I visited recently to see A Street cat named Bob. The cinema is very clean,seats were comfy and screen was a good size. As other reviewers have stated the staff are fantastic. They are always welcoming and friendly. I'm looking forward to my next visit to see Arrival.

I took my cousin here to watch "Trolls". It's a particularly old cinema and quite small but a cinema is a cinema! The screen we were in was large and it was clean inside. The staff were friendly and they serve cheesy nachos, popcorn, sweets, slushies and other drinks. Over the road you can go to the amusements or the... More

Well let's start with a positive ! The staff here are so lovely ! Really are attentive and help you out where and when needed , they charge 7.30 for tickets which for me is a lot when the quality of the cinema isn't that great and your booty is numb after 30 mins, the prices of food and drink...

Wow. Where do I start? I had not visited the 'Hollywood'/East Coast Cinema for at least 20 years. I was somewhat shocked to discover that the place hadn't really caught up with modern times. The foyer/entrance seems pleasant enough and up to date but I had tickets for a film in screen 3....What a huge disappointment! The screen is VERY... More

Great film portraying quality and sound. It comfortable, fairly priced on tickets and food etc. Films update rather quickly and I've never been in there and it's been full so always... More

Great value cinema , cheaper than the 'big names' in Norwich on admission and food. Staff really nice and helpful . As I always say about local services "use them or lose them"

Cinema was as it should be. Although when taking young children be aware that you may have to queue outside as there is only one person who issues tickets. It is an old cinema (not like the mainstream big names) but pleasant and does what you want for a cinema...shows films

First time we went to this cinema, The movie lost sound half way through and had to be rewound. Second time the door was left open a good 30 mins into the movie letting in light and sound from the ticket and food area... We've been here about 5 times now, when we cant be bothered to take the trip... More
