I’ll keep this short and sweet. The Vue cinema chain has just launched an offer: two tickets for the price of one to see Moshi Monsters: The Movie.
The voucher can be downloaded here, can be used at Vue cinemas nationwide and is valid until 28 February 2014:
If you don’t know what Moshi Monsters are, they started out as a website aimed at children aged 6-14, with more than 87 million users around the world. From what I can gather, players keep virtual pet monsters in their virtual rooms and bumble around a virtual city playing games and puzzles. The accompanying merchandise sells by the truckload in the UK, and the Moshi Monsters magazine is the country’s bestselling children’s magazine title.
Here’s the official movie blurb: The hugely-anticipated feature film sees Moshlings including Katsuma, Poppet and Mr. Snoodle travel across the weird and wonderful world of Moshi, in a race against time to collect the ransom for an ancient and extremely rare Moshling egg, which has been stolen by the evil Dr Strangeglove. I trust that means more to your children than it does to me.
Please note that to download the voucher, Vue requires you to register on its website. That’s no bad thing, though – and I say that as somebody who hates signing up to things like this. Although I have always considered Vue to be one of the pricier cinema chains, they have a bunch of great deals on at the moment: from a third off adult tickets on Tuesdays, to children’s tickets for just £1.75 on weekend mornings.
Please also note that if you are rubbing your thrifty hands together and thinking about combining this with Orange Wednesday to get three tickets for the price of one, it ain’t happening. The 2-for-1 offer can’t be combined with any other deal. I’ve already checked that one!
However Vue does accept Nectar card points, so if you are a Sainsbury’s shopper you could get two tickets for nothing.
