Used to be quite run down and grubby. But it's been improved. The corridor is tidy too. The screen we went in was quite nice, the seats are ok but you don't get much leg room. Been here a few times, it's not bad as a local cinema in Great Yarmouth.

We visited this cinema last year and even though we enjoyed the experience we could see that it was a bit grubby and run down. However we visited this year and were glad to see that some investment and improvements had been made.
There are new seats and a new sound system, the price of a ticket is still fairly low compared to the larger chain cinemas, £7 for an adult ticket beats any of my local ones.
The concessions area is small but well stocked and again somehow the prices are kept low.
Outside we could see that the ageing building has had some clean up work and some maintenance was going on on the roof during the day, so i guess the owners can see that it is a fine old building and needed some TLC.
Bargain prices at an improved old cinema. take a look if you are holidaying nearby.

This is an old cinema but not originally designed as a theatre or cinema, and it shows. I hope a new 'old' cinema takes over one of the old, closed theatres instead of this place. Incredibly hot inside on a 22 degree day and desperately in need of air conditioning.

We visited the cinema on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
The choice of films was not very inspiring but we paid our money and went to screen five.

The seats were very low and uncomfortable.
Twenty minutes into the film we lost all sound on our film. We had a picture, but no sound. A man came into apologise but it took 6-7 minutes to get it going again.
Once the film restarted, they did not re-play the section we missed so I did not properly understand how the plot developed.

At several points during our film (not just during the silent bit) I was able to hear noise from an adjoining screen, which rather spoiled my viewing pleasure.

I would re-visit but, based on my experience on rhis occasion, I have to grade it as being a poor experience.
