Visited the Gunwharf screen 2. Ticket ordering simple using the machines in the foyer, and the seats were in good condition and good views. Sound and quality of screen really good. The foyer and toilets leave a bit to be desired though.

Not usually one to complain but I am very disappointed with the service I received at Gunwharf's Vue cinema. I came in today (19/02) and went to the counter to order a drink before the show, as the woman on the counter made our drink the nozzle on the coke fell off causing the syrup to go everywhere. The lady... More

Tried to book online using codes which it wouldn't let us do so. Got our tickets at the door and operator greed that the site is now even worse after they revamped it. Staff were on the whole helpful and pleasant which in today's world of pseudo customer service is refreshing. Parking is expensive to park at gunwharf though the... More

Was shocked when I went to see Fifty Shades Darker with my girlfriend to discover that there were 16 year olds in there bragging that they had snuck in without being asked for ID by staff! Unbelievable! Only positive was when we got a Pick & Mix, the member of staff there was lovely.

There were 7 people including us for the performance. Is this because it is so expensive? As well as the high entry cost, the snacks on sale are at premium prices. Many years ago, a visit to the cinema was a special treat. With the advent of Netflix etc, one would think that cinemas should try and compete. The income... More

Vue is a good cinema, the seats can get a little uncomfortable after a while - they show a good range of films at a range of different times to suit all.

Quite hard to review a cinema really but here is some advice. If you like it quiet go to an early morning showing on a weekday. I recently went to see La La Land at 09:40 on a Friday morning and there was only one other person in there at the same time, perfect! Tip two, take your own food... More

I have visited this cinema 8 times this year and on every occasion the toilets in the foyer have been out of action. Come on vue / gunwarf its about time this was sorted. Otherwise an average cinema experience.

After paying £3.49 for a £1 packet of sweets, we watched Fantastic Beasts, which was fantastic. Cinema was filthy. The foyer was covered in popcorn and spilt drink. After the film we went to the toilets adjacent to screen 7. On going through the swing doors the stench of urine confirmed we were heading in the right direction, but it... More

I go there about twice a month and yes the food is expensive, the seat arms are wearing out but that's ok. Just fix the toilets!!!! I reckon the main ones in the foyer have been out of order on and off for about 50% of this year!
