National Lottery Cinema Day is an event from Camelot and the BFI where Lotto players can claim a free cinema ticket (at participating venues). Lotto players will be able to book their tickets in advance via an NLCD website run by ShowFilmFirst.
Camelot will then reimburse venues for the free tickets (up to an agreed maximum value).

This year will expand to include a national multiplex chain alongside Film Audience Network (FAN) members across the UK. If you are not a FAN member (or are not sure), please contact your local Film Hub to find out about becoming a member and the other benefits being a FAN member brings.

As well as being able to offer your audiences free tickets, there will be hundreds of venues taking part all across the UK, supported by a national press and media campaign. It could be a great opportunity to raise your profile, reach new audiences and encourage back infrequent attenders.
