The Cineworld cinema at The Valley leisure park in Bolton opened in 1998 and offers 15 screens.
Ticket prices are most expensive at weekends and after 5 pm. Discounts are available for children, students, seniors and families.
Movies for Juniors, shown on mornings at weekends and in the school holidays, are also good value. If you manage to stop your kids from buying any sweets and drinks, it’s possible for a whole family to watch a film for just a few pounds.
If you go to the cinema on a regular basis it could be a good idea to look at purchasing a Cineworld Unlimited Card. The monthly fee is roughly the price of around two tickets. It entitles you to watch as many films as you want each month, receive a discount on food and drink, and enjoy special advance screenings.
