Cineworld Cinemas Christmas Gift Box. £20

95
Found 6th Nov 2013
It's back! The ever popular Christmas gift box for just £20.

These make great gift ideas or for yourself to save a few bob for future shows.

Inside the box is:
2x Adult 3D Tickets (£12.20 each normally)
1x Voucher for 2 regular drinks and 1 regular popcorn (£9.60)
and 2x Galaxy gift chocolates.

That's a saving of £14 over normal prices.

These normally sell out pretty quickly, so I'd grab one as soon as you can.

Finally, the ticket vouchers start from Boxing Day and run till mid June 2014.

Still sounds expensive! The two for Thursday is your best option. At least that way you get to see 2 films with popcorn and drink (if you want galaxy choc get it for a quid at the supermarket!)

Where are they on the Cineworld website? They aren't under gifts

Yeah they are. The first option on the gifts page is `Gift Cards and Gift Boxes sent by post`.

£4.80 postage? Can you buy these in store or only online?

You can buy in store, I bought one last week

Not much good if you want to watch a newly released 3D film on a Saturday though.

This is a good deal and makes a great present. Heat added.

I can't get past the price of popcorn

Every time I look at cinema prices it's gone up, makes me feel like an old man. They should just cut ticket prices but keep the extortionate sweets, drinks, popcorn etc at current prices (likely where their biggest profit margins lie).

You'd have more in through the door, so more buying all that rubbish.

I went to see Captain Phillips a couple of weeks ago and paid £31 for 2 Imax posh seats. It was a good film but not £30 worth of entertainment when I have a 50" TV, surround sound and as much leg room as I want at home. Won't be doing that again for a while.

Thanks for reminding me about this

Cinema prices are such a rip off. They cannot stop you bringing sweets in that you have bought from a supermarket so save yourself some money and do just that. If you shop at Teco and get club card vouchers you can exchange these for cinema tickets - 3 times the value of the club card voucher.

i tend to bring my own stuff to the cinema... a big bag of pop corn and some drinks.

popcorn and a coke at sainsburys £3 .... at cinema... £9 ....rip-off britain needs to look at that.

Great little business to be had just flogging popcorn outside the cinema in the car park

Thanks for posting but £4.80 delivery is a bit steep!!

All the above being said, Cineworld are the only ones offering the £16/m(ish, I forget how much exactly) unlimited screenings card. If, like me, you go to the cinema more than twice a month and dont bother buying snacks etc it's great. Throw in orange wednesday BOGOF and it's a steal.

I'll be buying this box for my girlfriend so we can see a couple of new releases without having to wait for a quiet Wednesday.

This. Either 4.80 or 8.25 to deliver vouchers??? It's just a few pieces of paper which they could have stuck in an envelope, what a joke.

Being a cinema they obviously couldn't resist the chance to rip people off.

I have an unlimited card. I go like 4-5 times a month. I thought I was saving loads of money, but then I realised how much I was paying for popcorn.

I'd get it from elsewhere but I want hot popcorn, which you can only get from Cineworld.

I take it back, that's ludicrous o_O
However I am going to a Cineworld today so I will see if these can be purchased in store.

I don't really go to the cinema any more. It only takes a couple of morons to ruin a screening, and what are the chances of being in a room of 300 people and none of them being morons? Pretty slim in my experience.

Then there's the fact that my lounge isn't offering that much less than the cinema anyway. And it's sooo much cheaper for a glass of coke. And these days there's the babysitting, which doubles the cost of any night out, regardless.

The only reason I go to the cinema these days is to see something I can't get at home, and so at best the cinema is a place where they're holding hostage something I would otherwise spend less money and effort to watch.

My Dad complains about how the cinema isn't what it used to be, because when he was a kid they had what were effectively TV shows on every Saturday morning and they cost pennies.

But that ended when TVs became ubiquitous, and those Saturday morning serials stopped. And you know what, it was no great tragedy. I don't see why we should bemoan the fact that Home Cinema has improved so much that these places have nothing to offer any more.

