Scored some free tickets to a movie, incredible to think sitting in deck chairs while the others lay in bean bags, eating popcorn for breakfast, how incredible is that. Thank you Capital E, you have amazing events and we are very grateful that you do.

Awful!! This place is central down-town and is Grotty with a capital G. Toilets are old and run down. The baby change room is shocking, when do the cleaners visit this place, dirty, old and nothing to do!! A complete waste of space!
