New Lincoln cinema will be even more expensive than Odeon

People hoping that competition from the upcoming cinema in Lincoln will push Odeon to lower their prices are in for a surprise.

Residents have long complained about the Odeon’s prices, with many blaming a lack of competition in the city.

As workers start to build another cinema in the Cornhill Quarter, people have been speculating about an upcoming price war.

The Lincolnite has researched prices at Everyman cinemas in the region and found that they’re even more expensive that the Odeon.

Odeon vs Everyman cinema ticket prices

We looked at ticket prices for a new film out in cinemas this week called Glass, the sequel to the 2016 thriller Split, and this is how much different chains were charging for a showing on Friday evening:

  • Everyman York – £14.35 (including £1.85 booking fee)
  • Everyman Leeds – £15.35 (including £1.85 booking fee)
  • Everyman Harrogate – £15.75 (including £1.85 booking fee)
  • Odeon Lincoln – £13 (including £0.75 booking fee)
  • Odeon Luxe Hull – £8.50 (including £0.75 booking fee)
  • Odeon Newark – £13 (including £0.75 booking fee)
  • Odeon Luxe Leicester Square – £16.50 (including £0.75 booking fee)
  • Kinema in the Woods – £7

With Everyman cinemas charging around £15 for an adult standard ticket, it is hard to imagine why they would undercut the Odeon which charges £13 in Lincoln.

That’s all just for a single adult standard ticket, so if you throw in another ticket, parking, drinks and snacks, it can end up being an expensive night out.
