Sat in screen two to watch our film. Cinema was clean and tidy and staff were all friendly and helpful. Sound quality was poor as during our films quite moments we could hear the sound from the screen next door

Watched Lion, and loved it. We arrived early and sat at the bar and had a drink. We purchased a drink and Krax to take in with us, both reasonably priced. Cinema was lovely, old fashioned with a curtain (just how I had hoped) sound and projection was great, seats were moderate, if not a little worn, and maybe due... More

I've been a movie magic card member for 3 years as it does reduce the prices further for a ticket even though the tickets are affordable and cheap! And I just love this cinema! The staff are always lovely and really kind and helpful! They offer good deals for Popcorn and drinks are always good compared to other cinemas. The... More

As a local family, we all have movie magic cards which mean we can afford to see the latest film releases together. With the cards, the cinema offers excellent value for money and it cost us the same for 6 people to see "Moana" as it would have done for 2 of us to see at at a multiplex in... More

Screen 1 was dirty and very tired - chairs had ripped material and one hesitated to sit in them as they looked dirty. The floor was disgustingly sticky and dirty although in all fairness, the steward called up for some cleaning materials to clean it when we mentioned it. However, the whole building needs some capital investment in order to... More

I have reviewed this cinema before and graded it lower than 4 stars. This time we were in screen 7 and I am much more impressed. This screen must have been done up more recently than the one I previously went to (upstairs, maybe screen 1 or 2?) and was a very welcome improvement. The seats are now, especially, small... More
