What are cinema discounts and how do I access them?

You can save up to an epic 40% on cinema tickets, any day of the week, with Portfolio Perks.

As a Key Portfolio employee, you can buy discounted tickets for ODEON, Cineworld, Vue, Showcase, Reel Cinemas, The Light Cinemas and Picturehouse cinemas across the country. And it’s not just you who gets to benefit – you can pick up cheap tickets for your family and friends as well!

Some cinema chains will even give you discounted drinks and snacks too.

These discounts are really simple to access. Here’s a step-by-step process:

  1. Log in to your account, click Portfolio Perks and head to the Cinemas section.
  1. Choose your cinema chain, location, number and type of tickets and, if available, any drinks or snacks you want. At this stage, you don’t need to know what film you want to see.
  1. Confirm the email address you’d like your tickets to be sent to, and pay for your purchases.
  1. Check your inbox for an email containing your tickets (it’s super quick). The tickets come in the form of a code – there will be one code for each ticket (or drinks/snacks deal). Write these codes down or save them on your smartphone.
  1. When you’re ready for your cinema trip, present your codes at the box office and the staff will exchange them for tickets to a film of your choice. Or, with some chains, you can use them online (for a small booking fee). Take your drinks/snacks codes to the concession stand and do the same.

Ticket codes can be purchased close to the start time or far in advance, so they’re ideal whether you’re planning ahead or already standing in line at the cinema.

Once you’ve bought them, the tickets are usually valid for around a year. Other terms and conditions apply for each chain, which we recommend reading. You’ll see them when you log into Portfolio Perks to purchase tickets.

Oh, and if you lose the email containing your cinema code, don’t worry. You’ll find a copy of any cinema codes that you’ve purchased under the Cinema section of the Portfolio Perks app.

Enjoy the show!
