Didn't book as film been out a while. Got seats fine very quiet initially. In cinema 6 upon entering noticed how nice & warm it was (that's a first)! Seats not that comfy - never had that issue before. We did however have people behind us with children who permanently kicked the back of the seats. Even catching our hair.... More

Went to this cinema for the first time on Sunday 2nd April as we could not find an 6-7 pm showing of Chips near where we live. Takes nearly an hour to get there but it is worth it. Very quirky, art deco venue. We were in the cinema on the left hand side which had a small screen and... More

The tickets were reasonably priced and staff were helpful. The cinema was small and twee seating and atmosphere. A nice day out for a good price!

What a fantastic place. I went to see a film early afternoon so couldn't confirm or disagree with many of the criticisms that I read here that it's very busy and difficult to purchase food/tickets due to there being only 1 desk. We bought tickets online and there was actually a completely separate stall to collect pre-paid tickets (so I'd... More

Have the food and tickets sales separate. It's a total nonsense when you have to wait behind folk ordering hotdogs, nachos, popcorn x 10 when all you want is two tickets. And whilst it might look trendy, the ticket booth just isn't practical. The old system was much better when the ticket booths were on the left and the food... More

We visit this cinema frequently but yesterday was the fourth time that a film has been ruined by people talking the entire length of the film. We have asked people to be quiet and either had abuse or a short interlude before they begin again. We have even twice complained to staff (having to miss some of the film to... More

We go to the cinema frequently. We tolerate the rather grubby carpets and seats that are falling apart but tonight was a new low. There is nowhere at the cinema you can just buy a ticket for a show. Instead there is a single queue for food and tickets. The result is chaos. On a busy Saturday night, they only... More

Went into cinema #3 to see T2 Trainspotting with my son and his girlfriend and couldn't believe the state of the seats, all with holes and wood underframe exposed. No wonder the lights were kept dimmed at the end of the film ! I haven't been in this cinema since around 1994 or 5 when it had just finished a... More
