This thread's been going a very very long time and it's great. We want to keep it that way though so as we've had reports it's causing technical problems for some people we've started a fresh new one to help.

Can you post new ones on the new thread please? Thank you!
Shiny new Cinema Codes thread Insert:
There are lots more offers and deals in the Cheap Cinema Tickets and Days Out Deals Notes.

Back to the original post....

Update Note November 2007

This was originally in the weekly email in February 2007. However it got so long it was causing technical problems so we've re-started it here.

What's the deal?

There are a host of hidden companies that allow you (and a friend) to see films for free, and before they're released; often thousands of tickets are available. These agencies work as publicists with the intention of getting people to spread the word about the films they see. It's good psychology, after all if you've seen something for nothing, you may be more favourable to it - meaning your friends may pay to see it.

The Main Agencies

The following are the main agencies, sign up to their email addresses so you'll be notified of the screenings. Be aware that you're likely to get some 'third party' promotional stuff through to the same address, that's the price you pay. You could use a second e-mail address for this sort of material; many freebie hunters do this as a matter of course. You can set up a Hotmail or Gmail account in minutes, just be sure to check it occasionally! (see this week's gmail tip for info)
  • SeeFilmFirst. SeeFilmFirst offers the most tickets, with usually one or two films a month available. It also distributes tickets to third-party promoters, and when there are some tickets left afterwards, it allows you to claim them too (if you're quick enough!)
  • The Film Factory. The Film Factory, which is owned by Buena Vista (Disney), offers similar promotions to members that sign up to its email list.
  • Momentum. MomentumScreenings is the preview screenings wing of Momentum films. There's not so much going on this site, but it's worth logging in intermittently to see if anything pops up.
How do I then get to see a film?

When preview screenings become available, you'll recieve a code in your email which you can use to redeem tickets on the relevant website. Just type it in and follow the on-screen instructions to claim tickets. You'll usually get two tickets for each screening. They're non-transferable, so if you want to swap them you'll need to change the booked name by email.

Many people publish the latest codes for films below (wonderfully kept in order by MoneySaver Heatherw_01), to use them you need to be registered with the above sites anyway. This thread is just for codes, if you want to discuss offers go to Free cinema tickets discussion thread
