I came to the Reel cinema at the weekend to watch Beauty and the Beast, I have always been to Vue cinema so surprised at how cheap it was, it felt like a theatre at the West End, absolutely stunning venue, very old fashioned (in a good way) the only let down was the fact I think the cleaners are...

Honestly, I wouldn't mind too much the "tiny" screen and the dirty floor. But today the screen was flickering dark continuously, from the beginning to the end of the movie. I mean, seriously? I would get a better experience from my laptop. The audio also sucks, but that's not a news. Very bad experience, even for such a low price.

I love this little cinema. It's a lot cheaper than a bigger name unless you have Meerkat Movies or something similar, and as I'm only ever in Plymouth on a weekend, that's not much use. It's almost half the price of the cinema I tend to visit in Bristol. I was told before the first time I visited by a... More

Yes although cheaper than Vue and other cinemas was overall disappointed with Reel, very dirty in places and really looking worse for ware. Even the small screen, broken chairs etc were all ok but the attendant also forgot to turn the lights off when the film started and took 10 minutes to find someone to turn them off!

It is a local cinema for anyone living close to town. It is much cheaper than most places, but in need of updating.

Ok, so the seats are very small and the screens are very small too (compared to the bigger cinema brands) but the low prices justify it. Great range of snacks and drinks and it looks very old inside now however, you still see the same film at less than half the price of the Vue. Perfect little cinema for the... More

Saw "Sing" in Screen 3.. tiny screen, not much of a slope so even adults would struggle having a clear view, floor dirty, uncomfortably warm. Want these sort of places to survive but would pay extra and travel further for a better experience. Other screens look better on photos so maybe overall things aren't too bad.

Went to see Hacksaw Ridge in Screen 3, the smaller auditorium with the more modern seats. An excellent film watched in comfortable surroundings at a very reasonable price - less than half that charged at Vue Cinema I believe. Wouldn't hesitate to say that we'll be visiting again, hopefully at frequent intervals.

Value for money cinema. Can't beat reel on price. Though wish the seats were a little bit more comfortable lol.

OK its not the best cinema in Plymouth but its the best value around 40% cheaper. Great location in the centre of town, comfy seats and very friendly service. Enjoyed the film.
