We went to see Fast and Furious 8 on screen 3. The IMAX screen was huge and the best seats from row J or up. I will definitely be back to see other IMAX movies at this cinema

Tonight we saw The Great Wall here ,there are nice friendly staff comfortable seats and plenty of food and drink options available . It's also in the process of being taken over by Cineworld so waiting to see if there will be any changes .

We choose the IMAX here in early 2016 to watch Star Wars The Force Awakens and the screen and movie was spectacular! Best to take your own food e.g popcorn and certainly M&Ms from next door because their selection and quality isn't that great. But...More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
