Tonight is a big occasion at Cineworld. They are celebrating the 100th Unlimited Card holders Screening. Just incase you don’t know anything about them, it is pretty much a preview of an up and coming film before everyone else can see it.
They have included some Secret Screenings as well, you sometimes get a free bag of sweets to go with it.
Tonight we are getting an extended preview of Ghost in the Shell along with Popcorn before the main feature of Free Fire.
I was going to attempt to try and work out how many of the 100 Unlimited Screenings I attended but unfortunately I did not tag them all on my blog. I guess I could work back through old tickets and emails (watch this space, just haven’t had a lot of time this week).
Quite recently I saw something on Twitter about Cineworld doing wristbands with collectable film things to pin on them. So eventually when I went to the cinema last (to see Finding Dory) I bought one for my cousin’s little boy who is 5, he totally loved it!
At the moment they have four different choices in the things you can buy which meant it only cost £2 for the wristband already filled with the “charms” which works out the same as buying them separate at 50p each as you get a free wristband with the first one you buy.
It was a little disappointing they didn’t have anything for Finding Dory, maybe they will add that next? As I told him I would keep a look out for any new ones to add to his collection.
We have a very fast turn around from the 4th Secret Screening which was the very disappointing ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ which was only in December 2015. We have the next Secret Screening all set for Saturday 6th February 2016. I like the Saturday night approach such a great idea!
When booking the tickets you are told 120 minutes for the running time.
Zoolander 2 was the first talked about as being for this screening but it has previews on the same day so that rules that film out!
I haven’t seen any clues released from Cineworld this time . . .
January is pretty much the craziest yet best month in the UK when it comes to going to the cinema, we get plenty of great films that we just know are going to be in and around the awards season obviously heading towards the Oscars. A film that has been talked about a lot since it’s US roadshow has been The Hateful Eight. Obviously the hype as well surrounding the film due to the fact that it is the next Quentin Tarantino film, and something I had in my cinema plans to go and see on it’s UK release this Friday.
As you know I have an Unlimited Card for Cineworld, which incase you don’t know are monthly passes where you pay once and go as many times as you want or possibly can! It really does work out at a fantastic saving over the course of the year. Although sometimes the film choices or lack of wide releases does have an impact if you really are into your films of course. But this is the big one really Cineworld will not be showing The Hateful Eight. This was first discovered and announced last night as people noticed it had been taken off the website/app/booking places for the whole cinema chain!
In the Heart of the Sea
As you probably already know I attend the cinema a massive amount in a year and that is all thanks to having an Unlimited Card at Cineworld and being able to see as many films as I want for £16.90 per month. Which as you can see is an absolute steal for how expensive it can be to go to see the latest releases at the cinema, and pretty much how I manage to see and review the latest films each year. If I didn’t have that card ir would be totally impossible to see as many films as I do!
It was brought to my attention that they have a Movie Quiz you can take part in to find out which 2015 Film Character you are. Plenty of choices to see if your Katniss Everdeen, Ted, Scott Lang (Ant-Man) or Minion Kevin? So it certainly covers plenty of different types of films and genres. Who will you end up with? So head over to the site and take part in the quiz – http://www.cineworld.co.uk/blog/cineworld-movie-quiz
On completing the quiz I got Ant-Man from Ant-Man. Have to say I was very happy with that as he turned out to be such a good character, in a film that I liked a lot more than I expected. The quiz result gives you a few reasons on why you got that character, along with a picture of them as well.
So why not take the quiz yourself and see which 2015 film character you get?
Tell me who in the comments!
Today Cineworld announced that is to host its fourth Secret Screening for Unlimited card holders. It is going to be a 3D film and as you will see the date for the film is bound to cause absolute uproar in people thinking it may just be the new Star Wars film!
This is what Cineworld have had to say so far . . . “What we can tell you is this: the movie is showing on Tuesday 15th December 2015 at 7.30pm at all Cineworld sites apart from Chelsea, Glasgow Science Centre and Cheltenham Screening Rooms.”
I have decided to have a rather early look into what films it could be . . . The fact that we know it is going to be a 3D film certainly does help to narrow it down and for the last couple of weeks in December not many films at all to choose from!
The day is almost here … The third Unlimited members secret screening from Cineworld. The first was a very early preview of Now You See Me and the second was very disappointing with The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (as a preview was scheduled for the week after). So let’s hope that having one of these right before some big blockbusters are going to come out really pays off!
The third secret screening run by Cineworld now has a date! Tuesday 15th July 2014. If you have not heard anything about this before, it is a preview of a film yet to be released but only clues are given out before the screening and you take a risk of what the film may actually be. It is quite an exciting and interesting way of going to the cinema. I have been to the first two secret screenings so therefore looking forward to this one as well as trying to work out what film it might be!
Unlimited Card holders can now book tickets online!
