The story surrounds an Irish gang who are looking to buy guns, but everything goes wrong in the abandoned warehouse and it turns into a shootout and battle to survive.
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).
NASA was a different place early on the space programme as they were attempting to get a rocket into space. This story shows how three African-American women played vital roles in making that happen, all possessing incredible mathematical skills.
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!

The film takes a look at the life of a boy growing into a man and struggling through different phases of his life, having to contend with the rough neighbourhood in Miami.
The incredible true story of Desmond Doss an American Army Medic serving in World War II and how he won a medal of honour without actually firing from a gun!
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!

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
22nd – Allied
30th – The Edge of Seventeen
Max Vatan is about to experience World War II in many different ways after he falls in love with the woman that is his fake wife during the resistance whilst in Casablanca. Will it be happily ever after when they are reunited in London?
Christian Woolf is a math savant who does not have the best social skills therefore mixing with some very dangerous clients, luckily enough though he can more than look after himself.
