There are some great block buster movies coming out this summer but the cost of going to the cinema can really start to add up. If you like the whole experience of going to see a film on the big screen, you will just have to put up with the expensive prices – or do you?

One way that you can cut the cost of seeing all your favourite stars up there on the silver screen is if you look out for the many different schemes that are currently available.

What Is Orange Wednesday?

One of the best deals around at the moment is the Orange Wednesday 2 for the price of 1. This is, in a nutshell, a scheme whereby if you are an Orange mobile phone customer, you can get two tickets for the price one or you can see it as buying one full price ticket and the second person goes for free. The scheme runs every Wednesday – hence the name – and every Orange member is entitled to make a claim.

All you have to do is send a text or call and you will receive a code. Then find out where your nearest participating Orange cinema is.

You make your way over to the friendly box office assistant – the geeky teenager behind the counter – and you give them the code. You are then given your two tickets for the film of your choice.

So if you are a lover of all things Twilight, you can go and get your fill of Edward Cullen, Bella Swan, Jacob Black and the rest of the vampires and werewolves in the latest movie.

Alternatively, if you are a fan of the animated feature films, you can get two tickets and go and see Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang in the new Toy Story film.

Whatever type of film you enjoy, you can go and see it for half price.

Extra Bonus On Orange Wednesday Film Night

Pizza Express has also gotten in on the act. You can make a whole evening out of it by going for a meal and then seeing your film afterwards (or the other way round if you prefer). Pizza Express offer a free starter and 2 meals for the price of 1. This means that you will get one main meal for free. It will usually be the dish that is the cheaper of the two.

For this deal, you need to go to the website and print off the voucher. Once you have done this you jut have to add the code that you received on your phone. Take the voucher and hand it to your waiter or waitress then sit back and enjoy your cheap meal deal.

So if you are looking for a way to get the most out of your hard earned money and you are an Orange mobile customer, get texting today for your 2 ticket deal.

Not An Orange Mobile Network Member?

You can still get this great offer if you simply buy a really cheap pay as you go mobile phone. Get the cheapest one out there, add an Orange sim card and you are good to go once you top up the phone with credit. This is a real benefit if you go to the cinema quite often.
