“Lot Better Than What It Used To Be!”
Reviewed 20 December 2012

This is my local cinema, therefore I have been a good few times in my lifetime and have to say I've never had a problem.

Prices for some items can be a bit steep, but that's the same wherever you go. (Would be even more if it was Vue!)

Screen rooms are always clean (until the film has finished. Nothing worse when people don't put their rubbish in the bins provided!!)

Sometimes it's cold and breezy in the screen and sometime's it's boiling - so take adaptable clothing with you!

Have a good selection of films, but they're coming out in 3D first, which my Mam can't see so she has to wait longer which isn't fair.

“Good cinema”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

This is a very good modern cinema I have visited many times. The seats are like armchairs with a high back and cupholders on the arms. Very comfortable to watch even the longest film! It is kept clean and it is easy to obtain tickets.

The only problem I have ever had is with other people watching the film who talk loudly. Although there are signs to say talking is prohibited it does not seem to be enforced as there are
never any cinema employees in the screening area whilst the show is on. If this could be addressed it would be great.
