How to qualify for the deal

To take advantage of this offer, guests will need to purchase a family ticket of four from the box office at their local Showcase Cinema or from the Showcase Cinemas website.

The family ticket is discounted by 25% for film screenings on Sunday, meaning mums can visit free of charge.

"Going to the cinema has always been a much-loved family pastime, so we wanted to celebrate motherly figures nationwide on this special day by offering them a complimentary cinema experience.

"We can’t wait to welcome families to our cinemas this Mother’s Day, so they can put their feet up and enjoy the latest releases on the big screen.”
