7.7 The Unlimited Card will be valid from the Start Date for the duration of the Initial Period unless terminated by You or Cineworld under clauses 5, 10, 11 or 12.
Payment of annual subscription fees
8.1 The annual subscription fee for the Initial Period and renewal fees for each type of Unlimited Card are available from Cineworld’s website, Cineworld Cinemas and the Unlimited Helpline. The annual subscription fee must be paid in advance under the Annual Payment Plan or, by installment under the Monthly Payment Plan, but in either case must be paid in full for the whole Initial Period.
8.2 Cineworld reserves the right to increase the annual subscription fee payable by installment under the Monthly Payment Plan to reflect the cost to Cineworld of accepting payment by installment. Such changes shall not take effect during the Initial Period and shall be notified to You in writing and at least one month before they come into effect.
8.3 Monthly Payment Plan
8.3.1 Under the Monthly Payment Plan, You agree to pay the full annual subscription fee for the Initial Period in 12 equal monthly installments during the Initial Period.
8.3.2 (a) When Cineworld accepts your application for an Unlimited Card, You shall pay the following amount by credit card, debit card, charge card, Cineworld e-gift voucher or Cineworld gift card (but not cash or cheque):
(i) if the User is a UK resident, the first month's installment; or
(ii) if the User is a resident in Ireland, the first two months’ installments.
(b) Each installment for the remaining months shall be paid in advance by Direct Debit from a nominated bank account. You will need to fill in the Direct Debit instruction included in the Agreement correctly prior to submitting your application form. Each payment will be debited on the same day of each month, being the same day of the month that the first installment was paid. If this date falls on a weekend or a bank holiday, or if there is no day of the same date in any month (e.g. 30 February) payment will be debited by your bank on the previous or next Working Day. Please check with your bank for details.
8.3.3 Unless You cancel your subscription at the end of the Initial Period in accordance with the Agreement, the Subscription Period will automatically be extended after the Initial Period if You continue to pay the monthly fee each month.
8.3.4 If You want to change the bank account to be debited, You must telephone the Unlimited Helpline to provide the new Direct Debit details and give Cineworld at least three weeks to process this change.
8.3.5 If, during the Initial Period, Cineworld does not receive any monthly payment or You seek to terminate the Agreement except as permitted in clauses 10 or 11, Cineworld may terminate the Agreement and deactivate the Unlimited Card as described in clause 12 below. Cineworld will be entitled to recover damages from You, which may include its reasonable administration expenses caused by the incident and the fees and expenses (including those of debt collectors) that Cineworld may reasonably and properly incur to recover the outstanding subscription fees which are due to Cineworld under the Agreement for the remainder of the Initial Period.
8.4 Annual Payment Plan
8.4.1 Under the Annual Payment Plan, You agree to pay the annual subscription fee for the Initial Period in a single advance payment.
8.4.2 You may pay the annual subscription fee by debit card, credit card or charge card (but not cash or cheque). Cineworld gift cards and e-gift vouchers may also be used to pay for annual subscription fees on the Cineworld website and on Unlimited Tablets. .
8.4.3 At least six weeks before the end of the Initial Period, Cineworld will offer You the opportunity to continue the subscription by paying the subscription fee for the next year by debit, credit or charge card, or to move to the Monthly Payment Plan. In order to continue your subscription and/or move to the Monthly Payment Plan You will need to contact the Unlimited Helpline by telephone, as it is not possible to extend annual subscriptions or change payment plans via Cineworld’s website or Unlimited Tablets and still receive the black Premium Unlimited Card. The Unlimited Helpline is currently unable to accept payments by gift card or e-gift voucher, which means you can only pay for extension periods by debit, credit or charge card.
8.4.4 If this Agreement is terminated during the Initial Period (or any Subscription Period) on Legitimate Grounds (as described in clause 11), Cineworld will refund the amount paid in advance under the Annual Payment Plan for any full months remaining less one month.
8.5 Extending your Unlimited Card
8.5.1 If You extend the Subscription Period after the Initial Period, the fees for both the Monthly Payment Plan and the Annual Payment Plan will be those in force on the date the Initial Period expires.

