Is a cineworld unlimited card worth it? I'll be going back to uni in September and i pass a cineworld everyday, and i'd love to go to the cinema more often. Is there anyone on here that has one?

I have one. There's a massive fuss going on atm (through twitter and facebook), because Cineworld have just re-introduced allocated seating and booking fees. The majority of unlimited users are very unhappy, because they've also announced that they're trialing premium seats, that will be (obviously) the best ones in each screen and cost extra. I'm debating not renewing mine (it's due at the end of the month). The price is also set to go up.

If you can get regular use, it's a very good deal. I went 3/4 times a week all last summer. However, once uni/work got going, I found that I didn't really have too much spare time to go. Still, I'd probably recommend it.

I considered getting one but because I was going to so many showfilmfirst screenings using tickets I found on this site, I didn't see how the unlimited card would be worth it. Paying for the films I didn't get preview tickets for across the year still averaged out cheaper (especially when you factor in cheap cimena days and Orange/EE Wednesdays). You might want to weight out how much you will actually use it.

Yes its worth it, been some suprisingly good films so far this year.
Make sure you go in half an hour after the advertised start time, so you can miss the ads, otherwsise it become unbearable
Some resteraunt let you have two meals for price of one using the cineworld card, details is on web site

They can allocate you a seat, but i just sit where i want, its a load of nonsense. It slows down the queue when buying tickets, and when they say do you want front , middle or back i am fuming inside, but polite and just say middle which means you can have any row as long as you sit in the middle of the row :)

I completely agree it's stupid. Cineworld Ilford stopped a showing last week 20 mins into the screening to check that people were sat in their designated seats. Seems that each cinema will enforce as they wish. My local (Bolton) have said they have to do allocated, but after people are seated they can move where they want, which is the sensible way of doing it really.

I have one of these passes, Used to be a lot better, Only used to be £9.99 when i first had it.

Also, Orange Wednesday's you get an extra ticket if you have a pass.

I've had one for a couple of years - they are good value if you go to the cinema a lot and don't want to be restricted to only going on Bargain Tuesdays or Orange Wednesdays etc to save money - it's about £10 to see 1 2D film at my cinema now so it soon pays for itself if you go twice a month or more. The novelty has worn off a bit now though and I haven't actually been to the cinema since the World Cup started though there hasn't been anything released since then that I really wanted to see, and I haven't experienced the allocated seating change yet as it's only recently come in.

More like go half an hour early so that you can get the best seats imo.

These are their reasons. ". However, whilst remote ticketing channels provide a valuable service to our customers, managing and continuously improving these services is costly. As a result Cineworld is restoring a fee for booking tickets online and by phone, which brings Cineworld in line with other cinema chains. Improving customer experience remains our number one priority."

The more people who complain and make a fuss over this, the more likely Cineworld are to do a U-turn......

You can sit where you want, just go in 30 minutes after advertised 'start time' and pick an empty seat.

My wife and I have one and they work out great if you go at least twice a month. We tend to do so because we know we have the cards. We always take our 11 year old so and to make sure he doesn't sit behind a giant we tend to book his ticket as an isle type seat. The number of times we find someone else ignoring their seat numbers and sat in seats we have booked is really annoying ... they are usually arrogant with it when asked to move too. So I am not against allocated seating really.
