Cinema Discounts

The OU Club have negotiated an agreement with Filmology to allow staff to access savings on cinema tickets

  • You can purchase cinema tickets at up to 40%* discount on the box office prices at over 300 cinemas throughout the UK and Ireland. (max 10 tickets per months, purchased in twos but can be used individually)
  • This is open to OU Staff only (including retired staff)
  • Discounts available at Cineworld, Odeon , Empire, IC Cinemas and Showcase (Picture House and other Independent cinemas).
  • Ecodes and paper vouchers (as we sold before) available at Cineworld.  (Please note Cineworld charges 50p to book online with an ecode, you can use the ecode at the cinema with no booking fee)
  • Discount (currently 26%) on unlimited Cineworld card
  • Up to 50% discount of popcorn and drinks (max 10 vouchers per month) at Cineworld.

To become a member, please register using this FORM.


Once registered you will then need to pay £1.50 to the Open University Club, Drop in sessions will be advertised on a regular basis.

PLEASE NOTE: YOU WILL BE INVITED TO A DROP IN SESSION IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE. PLEASE DON'T EMAIL The OU Club or OU Social box, as we will be in touch as soon as we can.

Once you registered with the OU Club and paid, you will be issued with a 16 digit code by email within 1 week. You can use this code to log in and register on the Discount site. 

This code will be valid for 1 month, once registered on the site you will have 1 years worth of access to the discounts.

If you want to continue your membership after 1 year, we will email you to request the next payment (£1.50 maybe subject to some inflation) and your access will be maintained. If you don't pay your access will be removed to the discount page and you will need to re-register to get access to the discounts.


For a full explanation of booking process please ensure you read the FAQs on the Discount site ONCE you have received your code. It's that easy, even your OU Club Committee members made it work!!!