Lost, stolen or defective cards
9.1 The User will need to telephone the Unlimited Helpline as soon as possible to report any lost or stolen Unlimited Card.
9.2 If the Unlimited Card is lost or stolen, Cineworld will charge an administration fee to replace it. The charge is currently £10.00 (or €16.00 if You are in Ireland) but this may be changed by Cineworld to reflect its administration costs. Once the fee is paid, Cineworld will send a replacement card to the User.
9.3 If the subscription is paid by Direct Debit, the amount of the administration fee will be debited directly from your bank account. If a Direct Debit is not in place, You will need to pay the administration fee before Cineworld will send out a new card.
9.4 If the card is defective, the User must return it to the Unlimited Helpline as soon as possible for a free replacement. Cineworld’s liability in such cases is expressly limited to replacement of the defective Unlimited Card.
9.5 For the avoidance of doubt, no refunds will be given for cinema tickets purchased by the User between the date the card was lost or stolen or a replacement card was requested and the date the User receives his or her new card. Users will not be entitled to an Unlimited ticket until the replacement card has been received and is presented as necessary at a Cineworld Cinema to obtain or collect tickets and to gain entry to the auditorium. A User will be unable to take advantage of the Unlimited online ticket booking offer (where available) until he/she receives a replacement card and updates his/her details in his/her mycineworld account.
10.1 Subscription fees may be increased by Cineworld to reflect changes in standard ticket prices, inflation, Cineworld’s costs, additional taxes and costs that are not imposed by Cineworld.

10.2 If there is a change in the rate of VAT or any other tax, or any other tax is imposed, Cineworld will be entitled to change the subscription fees to reflect such changes, at any time including during the Initial Period.

(ii) if You pay the fees in advance, the increase will take effect at the end of the period for which fees have been paid.
10.4 Changes to these Conditions:
10.4.1 Cineworld may make minor changes to these Conditions from time to time to correct errors or to clarify the terms. You will not be specifically notified of such changes but they will be on Cineworld’s website and so to see the most up to date version of these conditions please always check the Cineworld website.

18.3 Only one ticket per Unlimited Card may be booked online at any time and no further online ticket booking may be made using that Unlimited Card until the screening to which the existing booking relates has come to an end. Although a booking/processing fee usually applies to Cineworld customers when cinema tickets are booked online, Unlimited Cardholders are exempt from this booking/processing fee when booking a ticket online for themselves.
18.4 mycineworld discounts will not apply to (i) any uplift payment for tickets for 3-D screenings booked online using an Unlimited Card or (ii) tickets for event cinema screenings booked online using an Unlimited Card, although the usual Unlimited discounts for these types of screenings will continue to apply in accordance with clause 7.2 of the Unlimited Terms and Conditions.
18.5 Tickets for other customers may be booked online for the same screening as part of the same transaction at standard prices for the relevant performance. A booking/processing fee of 50p per person for whom a seat is booked will usually apply when booking tickets for other customers (unless they are Unlimted Cardholders themselves). You may also include ticket bookings for the same screening for other Unlimited customers as part of your booking, but please ensure that you have obtained their permission in advance.

18.8 Where Cineworld has advised the Unlimited Customer that e-ticketing is available for a particular booking, the User may use the e-ticket (containing a QR code) attached to the email confirmation of booking (“e-ticket”) in the chosen Cineworld cinema as their cinema ticket. The Unlimited Customer may present their e-ticket on a mobile phone or on a print out together with their Unlimited Card at the relevant auditorium entry point for scanning by a Cineworld staff member to gain entry for the Unlimited Customer or, in the case of a group booking, the Unlimited Customer’s group (please see clause 18.9 below for further conditions regarding group entry using e-tickets). If retail items have been ordered as part of the individual or group booking, the Unlimited Customer must go to the Concession stand first to collect the retail items.

The Unlimited Customer must be able to provide proof of ticket purchase for all members (including any Unlimited Customers included in the booking) by showing the relevant e-tickets, along with the Unlimited Cards for Unlimited Customers included in the booking, at all times during the group’s visit (including during a performance) if requested by Cineworld staff.
18.10 If the Unlimited Customer would prefer to use printed tickets and, if applicable, printed retail vouchers, they may present their e-ticket at an automated ticket collection machine or a Concession stand together with their Unlimited Card and request printed tickets and, if applicable, retail vouchers. If tickets and, where applicable, retail vouchers are printed, the QR code on the e-ticket will no longer work and the printed tickets and vouchers must be used to enter the screen and collect retail items. Unlimited Customers should ensure that they arrive by the advertised performance time, as Cineworld reserves the right to refuse admission to customers who arrive after the start of the feature presentation.
18.11 Tickets will only be issued on production of (i) the Unlimited Card used to make the booking, (ii) the relevant booking reference or (iii) where a payment has been made as part of the booking transaction, the debit/credit/charge card used to make the payment.
