“Friendly welcome and cosy atmosphere”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

We went to see Quartet at the cinema inside the Gala Theatre. We were able to pre-book and pay for our seats with friendly efficient staff.
The venue is clean and warm with good signage.
Cinema prices are cheaper than down south - is it because the cinema is smaller? An enjoyable visit.

“Intimate theatre”
Reviewed 14 January 2013

Although quite small the seating arrangements mean you can get a good view, even at the back. Great choices of shows on offer. Very clean and tidy

“Fabulous theatre”
Reviewed 11 January 2013

Have seen many of the Gala's theatre school productions and they are as good as any West End performance. The talent and degree of professionalism is unbelievable.

“Cant really call it a cinema”
Reviewed 11 January 2013

The cinema's are small...cramped. The location is good..staff ok, but not over helpful. The selection of attractions could be better, but in a word(s). "Small...dindgy"
