Cineworld Star Experience winners have been announced!

The Force was awakened today as five very lucky people became the winners of our amazing 'Star Experience' competition, to celebrate the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

They are Cineworld Edinburgh's Karen Baur, Cineworld Bexleyheath's Gareth Hall, Cineworld Broughton's Barrie Jones, Cineworld Nottingham's Matt Dunn and Cineworld Didsbury's Mark Johns.

These guys saw off considerable competition from 6,000 other entrants to win a sensational 'Star Experience' package, which included being taken to and from the cinema in a chauffeur driven car, being escorted into the cinema by two Storm Troopers, a £100 Cineworld gift card and a ton of Star Wars goodies including a limited edition PlayStation 4 Star Wars bundle.  Check out our image gallery of the winners.

For Karen, it was a dream come true: "Im a huge Star Wars fan and when I saw the opportunity to win this incredible 'Star Experience' from Cineworld, I jumped at the chance!" 

Said Gareth: "I’ve had the best night– being escorted into the cinema alongside two Storm Troopers was something I’ll never forget – I felt like a celebrity! Thanks so much to Cineworld Edinburgh for this wonderful experience."

Congratulations, everyone! We're thrilled you enjoyed the experience – was there a better way of ending this epic year of movies?
