“Really nice older style cinema”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

Went here to see Muppets Most Wanted whilst in holiday in the area. Lovely older style cinema and great value. Not for those wanting the latest 3D multiplex

“Looked through the windows, very entertaining!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

We didn't watch any movie here but the building itself is pretty fine and we spent a couple of minutes gawking through the windows at proceedings inside the entrance hall. The bored looking youths flogging overpriced popcorn provided amusement and the ticket prices were not a complete rip. Recommended length of visit: 5 min.

“Old, Dated, Sticky, Smelly”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

This is the only choice for cinema goers in Great Yarmouth, its such a shame that this beautiful old building has been left to suffer.

Some of the screens are basically like walking into someone living room with cinema seating (old school) and having a Big Screen TV.

I don't think it will be long before this venue closes it doors for the last time when the new Odeon opens its doors at the other end of the seafront next year.

“great nostalgic cinema!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

a great venue that makes you feel its all about the films not the making money!
We went to see Smurfs 2, the sound was perfectly balanced so that the soundtrack didnt drown out the voices, we didnt suddenly get deafened during an action scene after straining to hear the quieter scenes as in other cinemas weve been to, it was a relief!
the snacks were a tad pricey, but cheaper tickets than others so thats obviously where they make a profit. just a shame popcorn was so stale as it wasnt pleasant.
Staff were welcoming and friendly and made it a good visit.
