If you sign up for Odeon's Limitless Card for £17.99/month, you can watch as many 2D films as you want (it's £19.99 for central London cinemas). There are a few exclusions, see 'more info' for details.
As full-price adult tickets cost between £3-£13 depending on location, this could save you money if you normally see a few films a month. However, you should check prices at your local cinema to make sure it's worth it for you.
Important: You'll be signing up to a minimum 12-month subscription. If you don't want to continue after the 12 months is up, make sure you mark it in your diary to cancel. You'll need to call Odeon on 0333 004 4411 to end your subscription.
Can't be used on Odeon Event Cinema, special or private screenings, BFI IMAX and The Lounge at Whiteleys. You'll need to pay extra for 3D screenings, 3D glasses, IMAX, ISENSE, The Gallery, D-Box, premier seating and any premium screening or seat type.
It's £19.99/month for these central London cinemas: Leicester Square, Leicester Square Studios, Panton Street, Covent Garden, Tottenham Court Road, Marble Arch and Whiteleys Camden.
You need to be 16 or over to sign up to Limitless. The monthly payment is by direct debit.
If you're aged 55+, you can get tickets to Odeon Silver Cinema showings (previously known as Odeon Senior Screen) for £3. See 'more info' below for the prices at different cinemas. You'll also get tea, coffee and biscuits before the film starts.
Odeon says the films selected for Odeon Silver Cinema are aimed at a 'mature audience', aged 55+, but there is no formal age restriction on the tickets.
Tickets for Odeon Silver Cinema are £3 except at the following cinemas:
Ayr, Banbury, Bournemouth Odeon, Bournemouth ABC, Dunfermline, Guildford, Kilmarnock, Kettering, Lincoln and Mansfield tickets are £3.50.
Aylesbury, Bridgend, Chelmsford, Harrogate, Hastings, Newark, Port Solent, Putney, Salisbury, Southend and Tunbridge Wells tickets are £3.95.

If you're a student with an NUS Extra/Totum card you can get an extra 25% off student ticket prices at Odeon cinemas, Mondays-Thursdays. Simply show your NUS Extra/Totum card at the box office to get the discount. Ticket prices vary, depending on location and the time of the film, and there are some exclusions - see full T&Cs.
The offer is only valid at cinemas which offer student pricing. It can't be used with any other offers. It's not valid at Odeon Leicester Square, Odeon Studios, The Lounge at Odeon Whiteleys or BFI IMAX.
Not valid for Premiere Seating, Club or D-Box seats, IMAX, iSense, The Lounge, Gallery performances, Odeon Silver Screen, Odeon Kid’s, Odeon Plus, Odeon Screen Unseen, premieres, special events or any events not open to the public.
At a few cinemas, tickets are even cheaper. For example, they're £1 at Worcester, Telford, Dorchester and Exeter, £1.50 at Dundee, Bristol and Belfast, and in Weston-Super-Mare tickets are £2.
You can either just turn up at the cinema on the day and hope there'll be seats available, or you can book online in advance – where there's a 75p booking fee per ticket. Either way, as long as there's at least one child (12 and under) in your group, the whole family pays the same price - in most cases £2.50 per person.
Screenings are obviously aimed at a younger audience (kids are classed as 12 and under), so you won't find anything above PG certificate.
If you use comparison website Compare The Market*, or if you've used it in the past year, you can get 2for1 cinema tickets* every Tuesday or Wednesday, as well as 2for1 restaurant meals* every Sunday to Thursday for 12 months from the date you use the site to get a credit card, loan or insurance, or switch energy, broadband, TV or phone provider.
The offer expires 12 months after the date of your purchase or switch, not 12 months from when you activate it. Note: Activation can take at least 48 hours, so you have to be patient and may struggle to set it up at last-minute.
How much do I have to spend?
Compare The Market isn't always the cheapest place to buy insurance (see our insurance guides for the top deals), but you can get Meerkat Movies & Meals by spending as little as £1ish on single-trip travel insurance for one person within the UK. For more on this trick, read our Meerkat Movies & Meals blog.
What do I get?
For cinema tickets, you're entitled to one voucher per week (so you can't go both days) and to get it you can either download the Meerkat app (iPhone and Android only) or log in at the website. You can then simply print the code or show it on your smartphone at the box office.
If you fancy an IMAX screening, want to upgrade to premium seats or see a 3D film, you'll be asked to pay the price difference between this and a standard cinema ticket.
For 2for1 meals, you can select a restaurant via the app when you want to dine out as many times as you like Sunday to Thursday (there are some exclusions such as Valentine's Day and Mother's Day) and you'll get 2for1 starters, mains and desserts.
Some restaurants require you to book in advance, while others you can just walk in and say you want to use the Meerkat Meals offer – you'll need to present your digital Meerkat Meals membership number via the app. Take a look at the Meerkat Meals site to see which restaurants near you* are participating.
Where can I use it?
Meerkat Movies is valid at most cinemas across the UK – the big chains (eg, Cineworld, Odeon and Vue) as well as lots of independents – but not all of them. If in doubt, check with your local cinema before turning up.
Meerkat Meals can be used at lots of branches of big chain restaurants such as Pizza Express, Zizzi and Pizza Hut as well as independents.
Important: 2for1 cinema tickets and meals should never be your reason for choosing a product like insurance. Use other sites to check it's a good deal and don't be swayed by freebies that could end up costing you a lot more in the long run.
To qualify for Meerkat Movies & Meals membership, you need to purchase one of the following products via Compare The Market: car, motorcycle, home, van, pet, landlord, life, home/content or travel insurance. You can also qualify by taking out a credit card or loan or switch energy, digital TV or broadband supplier.
You can only hold one Meerkat Movies & Meals membership in any 12-month period.
