“Great place to see a movie”
Reviewed 22 December 2013 via mobile

We went here last week to see the hobbit in 3d and really enjoyed it. It's $14.50 for an adult ticket, and the cinema is air-conditioned and a good size .. You can also purchase bags of popcorn and bottled drinks etc

“Huge screen, great quality sound, etc”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

This movie theatre has clearly been recently upgraded. It's very good audio and visual quality. The prices are cheap too, compared with Australia or New Zealand. But the seats are probably the most uncomfortable I've ever sat on. Bring a cushion, or stick to short movies!

“A good way to spend sometime while waiting for your flight.”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

Only $10 for a movie - which is great when you're coming from NZ and higher prices. Showings are at 6pm and 8.30pm every day with a maximum of two movie choices as there is only one screen - it's big enough however. Unfortunately for us the sound was misbehaving and they couldn't fix it but they were happy to refund our tickets, so I would recommend a visit if you fancy watching a film.
