People Called Elizabeth Can Get Free Cinema Tickets This Weekend
| Last updated
Anyone whose name is Elizabeth can get a free cinema ticket at Showcase Cinemas today (2 June) and tomorrow (3 June).
Best of all, several variations of the name Elizabeth are accepted.
You can still claim the offer if your name is Liz, Lizzie, Eliza, Elissa, Elisa, Elise, Elsie, Elisabet, Beth, Betty, Bet, Bess, Bessie, Betsy, Betsey, Alisa, Lisel, Liselle, Lesetta, Lib, Libby, Libbie, Tetsy, Tetty, Tibbie, Bethia, Lisabette, Lisabetta, Lisbeth, Elspie, Elspeth, Else, Elisabeth, Elisabete, Lusa, Erzsebet and Lise.
Tickets can be claimed at a screening of attendees’ choice, which is exciting seeing as there’s no shortage of belters showing at the moment, including Top Gun: Maverick and the critically-acclaimed psychological thriller Men.
Showcase Cinemas said in a statement: “We're excited to be celebrating the Royal Jubilee by offering free cinema tickets and snacks for anyone named Elizabeth over the Jubilee bank holiday.”
Yes, you heard right. While free tickets are only being handed out to Elizabeths for two days, anyone who shares a name with Her Royal Highness can bag themselves free popcorn on Saturday 4 June and Sunday 5 June too.
All you need to do is show a valid photo ID when you show up at the box office. What a truly terrible weekend to be named Sarah.
Millions of people across Britain are currently enjoying their first day of a four-day Bank Holiday weekend, with street parties, picnics, parades and now free cinema tickets planned in honour of Queen Elizabeth II's 70 years on the throne.
The official celebrations kicked off today with the Trooping the Colour; a march which takes place annually for the Queen's birthday.
Masses of people turned up to enjoy Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in London, which involved the 1st Battalion, Irish Guards, more than 1,200 officers and soldiers from the Household Division, hundreds of Army musicians and around 240 horses.
Around 7,000 members of the public were able to secure tickets to watch the ceremony from the stands on Horse Guards Parade, while another 7,000 members of the Armed Forces Community invited by the Royal British Legion watched from the seating around the Queen Victoria Memorial.
Of course, the hordes of people photographed outside Buckingham Palace on Thursday will be paltry compared to the queues of Elizabeths forming outside Showcase Cinemas this weekend.
