The promotion reads: "Experts say the UK is soon to witness its hottest EVER days on record and since redheads are often more vulnerable than most to the sun’s rays, we're giving them shelter from the sun inside our fully air conditioned cinema screens to catch the latest blockbusters for no cost at all!

"If you've got red hair, grab a free ticket from the cinema box office for a film showing on Monday 18 and/or Tuesday 19 July, get yourself an ICEE and keep cool at Showcase.

"You'll be able to watch Chris Hemsworth reprise his role as Thor in the Thor: Love and Thunder, experience the roots of rock and roll in the big screen biopic Elvis, laugh out loud with the Minions in Minions: The Rise of Gru, and so much more."

It already looks like the promotion is going to be highly popular.

More than 3,500 people have commented on Showcase Cinema's advert on Facebook.

One happy punter said: "Being ginger has finally paid off."

A second wrote: "Love this, what a nice thing to do."

And another added: "Woohoo, we have 60% redheads in our house."

And some cheeky customers have asked amusing questions about who qualifies for the offer.

One responder asked: "I've got bits of ginger in my beard when it gets longer, does that count?"

Another queried: "I was ginger but I've gone bald. Do I count?"

And a third wrote: "I'm a strawberry blonde, basically a ginger, does that count?"

Well what can we say, it's worth a go!

You can check out the full ticket terms and conditions on the Showcase Cinemas website.
