“5-screen cinema”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

Very popular cinema in Harrogate town centre. Free on street parking nearby in the evening or use the carpark and ask for a voucher. Films showing daily on all 5 screens, including films in 3-D. Tuesday am senior screen films, and films for Newbies. Also lots of NT Live/Encore productions which are popular. Buy tickets earlier in the day to avoid queues and to make sure of your seats.

“Beautiful building but overpriced”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

A beautiful art deco cinema building that has even featured on a postage stamp. One of the icons of the town and in a great location (bus stop, 2 mins walk from the train station, large adjacent car park).
Sadly the cinema is more expensive than any in surrounding towns (York, Leeds, Thirsk, Wetherby). Only the Bradford IMAX costs more for a ticket but only by a small amount and the IMAX is pretty unbeatable for a cinema. Because the town lacks evening entertainment facilities (aside from the excellent theatres) the Odeon can charge what it likes for what is in reality a very mediocre cinema. There are several screens but most are very small, there is a wide range of very over-priced food.

The best cinema in town... because it is the only cinema in town. If money is not a factor or you do not want to drive to a different cinema then it is worth a visit.

“Expensive, but nice”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

This is your average odeon. At least the floor is clean and the child films at the weekend are well worth the money being only £2.50 for a child and the parent being free. There are a large selection of snacks and drinks but many of the sweets over priced when Victoria shopping centre is just round the corner.
Overall it's good for a film but it's not high class theatre.

“Tired over priced cinema”
Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

The cinema is tired and dirty, and very expensive at £9.55 for a standard ticket during peak viewing times. Although the cinema seats are comfortable the seat backs are very high, which means that anyone below 6 foot will have difficulty looking over the seats in front of them - as my wife discovered.
