£3 tickets: any film, any time

See the best for less

Our fantastic 25 & Under scheme offers 16 to 25-year-olds £3 tickets to any film, any time. Whether you’re an emerging filmmaker seeking inspiration from our film and TV seasons, or a film buff hungry for previews, there’s something for everyone at the BFI.

£3 tickets can be purchased on the day at BFI Southbank or on the BFI website for any screening, special event or preview: from big screen classics to on-stage events with directors and actors.

As long as tickets are available, you can get one for £3.

All you need to do is:

  1. Check your details on your existing BFI account or create a new account.
  2. Verify your account at the BFI Southbank box office on your next visit by showing your photo ID (top tip: arrive nice and early during peak times).
  3. You’re all set! Click on the Login link in the top navigation bar, then go through to book as normal and a £3 ticket option will appear on the seating plan. Check what’s available each day after midnight and book your £3 tickets online — or pop along to the box office on the day as before!

Our 25 & Under scheme is free to join, so sign up today.
