“Overpriced.”

“Overpriced.”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Now that the cinema is a Vue Cinema, not an Apollo, the prices of food and drinks have increased drastically. It costs just as much to get popcorn and a drink as it is to actually get tickets for a film.

Otherwise, the screen rooms are clean and somewhat spacious. The screens are great, and the sound quality is brilliant. Also, you get up to 1/3 off all adult tickets on Tuesdays.

Overall, I would recommend this cinema, but if you want food and drinks with your film, be prepared to spend a lot.

“Excellent cinema for a seaside resort.”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Good place to go on a wet afternoon. Many different screens and also 3D. Almost certainly a film worth watching with a quite a big selection available. Comfortable and with good sound.

“Please keep this to the old standards”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

The best cinema seats we have ever had - plush, clean and high backed - arranged so you can actually see the screen rather than the head in front. Hope this stays. Shame the prices have gone up but there are special offers on if you go on Tuesdays during the day. Toilets could do with a bit of a de-pong
