Reclining chairs with plenty of space between the rows so you don't get kicked by that annoying kid with the long legs who cannot sit still. No, I did not pay for the posh seats, these were the standard. Well done showcase setting the standard for all to achieve

We started coming here last autumn, we come fairly regular as we have meerkat movie codes, love the recliner chairs and the sound is brilliant, definitely the best experience of cinemas here

This cinema is everything you could wish for, Great sound, amazing seats, spotless toilets, but, take a blanket with you, or wear thermal underwear as it's absolutely freezing, they try to say it's because there is an outside wall, BUT, all of the cinemas have air conditioning which shoots down on you like a mountain breeze - management please sort this

I was worried when I walked in, when I saw how good it looked, how modern and beautiful it looked, it was like a plush bar, the staff all smart and attentive. You can order your beer and take it in with you etc. The lazy boy chairs, go up and down, back and legs up, and very wide, with soft leather ... cup holder Andrew so much leg room, no one disturbs you. No one with a fuzzy or tall hairdo in front of you will ever get in your view because of the angle of the seating arrangement. I was so pleased with the price of the tickets, I thought I would have to sell a kidney for a seat ...
The sound is fantastic ..super surround sound.
The only draw back for me was a family of 1 mum and 3 kids to the right of me, who had clearly seen the film before, and sang all the way through it over the top of the music, and when there was no music,....and just 'talking' on the movie,...all I could hear was them rustling around with paper bags of popcorn putting their arms right down to their elbows into the bags.. then chomping on popcorn with their mouths wide open...or rustling sweet wrappers unwrapping them and screwing them into balls of rubbish.
If showcase could do sound proof booths .....but with personal surround sound, then that would be even better.
Still it could have been worse- they weren't on their phones,?

Enjoyed our first trip to this cinema. The seats were very comfortable with semi-reclining positions, leather upholstery and good views of the screen.
Our only criticism was the air conditioning was up far too high. We were both really cold which spoilt the experience.
Good value for seniors during a Monday afternoon.
