Decent film choice but food and drink are expensive if taking children, i am sure that they would sell much more if prices were more reasonable. I take some sweets and a carton drink in for our grand children simply because after paying for tickets i have no more money spare. I know this is frowned on but i feel... More

Very very expensive. Staff can be rude or really shy. Take your own food and drink if you want to leave with money otherwise you'll leave skint👛👝

We had pre booked our seats, due to taking a 77 year old we booked an isle seat so he could extend his legs. When we got to the cinema we went straight to the ticket machine to collect our tickets only to be told we had to wait in line( kind of defeated the object of pre booking). After... More

Conveniently located close to KFC, McDonalds and Pizza Hut, the cinema, a multi-screen one, always has a good variety of films to watch. Always up with the latest releases.

I visit the cinema rarely not for any other reason than due to the price it is treat. However a film comes along that has to be seen on the big screen. I like the fact you can book the seat you want and staff are usually friendly and enthusiastic about the film you are going to see. The day... More

Took my daughter to see how to train your dragon 2 recently. Bit disappointed with paying just under £6 for a 2 year old especially one that doesn't weigh enough to keeps the seats down (no fault of the cinema) so sat on my knee all the way through. I also found there was very little leg room and I'm... More

We visited this cinema because we were staying in the area and particularly wanted to go to an event (Monty Python Live) showing. I am glad the concert was so good because the cinema wasn't! On arrival we asked for directions to the toilets, the staff member told me where the ladies was but I had asked for the disabled... More
