For me, the main problem with having the Unlimited card and seeing a lot of films is this:

"Puss in Boots, a ginger tomcat who wears a cavalier's hat, spies a spot of light on the ground and chases it."

(Formerly: "Top Cat tosses an old woman into the air to prevent her from being hit by a giant, freewheeling cable drum. She whacks him.")

They've really drummed that into your head haven't they?!


I've found lately that the trailers seem to come on quicker (after normal ads) and you thing you're nearly there but then all the Cineworld related ones, coke, piracy, Bacon etc seem to be getting longer.

I do prefer the Kevin Bacon ones to the old ones that hijacked a film trailer (Rio, A Team, The Sweeney etc). They always confused me at first thinking, "oh, more trailers, oh wait, no."

I received a new Cineworld Unlimited card today. It was all black and had my name on it and on the front in bold red lettering in capitals was the word 'unlimited'. Can someone please tell me if this is my Cineworld Premium Unlimited card?

The letter that came with it just said it was a replacement card and it didn't have my photo on it either which is included on the original Cineworld Unlimited card, so i'm slightly confused. Can anyone advise?

Is anyone still waiting to get a new card? I had the email about 5 months ago but still no card. I've tried ringing but it's engaged.

It can't be engaged constantly surely?

I've been walking to the Cinema, collecting the tickets early then going to the bar for a drink. With the 25% Unlimited Premium discount, it works out cheaper than the pub
Any idea if they let you use the "buy 4 drinks for 10" deal and still get the Unlimited discount?

Even without that, I'm not complaining at paying under 3 a pint in London!

I would say yes. They currently have a 2 for 4 offer on confectionery, and the discount was applied to the offer.

Cineworld are doing a secret screening for Unlimited customers on Monday 17th June 2013. You have to book tickets using your Unlimited card. No idea what it is...they show the running time of the film, but they've changed it many times! It's ranged from 119 minutes to 153 minutes that I've seen!

However it has provided a problem...I have reserved a ticket for this, and also want to reserve a ticket for Man of Steel 3D IMAX...but I can't because you can only reserve one ticket at a time...which is bloody crap.

i was under the impression that you could book one normal booking and one unlimited screening as well,might be worth checking with your cinema

Does anyone know what the secret screening is? It's most likely to be Man of Steel or World War Z, right?

Man of Steel is out Friday. It's not that. It's The Lone Ranger.

I think most people are guessing either Pacific Rim or The Lone Ranger for the secret screening!

I can't see it being World War Z as its out on the Friday after the secret screening so it would be very unlikely to have a film that's due out so close to the secret screening.I would be very disappointed if it turned out to be World War Z!

It's Now You See Me.

Cineworld have been posting clues on Facebook. Monday's was "Who is he? He shrugged and moved from one land to another. However there are some who never left and he stood alone..."

Atlas Shrugged is an American novel by Ayn Rand. Jesse Eisenberg's character in Now You See me is called Atlas.

The rest of the clue refers to other Eisenberg movies;
and moved from one land to another = Adventureland/Zombieland
some who never left = Some Boys Don't leave
and he stood alone = Solitary Man.

Well you worked out the clues very well. You was spot on.

I was in London last weekend and discovered that 15.90 unlimited cards can be used in the west end cineworlds for a fee of 2 per film

Useful if you're not in London often enough to warrant the extra 3 monthly fee to include the west end in your subscription

Even the lad selling me the ticket thought it was about time this had happened

It's great. Pays for itself if you watch more than two movies a month.

I dont go that often right now, owing to the expense, but at that price id go see a lot of stuff and see if i liked it, rather than only seeing those few things that i consider "must see".

With a card you change the way you take cinema into your life though. You stop going in order to see a film and start seeing a film in order to go. You will try new actors, genres and generally films you would never have tried before.

Another secret screening announced, for the 25th November. Early guesses? I'll go for a tie-in with the "secret" bit and go for that Walter Mitty film they previewed before Thor. Anyone else?

Hmm... A whole month would be the earliest I have seen. That would be decent though.
