We decided last minuet to go to the cinema to see Venom (which was really good) and we had never been to the Basingstoke cinema before but we had been to other Vues so we were expecting a standard seat. To our surprise when we...More

Thank you to vue Basingstoke for hosting our school group brilliantly. The upgraded seats are an amazing luxury and sorting out 40 kids snack deals was no problem for the staff. I would definitely recommend this cinema.

Loving the new comfy lay back seats but the cost of The Vue cinema is just completely absurd! Tickets cost us £26 for 2 people, not including if you brought snacks. A large popcorn and a large drink cost £9.50 so if you both wanted...More

If you are planning to visit a cinema in the Basingstoke area "Vue" is your best choice. The main reason I recommend this cinema is because of the NEW SEATS. They are reclining, have a slide across table and are larger and more spaced out...More

You won't at the moment as Vue have "updated" their website and it is no longer fit for purpose. It is nigh impossible to find out which films are on when. Trying to call their booking line is tedious and expensive. Their... More
