Military Wives, starring BAFTA winner Kristen Scott Thomas and BAFTA nominee Sharon Horgan, tells the inspirational true story of the Military Wives Choirs, a charity bringing women closer through singing. The film follows a group of women from different backgrounds who come together to support each other whilst their partners are away serving in Afghanistan. Through life’s most difficult moments, they find themselves becoming part of a global movement.
The official premiere, which will be broadcast across all Showcase Cinemas and Showcase Cinemas de Lux, will be hosted by Lorraine Kelly and includes a live performance from the Military Wives Choirs.
Showcase Cinemas is also offering all military personnel two for one tickets when the film opens on March 6. Military ticket prices start from £7.50 and are available at the box office.

“Alongside the release of the film, we’re proud to offer two for one tickets to all military personnel, rewarding their heroic efforts and service to the country.”
