How to claim it

To receive the free ticket, individuals will have to provide photo ID (such as a drivers’ license or passport) to confirm their name is in fact Elizabeth.

There are 18 Showcase Cinemas around the country: Greenhithe in Kent, Bristol, Coventry, Derby, Glasgow, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Nottingham, Paisley, Peterborough, Reading, Southampton, Teesside, Bristol, Cardiff, and Glasgow.

Each of these locations are participating in the scheme. The Showcase Cinema de Lux Liverpool is located on the East Lancs Road in Norris Green - L11 9YJ.

If an Elizabeth (or a Lisbeth) went to the Showcase Cinema in Liverpool to see Top Gun: Maverick at 3:40pm today, she could watch it for free - but if she brought a Kate, an Osbert, a James, an Adam, a Jessica, or an Ifunanya, each of them would be expected to pay £10.20 for the privilege of seeing Tom Cruise’s death defying aerial stunts.

The free cinema ticket marketing promotion ends on Friday 3 June, but Elizabeths are eligible for free popcorn on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 as well.
