National Lottery Cinema Day is back for 2019 to celebrate support for UK film and filmmakers and The Roses is taking part: you can visit us for free on Sunday 25 August when you show a Lotto ticket for the 24 August draw (purchased in store or online).
Tickets are issued on a first come, first served basis. You need to be over 16 years to get a free ticket.
National Lottery players have helped fund thousands of projects across the UK film industry: since 1994 they have supported and nurtured new talent through nationwide training schemes which have seen individuals go onto to work on world famous blockbusters including Solo: A Star Wars Story, etc.
Since The National Lottery’s first draw took place on 19 November 1994, more than £40 billion has been raised for good causes in the areas of arts, sport, heritage and community. The 25th birthday is a moment to celebrate the extraordinary impact The National Lottery has had on the UK, and to say thank you to National Lottery players for contributing around £30 million to good causes every week.
The National Lottery has made more than 5,350 millionaires but its primary purpose is giving to good causes - over 565,000 individual grants have been awarded across the UK. That’s the equivalent of 200 life-changing projects in every UK postcode district.
Films on Sunday 25 August are:
11am: The Angry Birds 2 Movie
2pm: The Art Of Racing In The Rain
5pm: Blinded By The Light
