Film Description ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Alan Arkin

Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck directs and stars in the incredible true story of a secret mission to rescue six Americans trapped in Iran. It's 1979 and revolutionaries have just raided the US embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But as the hostage crisis deepens, another extraordinary story is unfolding. Six Americans have escaped and are hiding in the home of the Canadian ambassador. As revolutionary guards conduct door-to-door searches, they face the real possibility of meeting very nasty ends. But CIA 'exfiltration' expert Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) has an audacious and risky plan. With the help of Hollywood special effects expert John Chambers (John Goodman) and producer Lester Siegel (Alan Arkin), he intends to pretend the six are a Canadian film crew making a science fiction film! Based on real events, details of which were recently declassified, Ben Affleck's dazzling follow-up to 'The Town' is a story so astonishing that it could only be true.

Tickets ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you have a Cineworld Unlimited card you need to show this at the box office to collect a free ticket. Otherwise please just buy your own ticket in the normal way (if you book online in advance you may be able to get a 10% discount, eg £11.70 instead of £13). Please note extra charge for 3D movies and also for 3D glasses. If you own them please bring them with you. Details of charges on website below.

London Cinema Meetup hosts a lot of events at Cineworld cinemas (usually for seeing the latest releases, most commonly in the West End). If you like watching films regularly (more than once a month) it might be cheaper to buy a Cineworld Unlimited card for £17.99 a month - this allows you to watch as many films as you like at Cineworld cinemas (including the ones we normally use in the West End, in Shaftesbury Avenue or in Haymarket). It also gives you a 10% discount off food and drink bought in the cinemas, and some local discount offers too. There is a cheaper version of the card for £14.99, but this is not valid for the Cineworld cinemas in the West End. Currently there is an offer of getting 'one free month' if you sign up using the promotion code below:


This code has to be entered in the payments section under "promotions".
Please check terms and conditions. To obtain a card you can use this website (you will need a digital photo of your face, which will appear on the card to identify you):

    Surprisingly good film given the premise of a fake movie being the means for rescuing hostages... but it worked! Kudos to Rakhee for posting this event.
