Cinema is in poor condition - seats are threadbare and broken but the film was fab. Carpets are sticky and generally grubby.

Disgusting place, filthy with disinterested staff. Seats damaged, lumpy and uncomfortable also far too hot and loud. Watched Jurasic World and it was spoiled by people constantly talking - no staff around to address this issue. The place is full of tracksuited chavs and it...More

We visited this cinema to watch Cars3. We found it relatively expensive in comparison with others and the décor was very dark, tired and worn. The screen was on the 3rd floor and the décor was the same throughout the building. Screen 6 was in...More
