I went with my friends, all ages 15-16, all those that are 15 often get mistaken for older and somehow when we went to the cinema they refused to accept that any of us was over 15 (it was Blair witch, a 15 rated movie) except one, and we were a group of around 7! All of us look 15... More

My partner has been a regular since a child and I've gotta say that I love it. The food is way cheaper than other cinemas and it tastes amazing (especially the popcorn) staff are nice and the screens are in good conditions. Always going to come back to this place when I'm in Cumbria

With no other cinemas around (other than a very small limited one in the next town) Plaza takes advantage of this by not requiring their staff to give good basic customer service. A smile or perhaps "enjoy the film" would go a long way. Plaza is the perfect example of no competition so need to bother.

We visit the cinema at least twice a month. Seats are comfy with lots of leg room. Snacks are good. Staff friendly. Affordable afternoon /night out

Went with my daughter and two young grandchildren to see Trolls. Had booked seats online and therefore was able to go to machine to get tickets ourselves. Only wait we had was to get drinks and snacks. Seats were very comfortable and viewing very good. Overall had a pleasant time

I’ve been here a couple of times in the last month - once to see Bridget Jones and then again to see Deepwater Horizon. I like how you can buy drinks and snacks when you purchase yours tickets now, as opposed to having to queue twice as before. The cinema seating is spacious and comfortable. I notice the price of...

Have been coming to Workington plaza for many years, I was upset to find the bar area closed and you had to queue up in a long queue of popcorn and sweet lovers to get a beer/wine. Bring it back......
