we have been 3 times recently and every time has been as bad as the last so unfortunately we are going to stop using this cinema and wait for the new one to open.

Last night we went to see Batman vs Superman (a film i was very excited about) and when we got there the film was subtitled. Nobody told us about this and i felt like it ruined it for me. We told the woman at the counter and she said i should've been told and would pass the message on but I'm not confident this will have happened.
Last time we went i had to go out near the start and ask them to turn the volume up because the film was so quiet that me, my girlfriend and all the other people around us couldn't hear what was being said.

Sort it out guys, a new cinema is coming to town and if this doesn't improve then i think you're really going to struggle to stay open!

Once again,the staff were very helpful. £5 is so reasonable and when carer goes free,it makes for a great activity. Well done everyone

I just paid about £10 to see the new Star Wars film for a second time. This was the same price as at a Cineworld multiplex in Burton and the difference between the two establishments is dramatic. The cinema in Loughborough a.k.a. Reel Cinema or The Curzon compares very poorly to modern cinemas.

The adjoining restaurant Croma is actually a very nice little place serving good quality food and drink but it is a diamond in dung heap. The cinema is apparently a listed building, but I doubt the toilets are. If anything they should carry a public health warning. They are just awful.

Odeon fitted the cinema with new sound systems and screens, put the prices up, but didn't bother upgrading the toilets, the cinema seats or sorting the heating out. Some screens are freezing cold inside and the seats are archaic. Really uncomfortable.

It's really quite disappointing that such a big name in film hasn't seen it worthwhile to fully upgrade this landmark cinema. It would not surprise me if the new cinema that is being opened in 2016 in Loughborough drives this other one out of business.

Lovely old fashioned cinema! Cheap seats,special offers...two for £8 , not new releases..staff very pleasant, the little restaurant is nice to go before the film for just a coffee or a meal the staff were excellent,they saved us a table in a quiet corner! Support this lovely cinema folks before it dissappears!
