Southend have put their prices up in time for Star Wars. A peak 3d and premium seat is a hilarious £19.25. Absolute shambles and West End of London prices.

We definitely need a competitor to come in so that it drives the prices down.

The only competition we've got that theoretically should help drive prices down is independent cinemas, but not enough people visit them (and they can only hold so many). Us in Essex for instance have the Canvey cinema where its £4.50 a film weekdays and £5 at weekends.

We have a local-ish Vue ( which used to be £5 a ticket but not anymore ) and a Cineworld but both of these charge similar prices.

We are trying out a local independent cinema - fully licensed throughout, reclining seats with tables. Prices are about £4 cheaper than Odeon.

Yours sounds nice, ours was a bit tatty but they seem to be doing that up now, reupholstering the chairs (also there's a screen with a patch on it, and another one you could hear trickling water, so that's 2 good screens left of the 4).

With he Odeon now shut for the foreseeable, has anyone had any luck ( or even tried ) getting a refund on their Limitless card ?

You mean they haven't just done it automatically? Or have they stated they would but then not got onto it?

Need to check if their site has been updated; took longer than it should have done to find but - Coronavirus / COVID-19 and my Limitless membership

In my case it would pretty much be just 1 month's worth anyway ( mine expires next month ).

Different people will be affected differently as you can either pay monthly or pay for the year upfront.

UPDATE: So, according to the online chat ... if you pay monthly then payments have been stopped until further notice but if you paid up front then you need to email them when your membership expires and they will "see what they can do"

I;ll just leave my annual pass as it is (renews in September) as i assume they will just add the missing months onto the end when the cinemas re-open. no need for a refund really.

I received two emails about my Limitless membership today. Very confusing as it talks about ;payment being taken (they can't as they don't have my card number) and talking about my membership starting on 20.1.2020.

I'm assuming what it really means is that they've have extended my membership until 19.1.2021, which means about 4 months have been added onto to my membership year.

Haven't had any email yet.

However, I do have an email from 20th May saying that my card would be automatically extended by however long I have missed out when they finally reopen. They officially closed on the 17th March and my card expired around mid-April IIRC so hopefully I get about 1 months worth of Limitless after they reopen ( whenever that is ).

By my reckoning, that means nobody should be getting an extension longer than 3 months at the moment ( as well hat is how long they have been closed )

maybe, and i am being optimistic, us limitless people may get special dibs at screenings.
Then again we are already paid and they need more money
but we'd also be more happy to go at random times, unpopular showings etc.
(as i am a student now i can go anytime etc)
though they probably want more people who go in groups and can sit together than the solo guest.
Tricky!

Not even sure how they are going to reopen with social distancing.

Sure, reserved seating ( via online booking ) may help but how do they enforce that inside the cinema when people see loads of empty premium seats and just think they'll sit in them.

They may have pulled a selection of seats out?

Cinema in Stanley won't be reopening due to the need to socially distance in bubbles. It makes sense as my usual cinema group which is two other people would take up 16 seats out of 64 total available.

Cineworld have announced that, pending government approval, they will be re-opening on July 10th; cinema capacity will be reduced by 50% (which still seems quite high to me if we are still adopting 2m SD by then or even just 1m ... you can possibly get 6+ cinema seats inside a 1m radius) and there will be more staggered film start times.

The main issue regarding chances of infection has to be the people sat behind you, especially if they're talking/laughing or using their phones.

That, and the airflow around the room - you can often feel a draft, but can't usually tell exactly where it's coming from (or maybe that's just me!) It's been shown that AC air movement has a large effect on transmission.

I wonder if they will block the seats off into pairs? That would make it more tricky for a single parent with 2 small kids.
