Qualified for the timeplay tournament this weekend. Probably won't win the cash prizes but it'll be interesting to see where I'll place.

cineplex reply regarding the lower amount of points offered now on timeplay indicates that they are pursuing other things, and this will not be one of their big concerns right now:
Sounds like they believe once you buy a ticket you aren't worth their time since they already got your money. They are making money so I think they know what they're doing.

In other words, they have a near monopoly on the Canadian movie box office, so they don't really care anymore.

i qualified too... but i'm not wasting my time going there; it's st. paddy's and will have more fun enjoying some beer than getting insulted with 5 scene points

Pretty sure everyone qualified if you played even once.

Not so sure about that... I got friends who didn't get the e-mail, but I did.
I told them they're not missing anything, and probably saving some grievance

The top 20 made it to the timeplay tournament finals. The top 3 players in the finals got cash prizes

They let the audience participate in some of the timeplay games and winners from the games got posters, cineplex passes, etc. There was a huge lineup at Scotiabank

I was exaggerating. It was still a lot of people that were invited outside of the people competing for money.

For the 1st time in months, I arrived earlier to the theatre, and was able to see people competing in Timeplay (I don't bother anymore)
Prizes were just entries for a raffle (not a single Scene point, not even for the 1st place... I think they just hit rock bottom)

They still had scene points when I went to see Ant-Man a few weeks ago. They had 2 competitions and I came in 1st and 2nd... I didn't notice until now that these expire too:

So sad that they have to make points worth a whopping 30 cents to expire after 30 days as well. The most junk program ever.

I went early last week and came first, and all I got was 5 extra ballots to some trip to LA which I know I won't win. What a waste of time. If it wasn't for my SCENE Visa I'd probably never earn enough points for a free movie. Heck, I'm even considering getting rid of this credit card and get a better one with actual benefits.
Tis banana is IRIE :razz:

10% off is cold, 50% off is warm, 75% off is hot, but FREE IS RFD!

What's the top prize nowadays? I haven't played time play for a while as they watered down the prizes so bad.
