“Time for a freshen up”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

This was one of the very first multiplex cinema to open in the midlands - and in its heyday was a busy and amazing place to visit to watch a movie.. It's such a shame they didn't hold on to that.. With other multiplexs opened up nearby t really has taken a hit.. The investment hasn't been made to keep the place up to date and fresh.. Need some cash injection to bring back to life

“POOR”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

I think that Walsall Showcase Cinema could do with a renervation. The chairs are now all shabby and ripped. The springs on the chairs are deadly. The floor is like a sugared rink. Your shoes get stuck to the floor. Its filthy. Needs new carpet. The sweets where you make up your own are always stale and to hard to eat. Deffo needs a clean up and some care!!!!!

“Not the best!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Unfortunately this cinema needs some serious investment and refurbishment (particularly new seats), the staff are nice and friendly, but the other reviews of 'sticky floors' is accurate, and after a busy Saturday it's the smell/cleanliness of the toilets that puts me off returning here. I think Cineworld at Bentley Bridge is a better option as not so many kids seem to go there. I hope Showcase invest some money here as its actually a great location right of the M6 J10 motor exit.

“Showcase Cinema, Walsall”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Nice, bright , clean and well run. Prices are same as most other comparable places. I found the sound to be overly loud and 'tinny' But I always find the volume too much in all cinemas. Great if you are deaf I guess. A good selection of cinema snacks and drinks. Staff courtious and smart. Usually have up to date films with something for everyone from kids to granies.

“high cost of food etc inside the cinema”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

cinema is just like any other cinema as far as the films go, but the cost of snacks and drinks in the cinema to take in with you are ridiculously high. Very disappointing.
