Following the upgrade to seating and prices during the week at £2.50 A seat £3.50 at weekends and buying the usual treats from the stall means a couple can have a night out for about £15 A bargain most definitely

This may not be the plushest, nor the most hi-tech cinema around, but its prices are a fraction of those in either Ipswich Multiplex or Colchester's Odeon. Well worth it!

Century Cinema is a great local asset and at only £2.50 a ticket it's really reasonable and the seats are big and comfy. There is also a good range of refreshments to be had at again reasonable prices.

You won’t find a better deal anywhere (unless you’re not paying of course!) £2.50 pp week days, £3.50 pp weekends, what a bargain! Most other cinema’s around you’re looking at £10ish pp. What you see is what you get! Highly recommend!

I think they're about £2.00 each. We always buy our popcorn from the cinema as it's fresh and inexpensive.
