Gerald Jones MP visits Vue Merthyr Tydfil ahead of National Cinema Day, as the Venue celebrated with £3 tickets

Gerald Jones MP made a visit to Vue Merthyr Tydfil last week ahead of National Cinema Day.

Gerald met with the Vue management and staff and received a full site tour.

On National Cinema Day itself, Vue Merthyr Tydfil (and all Vue UK and Ireland) celebrated the national day by reducing the price of all tickets that day to £3.  Vue showcased the latest releases including the sky-high perils of Fall, a new thriller about two best friends stuck in a dangerously high situation, as well as some other of the summer’s greatest hits including sci-fi chiller Nope and Idris Elba’s wild tale Beast.

Recent family favourites were also available for film fans of any age to enjoy including animated adventures with the DC League of SuperPets and Minions: Rise of Gru.

Cinematic classics, both old and new, returned to the big screen to celebrate National Cinema Day. Relive some all-time sci-fi greats such as E.T. The Extra Terrestrial and Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan or even the beginning of Daniel Craig-era James Bond in Casino Royale.

Marvel favourite Spider-Man also swung back onto the big screen with No Way Home (The More Fun Version) featuring additional scenes exclusive to this new release. Customers also had one more chance to catch Tom Cruise in the biggest film of the year so far, Top Gun: Maverick.

Toby Bradon, General Manager of Vue Entertainment in the UK and Ireland said: “National Cinema Day is a fantastic celebration of the unique experience a visit to the big screen can provide, and we are proud to be a part of it. There’s no other way to completely immerse yourself in brilliant stories than on the big screen.

National Cinema Day is an annual event across the UK which celebrates UK cinema and cinema-going, the country’s most popular out-of-home leisure activity.
