Sunderland cinema giving away free ice cream

Have your say

ICE cream lovers can look forward to free scoops.

As part of Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day on Tuesday, Empire Cinema in Sunderland will be giving away free portions of the sweet snack.

The free scoops will be distributed between 6pm and 9pm.

Gordon MacDonald, retail manager of Empire Cinemas, added: “We’re really excited to welcome back the Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day to Empire Cinemas.

“We aim to give customers the ultimate cinema experience and if everyone walks in with a smile because they get a free scoop of ice cream – what could be better?”

Ben and Jerry’s started the annual tradition in 1978 in its first ever scoop shop, and has become a global event.