Surely it only remains hot for 10 mins or so after being served? Then you have the same cold popcorn as the person who bought theirs from a supermarket.

Do what me and my flatmate do: Make a bag of microwave popcorn just before we set off, and hide it in her handbag

Sneak a microwave in under your jacket.

I'm an Unlimited holder too and I can't remember buying anything from the snack bar there. Although it helps that there's a Home Bargains and B&M within 500 yards of the cinema I go to.

Go on a Wednesday if your tight problem solved

Cheapskates who only visit the cinema on days when they get a free ticket shouldn't vote this cold because some of us are happy to go and pay for both tickets on a Friday or Saturday night and not be limited to a midweek night out. This is therefore a good price. Voted hot.

I have an unlimited card and go around 6-7 times per month, so it works out about £2.50 a time. You can't beat the immersion of seeing something on a big screen, particularly in 3D as they aren't the same at home, even with a 55 inch tv and home cinema setup. For example, I saw Thor: The Dark World last night, which was excellent. We hadn't seen the first one, so watched it on Blu-ray 3D last week and it was nothing like the same experience.

Thinking back over the whole of this year, I can only remember one occasion where we were disturbed in the cinema too. I clearly don't go to the same one as you!

I go with my mates on a weds and one time we saw Two Guns and every time Denzel shot or punched someone this guy sat right behind us would shout 'God Damn!', it became intolerable so my mate shouted 'God damn shut the fck up'. It worked.

Sounds just like my experience when I went to the cinema in America, never again they never shut up through out the whole film and started whooping and cheering at the end. Very strange time!

It's the film companies that get the majority of the ticket sales, i think around 90'odd% of the cost of a ticket goes to them, after that I dunno what makes up the rest of the % but it's the food and drinks they make their profits from, hence the reason why they are extortionate

Surely the truly obese sit at home every night watching Netflix rather than going out.

No where near that, it's closer to 50%.

The prices are expensive because you are a captive audience, same as theme parks, airports, stadiums and numerous other places offering convenience foods.

As opposed to healthy people who go to the cinema? And buy buckets of popcorn? Hmm warped logic here. You don't have to stay in every night but a drive to the cinema doesn't count as exercise tubby.

I go once or twice a week and rarely see obese people there (maybe the seats are too narrow).

Kinda sad you resort to name calling to try to win an argument. You should get out more and learn some social skills.

Bit puzzled why you are trolling a cinema thread when you clearly don't like going to them.

Let's remember certain costs involved in running a cinema. Heat, water, electricity. All of this needs to be provided and is not free. If you go to do a ****, you need toilet roll to wipe your ass. That cost's money.

What I find annoying are people who moan and moan about the price of the cinema. Compared to other leisure activities, it's fair. YOU ARE NOT forced to spend anything else. I'm fat, but I find it very easy to sit on my ass for 2 hours without the need to stuff my fat face with overpriced snacks.

POSTAGE IS £4.80?!?!

I go cinema loads and I'm healthy and in shape. I don't see any obese people at my local cinema.

I'm no mug. Paid £120 upfront for 13 months unlimited pass and never buy anything from the snacks counter.

I even get free parking for 3 hours in Birmingham if I'm visiting Broad Street whether I go the cinema or elsewhere.

When will people learn that if you drop the price of things, more people come. I've been to the cinema about 4 times over the past year, mainly down to the fact that it costs a fortune I used to go weekly. For myself, my wife and my daughter it costs around £25 just to get into a movie, pre booking online. Add to that the price of sweets, popcorn, drinks and fuel to get there, it costs a lot, every time we've been in, the theatre has been practically empty. Me and my mates went to see 'Skyfall' at an 8.00pm showing on a Thursday in the second week of it's release, there was only around 10 people in there including four of us.

For us, watching a movie on the big screen at home is just as good, especially when you know how much you've saved.

Heat Added for the deal, anything that saves money at the cinema deserves it, but, still think £20 + delivery if ordering online is a lot.
