UK cinema offers free entry to redheads… who’s got the hair dye?

A cinema chain in the Uk is offering free movie tickets to redheads to get them out of the sun and we’re buying a box dye and a one-way ticket to London.

During a recent heatwave, cinema chain Showcase has offered free entry to red-haired people to get them out of the sun.

For some crazy reason *ahem-climate-change-ahem* temperatures have risen to record levels in the UK with the 18th and 19th of July set to reach 40C for the first time in history.

For those days only, Showcase has announced that redheads, who are more sensitive to the sun, are welcome to see any film at any Showcase theatre for free.

One ticket per redhead will be able to be claimed each day at local box offices and refunds will not be given for previously purchased tickets.

The cinema’s general manager Mark Barlow said: “While the UK enjoys some much-needed sunny weather, we know how hard some people find the heat.

“That’s why, to tackle the heatwave, we’re offering redheads free entry to our cinema screens this Monday and Tuesday, so they’ll be able to enjoy some of the amazing films on offer in the comfort of our air-conditioned cinema screens and ensure they stay protected from the sun.”

What a legend.

Hopefully, this is enough to keep the fair-skinned from crisping up.
