We are back to the Secret Unlimited Screening and now up to number 13, after Cineworld branching out to a secret screening that was for everyone.
As always remember that while Cineworld list the film as 15 and running time of 90 minutes, this is never the correct running time and 15 is just incase meaning it could actually be anything from a U (Incredibles 2) up to a 15!
Let’s take a look at the possible films that this secret screening could be. It certainly WILL NOT be Star Wars so if you go expecting that please just stay home!
Cineworld announced yesterday that they are doing a Secret Screening that is for everyone and not just for Unlimited card holders. Naming it Secret Screening 1, provisionally with a 15 rating this does not mean the film will actually be a 15 though it can still be U!
Date: Monday 4th November 2019
It is being shown at all cinemas except Glasgow Science City.
Javed is attempting to find himself in Luton in 1987 while attempting to please his father and do best for his family, but wanting to chase his dream of being a writer. When he is introduced to the music of Bruce Springsteen everything will change as he finds his voice with the help of the Boss’ lyrics.
Blinded by the Light
Back in 2013 Cineworld started doing Secret Screenings for Unlimited members and by 2018 we had reached the 10th Secret Screening. In the past week we have had announcements for two taking place in July 2019! So I thought this was the best time to have a look back at the first ten films we got as special previews.
Cineworld have slightly changed the way they used to do them as for the early ones we got clues over the week building up to the screening date, but they stopped doing that and changed the running time and standard age of 15. This meant that we had a child free preview of Incredibles 2 and that was quite frankly outstanding!
Something they usually do in a very clever way is having the screenings not long before a huge release and people get taken in that it is going to be that film (yes, thinking about to Star Wars and it was actually In the Heart of the Sea). Not forgetting that we have also had a preview of a film that went on to become the Best Picture Oscar winner, Green Book. So we have certainly had many different genres in the Secret Screenings.
