By now we are all struggling with the sweltering heat that has besieged the UK for the last couple of days. But, although we are all struggling with the heat, spare a thought for ginger people in our fair county.
One of the UK’s biggest cinema chains, Showcase Cinemas, has done just that and is offering redheads a place to escape the heatwave.
The temperature has hit up to 39 degrees in some parts of Yorkshire with the previous record in the UK being 38.7, which means hot sticky weather with most places having no air conditioning.
The weather in Leeds is set to hit a whopping 39-41 degrees over the next 48 hours, with the south-facing temperatures above 40 degrees.
Showcase cinema has recognised that ginger people may be struggling with this type of temperature o instead has offered redheads who tend to be more vulnerable to UV rays free entry to their cinemas.
The cinema chain said: “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.”
