Cineworld Secret Screenings 1-10

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.
