A Cineworld Unlimited membership allows you to watch movies all year and offers loads of other amazing benefits for a set monthly subscription cost.
I love a good movie and I used to go to the cinema all the time. Unfortunately as time went on the cost of a cinema ticket was an expense I just couldn’t justify on a regular basis.
Luckily that changed a few years ago with the launch of the Cineworld Unlimited Card scheme. At first glance, the Cineworld Unlimited membership looks like there is a mega catch but, to be honest, they have created a corker of a deal!
So imagine being able to see any film at your local Cineworld for a set monthly subscription cost. Well you can with a Cineworld membership card!
You can sign up for a membership card in just a few minutes and a Cineworld card will be sent to you in the post.
However, you don’t need to wait for your card to arrive! You can print off the confirmation page or confirmation email or, if you’re out of printer ink, you can just take your smartphone with you to the cinema and present your temporary number at the box office.
You could even opt to get your temporary pass by text message and if you want to use it before your membership card arrives, then simply take your phone to the cinema along with some form of photo ID.
You really can sign up and the start watching films straight away!
How much is Cineworld Unlimited?
You can pay for your Cineworld card either monthly (for 12 months) or in one lump sum and then us it at any time to see as many films as you want.

Anything else I need to know?
There are a few things to keep in mind with this membership.
The Cineworld membership card allows you a seat at a 2D screening. If you want to watch 3-D screenings then there will be a small uplift cost of £1.60 to pay.
One thing to be aware of is that you can only watch one film at a time. So, if you’re watching a film and it;s not the greatest, you can leave but you can’t go in to see another film until the first one has finished.
With the few limitations in mind, also remember that you can also get:
Free Unlimited Premium
After 12 months of using the Cineworld membership, you are able to get a FREE Unlimited Premium upgrade which gives you access to free 3D films and boosts your discount to 25% off cinema snacks & drinks!
12 months free Cineworld Unlimited with refer a friend
When you’ve got your Cineworld card then you can start referring friends and you both get a reward.
You need to apply for a recommend a friend code and 12 of your friends, colleagues, neighbours or the postman can use it to become a member. When they sign up, you both receive one months of FREE Cineworld Unlimited membership! Cool hey?!
So remember that 12 friends can sign up – with the potential or you to earn 12 months of free unlimited Cineworld membership! That’s a whole year of totally free movies 🙂
If you go or plan to go to the cinema regularly, or are looking for a new past time that won’t break the bank then this is for you. However, if you aren’t going to use it then please don’t sign up as it’ll turn into a subscription that you’ll never use.
If you don’t have a Cineworld near you, how about an Odeon? With the Odeon Limitless card you can get similar cinema savings.
