On the 25th June, pensioners will be able to attend a screening of ‘The Old Vic’s, The Crucible’, which will be a first for the ODEON’s Silver Cinema. At the majority of the company’s UK sites, those over the age of 55 will be able to attend an encore performance when purchasing a ticket for just £6.50, which is sure to be a real treat for all guests. This is a great occasion for making the most of the best discounts for older people, as well as an opportunity to socialise with friends or meet new people.

The American drama to be shown by the ODEON’s Silver Cinema is based on the infamous Salem’s witch trials, and follows the story of a small tight-knit community, which becomes filled with superstition and widespread hysteria. The film is based on a script written by one of America’s greatest playwrights, Arthur Miller, which ‘attacks the evils of mindless persecution and the terrifying power of false accusations’.

The movie features English actor Richard Armitage who has previously been in numerous blockbuster movies, such as The Hobbit trilogy, as well as TV series such as Hannibal and Robin Hood. ‘The Old Vic’s, The Crucible’ is directed by Yael Farber, who is a multiple award-winning director and playwright, previously obtaining accolades from the New York Times and the Guardian.

Captured in 2014 during the play’s performance at the Old Vic in London, this will be an exclusive showing, which will be inclusive of an interval. The screening lasts approximately three and a half hours, with a chance for guests to get tea, coffee and biscuits to enjoy throughout.

The ODEON Silver Cinema also shows a variety of other films during the year, giving the more mature audience a chance to see movies just one or two months after release at a discounted rate.
