Good cinema but small auditorium sizes means not booking / reserving tickets can be risky for popular films. The one I went to see had loads of tickets available an hour before but when I reached the box office, they were selling fast, in fact it was practically a sell out with only one or two seats empty by the time the film started.

The screen and sound are both good and 3D rendering is good also.

One thing I don't like about it, is the screen entrance design. I hate screens where you come in at the front of the auditorium as if you decide to leave, you then have to walk in front of everyone. Not only can that be embarrassing but it also interrupts the film for them. The cinema would have been far better designed with a traditional rear entrance to the auditorium. I only visited 1 screen (upstairs) so can't comment if they're all like that, but I rather suspect so.

Overall, worth it and well worth a visit if on holiday if only to support the local facilities.

Good cinema but it's quite small, we had to sit at the front because there wasn't any seats so make sure you get there early.

This is the cinema Newquay waited sixteen years for and it was well worth it! Its four screens give a high quality of picture and sound and the seats are extremely comfortable. What's more, the owners WTW Cinemas are highly community-focused, offering special film choices for charity evenings, coffee mornings in the large foyer area and weekly coffee-and-film mornings for seniors. Live comedy nights are also proving popular.
