Can I start watching films at cinemas before my card arrives?

Yes you can! When you purchase an Unlimited Card we will send you a confirmation email with your temporary Unlimited Card attached as a PDF. You can start using the temporary Unlimited Card straight away in cinema and online as detailed below. As soon as you receive your Unlimited Card through the post please start using this instead of the temporary Unlimited Card.

Tickets in cinema: Each time you visit a Cineworld cinema just present your temporary Unlimited card at the box office together with one other form of identification (such as your driving licence or bank card) to obtain your tickets. You can either print out the temporary Unlimited Card or display the PDF on your smartphone. If you signed up in one of our cinemas using an Unlimited tablet, you can use the confirmation SMS to obtain your tickets (although you will need to show the PDF or printed version of your temporary Unlimited Card together with ID on any future visits).

Tickets online via My Cineworld*: To use your temporary Unlimited Card to book tickets online using the Unlimited Card online booking offer you will need to register for a My Cineworld account and input your Unlimited Card number. You can register at Once you have done this you will be able to book up to three (3) tickets online via your My Cineworld account. Please note that you may only have one booking for a particular film at any one time and you must not book for two films which start within 90 minutes of each other, whether those tickets are booked in cinema or online.

Tickets by phone: It is not possible to use your temporary Unlimited Card or your Unlimited Card to book tickets by telephone.

Terms of the Unlimited Card Online Booking Offer apply. Click here for details. Online booking may be amended or withdrawn at any time without notice.
