I spend a lot of time at either the cinema or theatre. You will then find reviews from these films and shows!

Preview: April 2017 at the Cinema

Each month I have now decided to do a preview/up and coming post of the films that are going to be coming to the cinema. So here we go for April in 2017 and which films we can look to go and see, or avoid I guess. *Note this is for UK releases*

Probably not going to be the best month of the year at the cinema but I certainly have two films that I am really looking forward to. Yes, I know that does not sound like many at all but when you take a look at the better films this month has on offer then I am sure you will fully understand.

So take a look at what is coming to a cinema near you this month . . .

March 2017 at the Cinema

I have managed to keep up a good record coming close to January and February but that could also be due to the fact that in March we usually have a slowing down of films, or at least films that I have really wanted to see.

Tyneside Cinema: Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea

For Mother’s Day being a total film geek. I thought it was a great idea to then pass some of that onto my Mam for Mother’s Day this year. So when I received an email from a local independent cinema , the incredible Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle to be precise. That they were doing a special Afternoon Tea for Mother’s Day which included a screening of Mamma Mia! This was at a cost of £25 per person (including a glass of Prosecco)

January 2017 at the Cinema

Always one of the busiest months at the cinema due to the number of releases, especially in the build up to Awards season.

I certainly got my moneys worth (and more) from my Cineworld Unlimited pass which costs £17.40 per month, so seeing 12 films cost me a very little £1.45. When you work it out that way fantastic value for money!

December 2016 at the Cinema

A little late getting this post out due to the end of year posts! A very busy month at the cinema although I do expect this month to be the busiest ever!

I thought it would also be a great idea to highlight the amazing value for money a Cineworld Unlimted Card is at £17.40 per month and seeing eight films that meant I paid £2.17 for each film!

I managed to see the following films:

7th – Sully: Miracle on the Hudson – Review

8th – Snowden – Review

14th – Moana – Review

14th – Office Christmas Party – Review

22nd – The Nightmare Before Christmas – Review

2016 at the Cinema!

2016 was another good year for films released at the cinema and I think the standard was pretty good, I managed to miss a lot of the films that seemed to be regarded as the worst of the year which is always a big bonus!

This time last year (and the year before) I was celebrating a record-breaking total. You know what I have only gone and done it again setting a new record this year, beating last year by a whole 12 films! Which I think is pretty impressive although I seem to be treating it very much like a game now in trying to beat the previous year. Even monthly trying to outdo the year before. I was so close to 80 and I think that will therefore be my target in 2017. Good job I have an Unlimited Card at Cineworld to be able to do this!

 

201678 Films

Previous years at the cinema . . .

2015 – 66 Films

2014 – 62 Films

November 2016 at the Cinema

fantastic_beasts_and_where_to_find_them_ver4_zpsdbh6ugss

I am going to make a monthly post from now on having a little look back at how many films I managed to catch at the cinema. I will also be picking my film and performances of the month!

I thought it would also be a great idea to highlight the amazing value for money a Cineworld Unlimted Card is at £17.40 per month and seeing six films that meant I paid £2.90 for each film!

I managed to see the following films:

6th – The Light Between Oceans

9th – Nocturnal Animals

16th – Arrival

18th – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

22nd – Allied

30th – The Edge of Seventeen

Odeon – Limitless

unnamed_zps1x8k8els

I received an email from Odeon Cinemas yesterday morning announcing that everything is going to change! Eventually another UK cinema chain is following Cineworld’s lead and offering a monthly pass to go and see as many films as possible with a monthly fee. I will admit that I am surprised that this has not happened sooner.

The 7 Worst People at the Cinema

In the last couple of weeks I had my worst ever cinema going experience. Two men sat behind me were incredibly rude, it all started with stupidly copying everything in the adverts. I was just hoping that it would stop for the film, unfortunately not. They kept talking and laughing at things that were not funny (the film was Room for gods sake) as well as constantly kicking the back of my seat and the one next to me. I was alone so did not want to say anything incase it made it all worse and caused a scene in the screen. Massive thanks to Cineworld though for the gift they sent me because of this!

From that it got me thinking about the worst people you come up against when going to the cinema. You know the people you don’t actually understand why they even bothered to come into a dark room and watch a film when they are clearly not even interested a tiny bit in what they are watching.
