Ever fancied going to the flicks but then realise you haven‘t got enough shekels to even afford the popcorn? Well, here are a few legal ways to see films for less in

Edinburgh and Glasgow.

There are many illegal ways to get in a cinema. You could, for instance, flirt with the ticket tearer and convince him or her to let you into the area between the cinemas to use the disabled toilet and then spend a day darting between screens. Here at The List we obviously cannot condone that sort of behaviour, so to fit in with this special cheap themed issue, here is a guide to the

best cinema entry offers around.

By logging on to www.cca-glasgow.com and clicking on the special offer icon on the home page, you can sign up for two-for-ones on all film tickets and two courses for £5 in the cafe. These offers are only valid until 30th January, but they will be updated regularly, so

it is worth your while to sign up.
