“i'd like an alternative cinema to choose from in Carlisle”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2013

Vue Cinema in Carlisle takes ages to be served. The same person issues the tickets, then sells the snacks and sweets etc.
I always refuse to go see a Certificated 15 movie there, because it is full of noisy teenagers using it as a place to hang out and chatter. Staff never enter the auditorium to ensure that there is quiet so that everyone can enjoy the movie in peace.

And as for the mobiles lighting up. I ain't even gonna go there on that one.

“Too few staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

Whenever we visit this cinema, usually during the day, the same poor attendant has to issue the ticket, serve the drinks, get the popcorn, answer the queries from the person who wants to know what's on next week etc, etc, etc. So the queue is always endless.... Screens are clear, however, sound is good and there's always plenty of choice.

“Good Cinema”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

This cinema has seven screens and it's has really comfy seats with loads of leg room. One thing I don't understand is that even if it's not busy you have to select a seat when buying your ticket (weird). The surround sound is excellent. As in every cinema popcorn and confectionary prices are extortionate but I really like this cinema.

“Wow how expensive??”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

I know cinemas are expensive but "How Much?" We visited recently and found the cost of the tickets and the food to be astronomical!

“KIDS AM!! :-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

Go for Kids AM on a weekend, great price, me and the little one got in for only £3.50 for both of us!!! Film starts at 10am on both Saturdays and Sundays but for that price is well worth the money
