Thankfully, many UK cinema chains offer special kids clubs and promotions to make the experience much more affordable and fun for families.

These special screenings feature significantly discounted ticket prices compared to regular showings, and show a wide range of family-friendly films, ensuring there is always something suitable and entertaining for different age groups.

Many cinemas also offer promotions on snacks and drinks during Kids Clubs screenings, making it more economical for parents, and it’s a great way to escape rainy or excessively hot days, with many cinemas offering a comfortable and climate-controlled indoor space.

But, as the summer holidays draw closer - or draw on, if you’re living in Scotland - what do the UK’s major cinema chains offer for families looking for entertainment? Here is everything you need to know.

Cineworld Movies For Juniors are the chain’s discounted weekly screenings of kids' films, taking place on most weekend and school holiday mornings at selected cinemas.

For just £2.50, you can enjoy a variety of lively kids' movies, from animated films to live-action features. Subtitled performances are available at certain locations.

For just a slightly higher price you can also enjoy Premium Movies For Juniors screenings, which showcase new, previously unreleased films at a family-friendly price, starting from £5.50 at many locations.

Note that not all films may be available at your local Cineworld, so check your cinema's website for full listings. All customers aged 16 or over must be accompanying a child, and children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.

Picturehouse’s Kids’ Club screens beloved family classics and modern favourites on the big screen every Saturday morning, exclusively for children and their parents or carers. Tickets from £3.30.

Toddler Time shows preschool screenings on the big screen. Children's tickets are again priced at just £3.30 - but adult tickets are free!

And Watch With Baby allows parents to see the latest new film releases alongside their babies under the age of one. Everyone attending the screenings is a parent or carer with a young child, so you can relax knowing that if your baby cries, it's perfectly normal.

The soundtrack is at a reduced volume and the lights are slightly raised, creating a safe and welcoming environment.
