If you click a link with an * to go through to a provider, we may get paid. This usually only happens if you get a product from it. This is what funds our team of journalists, and keeps us free to use. Yet there are two crucial things you need to know about this.
- This never impacts our editorial recommendations – if it's in, it's in there because we independently rate it best.
- You'll always get as good a deal (or better) than if you went direct.

Select your nearest cinema online to see a PDF of all the qualifying family films, then you can make your booking online (there's a 70p per ticket booking fee) or at the box office.
Make sure to select a morning weekend slot to take advantage of this offer. You'll see the 'Empire Jnrs' symbol beside the film listing which will confirm you'll get the discount.

Including Cineworld, Showcase. Codes in promo packs of Maltesers, Starburst, etc.Expired
The annual Sweet Sundays promotion is back. You can get a 'free' cinema ticket to use on a Sunday until 25 Aug at participating cinemas. You’ll need to buy promotional packs of certain chocolate and sweets, and enter codes online by 11.59pm TODAY.

Depending on the pack size, you'll see two or five stars. Collect 10 and exchange them for your free cinema ticket. That means you'll need to buy a minimum of two large packs (189g-268g) or five smaller packs (91g-165g).
How do I get the free cinema ticket for £2?
1. Purchase the specially marked packs of chocolate or sweets, which are available at most major supermarkets.
The cheapest options we've unearthed are 196g packs of Skittles Fruits on offer for £1 at Morrisons, and 152g packs of Skittles Crazy Sours on offer for £1 at Asda – pick up two packs (you can mix and match) and you'll get five stars on each pack, enough for a free cinema ticket.
2. Look inside the pack to find a code, which is made up of letters and numbers.
3. Register online at Sweet Sundays and enter the codes by 11.59pm on Wed 7 Aug.
3. Check your inbox for an email containing a cinema ticket voucher code.
4. Redeem your cinema ticket by Sun 25 Aug – show your voucher code at the box office or book online via the cinema's website. No booking fee will be charged, so long as you're not purchasing any standard tickets at the same time.
