“ABC Cinema - Premier Seats - terrible”
Review of Odeon Cinema

Odeon Cinema
Ranked #15 of 43 Fun & Games in Bournemouth
Attraction details
Reviewed 27 February 2014

We paid for premier seats at Screen 1 ABC Cinema (part of Odeon Group) in Bournemouth.
Never been so uncomfortable in all my life!
Do not bother - we moved to normal seats about half way through film.

It provided a service and the staff were really friendly helpful but it was scruffy and expensive we are probably spoilt by our own Art Deco cinema

£6.70 to see a film is quite good, but the place was freezing, the staff surly and they had no diet coke, no nachos, and made us walk to different stands to get different drinks. Most polite requests, such as "can I have a glass of water" were met with sighing and eye rolling. The seats must have been in since the eighties and were leaning slightly forward which made them terribly uncomfortable. A horrible experience from start to finish. Manager indifferent and when we did the online survey we were asked if we would like to be contacted. We ticked the yes box, and the next page asked us to detail why we wanted to be contacted! You asked us Odeon! Will never go to an Odeon again, the Vue is worth the extra money.

It is a cinema... Seats are comfy but it could do with a revamp: facade, inside... The floor was extremely sticky so much so that I didn't want to put our backpack on the floor!

I went to the cinema last nigh to watch 12 years a slave.
put in a large room which had just been tidied (was ok).
went to the toilet and they could do with a refurbishment really.
sat to watch the film at the back there are two seats with no chairs obstructing the screen so my husband and i choose to sit there.
The seat had hardly any cushioning in them at all and were extremly uncomfortable.
the film was a long film (which we didnt realise) and the seats were not adaquate for the time sat in them.
I think for the price of tickets that the cinema could do with an upgrade really to make the experience even more enjoyable.
we were going to upgrade to premier seats, i am really glad we didnt as the only difference is that they have a slight head rest, they dont look any comfier!
It is also a shame that there is no parking for the cinema as a competative cinema in poole has free parking and comfier seats, i will be going to the poole cinema in future.
maybe the odean could reimburse something for the parking charges, when you purchase a cinema ticket. (just an idea)
