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

Denzel Washington stars in this compelling drama as an airline pilot whose turbulent personal life is exposed. William 'Whip' Whitaker (Washington) is a hard-living womaniser with an alcohol and drug problem. The morning after a boozy episode in an Orlando hotel room, Whip is scheduled to make a routine trip to Atlanta. After a rough take-off, the flight appears to be progressing smoothly - until the plane plummets into a terrifying, heart-stopping dive. Seasoned pilot Whip miraculously manages to land the plane, saving the lives of nearly everyone on-board and his heroism is duly applauded. But then details of his lifestyle begin to surface, casting doubt over his entire character. Can a man still be a hero even when he has a dark side? That's the dilemma at the centre of thought-provoking drama Flight. Robert Zemeckis' first live action film since Cast Away features a riveting turn from Washington as a man thrown into a personal crisis of increasingly stormy proportions.

Starring: Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, John Goodman, Kelly Reilly

Director: Robert Zemeckis

Genre: Drama

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:
