Calling all our UK-based StudentsCinema Student Standby has finally arrived! We are rolling out our £10 Student Standby tickets to cinemas, bringing world-class opera and ballet to you in your local cinema.

On the day of the broadcast, visit a participating cinema (Odeon, PicturehouseShowcase, Vue, and selected independent cinemas) with a valid Student ID, and you can get two standard-price cinema tickets for just £10, subject to availability.  View a list of participating cinemas.

It really is that simple. Do check that your local cinema is screening Royal Opera House Live productions before you head off, and that they have tickets available. Then, take a tenner, a friend and your valid Student ID, and settle down to watch world-class opera and ballet in the comfort of your local cinema.

So, join us at any of our forthcoming live cinema screenings!

    I am aware that one needs to be a university student to take advantage of the ROH's normal student scheme, but is that also the case for this? I am a sixth form student who would like to know whether I can use my college student ID to buy tickets on this scheme.

    Hi,
    Is it £10 per ticket for £20 for 2 tickets? Thank you!

      Hi Mai,

      It's £10 for two tickets.

    Can a financially challenged adult visiting from Canada purchase a discount seat? Why only students?

    • Chris Shipman (Head of Brand Engagement and Social Media) responded on 16 March 2015 at 12:46pm

      Hi Patti,

      At present the scheme is for students, but we're looking at ways of potentially widening it out.

      It's worth looking at alternative dates and productions for tickets - tickets aren't necessarily as expensive as you may think. This Season more than 200,000 tickets are priced at less than £25. Tickets for both ballet performances start as low as £4. These ticket prices are available to all, not just students.

      Thanks,

    Hi, does this offer count for college students too? I have my college card, and that works for most discounts, but am I eligible for this offer?

    • Chris Shipman (Head of Brand Engagement and Social Media) responded on 20 March 2015 at 3:49pm

      Hi Lottie,

      At present, the scheme is only open to university students, but we're looking into rolling it out further. Watch this space!

    Hello,

    Do both people have to be students or can one be a non student?

    Thank you

    • Ellen West (Head of Creative Studios and Digital Products) responded on 5 May 2015 at 3:07pm

      One can be a non-student.

      Best wishes

    I tried to get the 2 tickets for £10 offer today at the Odeon cinema in Salisbury and was told that this offer ran out at the end of August. Is this a case in all cinemas? Will the offer of 2 tickets for £10 come back again? Thanks

    • Chris Shipman (Head of Brand Engagement and Social Media) responded on 6 October 2015 at 11:34am

      Hi Guy,

      The Student Standby offer is still very much in place with the same terms and conditions (same day sale depending on availability) at selected cinemas. Odeon cinemas are part of the scheme but we are unsure about what happened at this particular venue. We'll get in contact with them to find out why the offer wasn't available.

      Thanks and apologies,

    Staff at Dukes at Komedia cinema, Brighton were selling student tickets for Werther on 28th June 2016, but had to charge more than the 'Two for a tenner Cinema student standby' offer, because they had not been given details of this offer or guidance on how to put a £10 price through the booking system. The lowest price to be found was £15.50.

    According to http://static.roh.org.uk/for/students/cinema-student-standby-sites-201516.pdf Dukes at Komedia, Brighton does participate in the £10 Student Standby scheme as detailed at http://www.roh.org.uk/news/cinema-student-standby-launched-for-uk-based-students .

    Should students be able to get two cinema tickets for £10 for Royal Opera House screenings at Dukes at Komedia, Brighton, particularly Norma on 26th September 2016? If so, what can students say to Box Office staff, that will enable them to find how to issue two student standby tickets at £10 for the pair, please? Would it be possible for Royal Opea House to arrange briefing of the cinema Box Office staff who will be on duty on 26th September 2016, on how to issue the two cinema tickets for £10?

    • Rose Slavin (Former Assistant Content Producer) responded on 9 September 2016 at 12:59pm

      Hi David,
      Thanks for letting us know about this. One of our cinema team members will be in touch with Dukes at Komedia in Brighton to ensure their system is set for the Norma live relay on 26 September.
      Just to be clear, The scheme is a ‘standby’ type offer, so the 2 for £10 tickets are only available on the day of the broadcast, subject to availability.
      Thanks again for bringing this issue to our attention.
      Kind regards,
      Rose
