Went to see bohemian rhapsody with my partner. The cinema was clean, the staff were friendly and the seats are so comfortable. As with all cinemas the food and drinks are over priced but thats nothing new.

This is a good cinema with a variety of movies and cheap tickets - however the downside is where they sell the food and tickets is at the same place so you can expect to be waiting upto 30-45 mins in busy periods for service....More

Everyone behaved like animals during the film. Persistent noise and child like behaviour. Security dealing with issues everywhere.. people running through ticket point without a care in the world. Endless queues for refreshments. I'd rather pay more and enjoy a movie surrounded by decent people.

This is not a designated Premier Vue, but is much better than many that are! Modern cinema with comfy seats. Not many staff around, so suggest you prebook your tickets.

The seating was clean and comfortable but it was really cold. Bring a few jackets with you if you’re visiting. Sound and quality of the film was great.

I don't think the staff realise their first consideration is ensure the film-goer sees the film. Nobody on the box office, no indication of how to purchase tickets if not at the automated service. Food you can have aplenty and eat it loudly as possible...More
