Expensive, cold and filthy! It's a shame the bigger cinema on the Isle of Man can't provide a good service! The films and food are seriously overpriced. The place is filthy and it's absolutely freezing!

The staff are lovely but there is an unavoidable smell of damp in the auditorium. It is also very cold inside and popcorn is ver expensive. The screen and 3D glasses are excellent quality but physical experience of the audience needs to be addressed. Tickets...More
