a whole host of festive film favourites and some highly-anticipated and critically-acclaimed new releases too.

And the best bit? It won’t break the bank either, as you can even grab the little Mancs tickets for one popular Christmas flick for just £2.49 each.

It’s all part of the festive edition of ‘Mini Mornings’ at Vue cinemas across the UK.


The cinema chain’s ‘Mini Morning’ sessions run all throughout the year, and give both adults and kids the chance to “experience big screen entertainment for a very small price” – with everyone paying as little as £2.49 per ticket and £4.99 for family tickets.

The screenings are every Saturday and Sunday morning from 10am, and every day in the school holidays too.


This Christmas, starting tomorrow (Friday 22 December) and running for a full week – including the extended Christmas bank holiday weekend – families can make their way to Vue cinemas across Greater Manchester to watch the 2011 animated modern-day classic that is Arthur Christmas, and see Santa’s clumsy son get put on a mission with St. Nick’s father to give out a present they misplaced to a young girl in less than two hours.

Also showing over the Christmas break as part of Vue’s ‘Mini Mornings’ are episodes of the beloved animated series PAW Patrol from 29 December.

Aside from the ‘Mini Morning’ screenings, there’s also loads of other festive film favourites and new releases for families to watch before schools return in the new year too – including The Polar Express, It’s A Wonderful Life, and the brand-new Timothée Chalamet-led Willy Wonka origin story, Wonka.
