This cinema is very good value, the seats are comfortable even for tall people over six foot tall, they give you plenty of leg room.

Great seating and tickets are cheaper than larger cinemas in nearby cities, good for families. Nice screens too. Queuing to get to the tills can be a problem, queues down the stairs also wheelchair access can be an issue as many times the only lift...More

We usually go to Colchester Odeon, but decided to try the Century. We won't be going back to Colchester! It's a really great cinema, beautifully decorated and clean. It's such good value for money that it doesn't make sense not to use it.
