Awarding of prizes were held last August 08, 2010 at the Manor Superclub at Eastwood City. At the time, winners of the season pass were only given a token, a large replica of the season pass. We were told that the actual pass would take some time to process. Two weeks later, the season pass was ready for claiming.

The card entitles the bearer to 6 months of unlimited movie pass at any Eastwood cinema, including the Ultra 7. I've been meaning to try their Ultra 7 cinema and so after claiming the season pass, partner and I, went straight to Eastwood Mall to watch The Expendables that was showing at Ultra 7.

Eastwood City's Ultra 7 cinema opened last year and offers moviegoers a different watching experience. During our visit, we found very comfortable reclining seats, much like a lazy boy, that were arranged in pairs. Partner and I had the luxury of putting our legs up and we were served with unlimited popcorn and drinks. Get all the popcorn flavors you like! My favorite is the sour and cream. :)
Watching at Ultra 7 cost Php400 per person. That includes unlimited popcorn and drinks. After presenting the season pass at the ticket booth, we were asked to pay for Php200 each. I was a bit disappointed at first because I thought we'll get the whole package for free! We were told that the Php200 would cover the unlimited popcorn and drinks. I asked if we could forego with the food and drinks. Sadly, we couldn't. Nonetheless, partner and I still thought that it was worth it. Our Ultra 7 experience didn't disappoint us.
I got more curious with the season pass after our first movie. And so for our next movie date, we decided to watch Step Up 3 at a regular Eastwood cinema.

With the season pass, watching at any regular Eastwood cinema is totally free!
By the following week, partner and I were anticipating the showing of Despicable Me. Luckily, it was showing in 3D at Eastwood cinema 6.

Watching in 3D at Eastwood cinemas costs Php350 each. This includes a tumbler of popcorn and 16oz of either iced tea or soda. With the season pass, we were asked to pay Php100 each for the food and drink. Not bad! Since I'm really not into popcorn, I found this a better deal than the Ultra 7. Although, it would be nice to watch really long films with the comfort of a recliner seat.
As per inquiry, the Eastwood Cinemas Season Pass cannot be purchased. It is only given to special partners or in my case, given as an award to a contest or promo.
