Having paid £19.50 for my granddaughter and I to see 'Sing' - which would have cost £5 for both of us had Clacton cinema not been full, our experience from start to finish was woeful. They couldn't make my g/d her creamy cooler in the Costa because 'We're too busy to do all the washing up and the creamy cooler... More

Odeon Colchester is the Pits. If there was another half decent cinema this would close down within a week. Staffed by children,. Poor screens only designed to pack as many people in a possible. Now there's not even a ticket desk. You have to buy tickets at the sweet counter or use the rubbish online service that breaks as soon... More

I usually go to Cineworld in a nearby town because I have always been disappointed by the Odeon, but didn't feel like a journey, big mistake. There was popcorn and general rubbish all over the floor, seats etc and the toilets were filthy, smelt dirty and had no toilet roll. Get your act together management, clean the place up!!

Staff extremely helpful = no faults there. the place is quite grubby, Could do with a lick of paint, I mean cinemas must be raking it in at what they charge, perhaps they should think about refurbishment.

We recently visited The Odeon in Colchester as film we wanted to see was not showing at our local cinema. It's a bit tired and dated compared to some modern cinemas but the seats were comfortable enough and we would go back there if we couldn't see any future films at our local cinema.

I came here to watch The Jungle Book with a friend of mine and we were both unhappy. There a long queues and a lot of waiting around. The tickets cost way too much. Other than that, it is a standard cinema, but I'm not too happy with the trip.

My husband and I went to see a film on Sunday night - tickets easy to book and straightforward to collect on arrival. A bottle of water and one scoop of chocolate raisons cost us £5.80! Extortionate. Toilets are always pretty grotty but my biggest disappointment was that the lights were too bright during the film! It was such a... More
