What they’ve done to this old cinema is an abomination. Recently visited for the first time since they turned the glorious old Screen 1 into a bunch of smaller ones. The seating layout in the tiny room was odd, with half the seats at a...More

Great cinema! Very clean space with great options to buy snacks. Unfortunately, they close the doors at 9pm which seems a bit early.

Great cinema - lovely decor. So sad it is due to close in 2019. It needs to be supported. Comfortable seating in multiplex cinema. You can still see lovely decor in the corridors.

I've been to this cinema several times, the cinema is clean, prices are better than Cineworld and the screens are an impressive size but there has been two occasions where I was literally shivering with the cold in the large screenings I was in.
