My family have been coming to FACT to watch movies since the place opened, but the prices have gone up somewhat since then, although this may be due to the more regular showings of 'hyped' films. They do offer memberships and student discount, which make it better value than the local odeon. My girlfriend and I now regularly visit, much... More

I have seen a couple of films here and enjoyed my experience each time. Comfy seats, reasonable prices and you can have a bite to eat/drink before or after the film.

A little pricey compared to other cinemas but it is well worth paying for. Nice and clean, very comfortable seats and friendly, hardworking staff. The movies on offer range from classics to new blockbusters to independent films so lots of choice for any avid film fan.

FACT show a good selection of new, and iconic films, the seating is comfortable and I love the booths that are available. Drinks are a tad over priced but it is a cinema so I guess that's to be expected.

Cool as has air conditioning and staff are very pleasant and easygoing, trendy because it shows the latest and a wide range of films! It also has a vegetarian cafe named the Garden appropriately as it has lots of plants inside and is very light and airy! There's also free to visit art galleries showing contemporary art.
