“Decent cinema”
Review of Cineworld Cinemas

Cineworld Cinemas
Ranked #4 of 17 Fun & Games in Luton
Attraction details
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Have been going to this cinema for a number of years and have to say it seems well run and the staff are generally friendly and polite. They clearly don't want you buying tickets over the counter & what used to be the box office doesn't ever seem to be open so you have to queue up at the sweet / food counter if you are buying on the day or you can use the machines in the foyer. Booking online is slightly cheaper and it avoids the whole queuing thing, your on line booking confirmation can be scanned on the way in to the screen itself. The system has now changed so seating is allocated so check out the seating online or ask when you buy your ticket to get seated where you want i.e. front, back middle etc.

They are good at cleaning up and the place always looks tidy. Saturday morning movies for Juniors is great value if you have younger kids and missed a big release - tickets are £1.50 or £1.35 if you buy online. Great way to keep the kids happy and save money.

The staff seemed competent and it's a cinema, part of a chain. All the basic bases were covered. Parking was £3, while it's free at Cineworld, Stevenage, so I will avoid unless I am in Luton without my car.

Been going to this cinema for quite a while and most times we get reasonable seats. A bit frustrating with allocated seating as sometimes you have rubbish seats and better seats remain empty. My husband suggested they have diagrams of the seating plan for the various theatres. Good to see that they now have ONE set- for all the tills to share!!!! :(
Quality of seats not always great. They can take a page out of MK cineworld. Good deals on food if you have a cineworld unlimited card.

I can not speak for recent months but I personally refuse to go to this cinema any more on the basis of a nightclub within the Galaxy Centre now blatantly too loud and can hear bass lines which affects the cinema experience. This may just be on certain nights but for the cost of a Cineworld ticket now I find this issue breaks the camel's back for me.

Not to mention the usual noisy audience issues, seem to have had more phone and baby noise problems at this cinema than any other.

The prices for Cineworld have just gone up and up over the years, but I don't feel the rise has been justified in Luton. Having been to other Cineworlds such as Stevenage and Milton Keynes, I feel that the extra profit hasn't been put back into the cinema. Often I've been in a cinema where the screen is broken, or in one of the tiny cinemas to the right of the tills where you don't get the full cinema experience. The place isn't exactly clean, and the positioning of it attracts gangs of kids/teens to loiter around outside, in doorways and on the stairs. The food is extortionate (usual for cinemas) but I understand that they've loosened the rules and allowed people to bring their own cold food in i.e. not McDonalds.
Overall, I'd sooner travel further out than visit the Luton Cineworld.
