A film, a snack and a bus ride all for free this November

3 months ago Tue 7th Nov 2023

We've joined forces with Newport Live to bring you a series of free cinema screenings throughout November.

These classic film events at the Riverfront Theatre are open to all and completely free of charge. To make the event even more accessible and convenient, we are offering complimentary bus travel to and from the theatre for attendees, with proof of their cinema booking.

The free screenings at the Riverfront will feature the following classic films:

  • Singing in the Rain on November 10 at 2 pm
  • Beetlejuice on November 11 at 11 am
  • Sleepless in Seattle (a child-friendly showing), on November 24 at 10:30 am

All screenings will include a free hot drink and snacks. Book here

To take advantage of the free Newport Bus travel, customers just have to show proof of their movie ticket (either digital or paper) to the driver on board.

Our latest No Brainer campaign has been a significant part of our efforts to emphasize the benefits of using public transport in Newport, showcasing the positive environmental impact, cost-effective nature, and benefits to commuters that come with using Newport Bus.

Looking at the traffic everywhere around us and the cost of petrol, travelling into and around the city centre on a Newport Bus is a no-brainer; it’s safer, greener and, for this event, it’s completely free.

These cinema screenings – programmed through conversations with community groups from the Riverfront - are a way to give back to their loyal riders and the broader public. With the closure of Cineworld in Friars Walk, this is also a chance to remind people that the locally run Riverfront Theatre is a real community asset – and just across the road.

Someone from the Newport Bus team will be at each screening for you to ask them questions about their services, raise any concerns, or simply say hello!
