The vue cinema a sort distance away is bigger, newer and has more screens. However, if you are prepared to see beyond the ageing decor and tired carpets,this is a lovely old cinema at a fraction of the price of the other one for both...More

So I picked Reel Cinema as they are both cheaper and closer to me than VUE. This, however, will be my first and last time there. Although pleasant staff and the cheap prices (£6 compared to £11), the problem began when they say "Student discount"...More

Visited this afternoon to watch the new Thor film, £6.20 a ticket on a weekend, certainly won’t complain at that! Cup of pick and mix sweets for £2.40 was a bargain for cinema prices as well. I love coming to this cinema, it’s location within...More

One of the worst cinemas I've ever been to. Sound quality in screen 1 is poor and the seating bank is at a stupid orientation to the screen. When I wanted a refund they refused to give me one. Avoid like the plague.

Good cinema and cheaper than vue cinema and most of the others. Needs good support to keep it going and stop a lovely charter full cinema disappearing from our historical history. Maybe take a cushion if you like comfort because it is an old cinema...More

Yes great prices until you see and experience (screen 1) the filthy sticky floor, broken dirty seats and the stale dirty smell. Needs a professional deep clean, not just a quick spray of febreeze.
