Did you know every time you play The National Lottery you’re supporting British film as well as community projects in your local area?

To say THANK YOU some of our Community Cinemas across Dumfries and Galloway are inviting you to enjoy a free film in Lotto on Sunday 30 September 2018 to be a part of the National Lottery Cinema Day. All you need is your Lotto ticket purchased for draws between 26 and 29 September to get a free adult cinema ticket on National Lottery Cinema Day.

National Lottery players have helped fund thousands of projects across the British film industry, since 1994 they have supported and nurtured new talent through nationwide training & development schemes as well as engaging the next generation through educational initiatives in local schools and at BFI Academies. Their support has also helped British filmmakers to create extraordinary films such as The King’s Speech, Suffragette, Viceroy’s House and Pride and work with the BFI to engage new audiences through the BFI Film Audience Network and the BFI Audience Fund.

Tickets for the screenings are only available on the day from each venue – tickets will be issued on a first come, first served basis.

A full list of venues and films will be published here just as soon as we finalised the details.
