Cineworld Secret Screening 14 – Possible Films

Cineworld are planning on starting 2022 off with a lovely treat for Unlimited card holders with the 14th Secret Screening! I do love nothing more than trying to guess which film and I think I have managed to have two right guesses.

Just a reminder for anyone who is going off the 15 rating and 90 minute run time that is listed on the Cineworld listing, that is never right at all they do that to try and keep it more of a secret with what the film could possibly be.

Date: Wednesday 5th January 2022

Is James Bond the saviour of UK Cinemas?

No Time To Die was originally meant to be released in April 2020 and was the first big film to announce it was pushing back to November 2020 but as things went on and we had the cinemas closed for months and then an attempt at reopening in the July 2020 didn’t fully go to plan for all chains with Cineworld quickly closing once again and rumours surrounding if they would ever actually be able to reopen.

Odeon made a longer attempt to stay open but considering no new releases and people being somewhat scared to actually attend the cinema they had to close again as well, it was actually very sad times wondering if Cinema would survive the pandemic. With some companies releasing films straight to streaming services and charging cinema prices to rent and watch at home it was a worrying time for those of us who love nothing more than attending the cinema.

Cineworld Secret Screening 2 – Take 2!

Date: Wednesday 11th August 2021

Technically this is the 14th Secret Screening that Cineworld are going to have but they are calling it Secret Screening 2 just to make it even more confusing. As always when a Secret Screening is announced I like to put together some guesses for what the film could be.

Disclaimer: My track record for guessing is pretty poor but I still like to try and see if I can list the film that it ends up being in these posts. It’s just a little bit of fun after all!

*The running time listed on the Cineworld site is not correct its just a guide*

2 Tickets Per Person to Save UK Cinema Sector

Finance Experts Company Debt released exclusive insights and data on the Cinema Sector.

Based on an average cinema price of £6.75, the UK Cinema industry needs to sell 141 million tickets this summer to make up the deficit caused by COVID-19.

In total, with a decline of 132,072,886 admissions in 2020, the British cinema industry has been amongst the worst industries hit by COVID-19.

The UK Cinema Association reported a box office decline of 955.1 million GBP in 2020.

Few could have predicted the 80% slump in box office revenues last year, resulting in a £2.2billion loss for the Cineworld group.

Everyone in the UK would have to buy two tickets to bring the industry to pre-covid levels.

Cineworld: Reopening May 19th 2021!

Wednesday 19th May 2021

That date will forever go down as one of the greatest of all time, after the cinema closures for the majority of 2020 and then almost six months of 2021 I am utterly excited to be able to head back to my favourite place. The cinema is the place that I have missed the most during the different lockdowns and being on furlough for a period of time. Not just for new film releases but for my mental health of being able to switch off and truly just enjoy sitting in the dark, with the gigantic screen, the surround sound and fully getting lost in a film. No phone to distract me and just witness everything unfolding.

Unfortunately I am having to wait until Thursday 20th for my first trip though as I have managed to get tickets for the Newcastle game on the Wednesday with a 6pm KO I really don’t think I can combine the two things. But I will be there Thursday and Friday, for Mortal Kombat and then Godzilla v Kong. Of course my Sunday afternoon/early evening trips will be back as well.

I truly feel sorry for anyone who does not enjoy going to the cinema and watching films as they have no idea at all how utterly exciting this really is, especially for getting some talk going around new releases and quite frankly writing new reviews for films seen on the big screen is going to be utterly amazing again for Let’s Go To The Movies. As much as I have been thankful for the different streaming services, nothing at all is better than going to the cinema.

#FridayFakeCinemaClub – Cinema Intro!

That’s right I have tried to find different opening Cinema themes or videos that they use prior to the film starting in our favourite places. With a few people going more to Cineworld or Odeon, that must have something to do with the monthly passes right? But I have tried to include as many UK cinemas as possible. Please watch this before our 8pm start for the films each week #FridayFakeCinemaClub

The Cinema and My Mental Health

Today is World Mental Health Day and I thought I would get involved with this blog post about my own mental health and how I find Cinema to be a fantastic way to keep it under control and a release from not only the world and life but from myself as well.

Considering Cineworld have just closed across the UK and Odeon are operating some cinemas on a weekend only, it seems even more appropriate to be talking about this. During the lockdown and period of time I was on furlough I also lost the best thing to keep me calm and at times sane. The cinema. While that might seem a little bit dramatic and over the top, it is the place where I truly switch off from everything and not look at my phone for a few hours. Something that is difficult when you are just at home.
