they have done it again! Everytime a film like this comes on - woman in black - times are ridiculous!!. Weekend showing - first one 20.45!! What's that all about - why not show it from the afternoon!! We are adult and know the procedure! It's so annoying. They do it every time. Come on management - do your job... More

lovely modern cinema plenty of film choice and not expensive well worth a visit. We found that the afternoon showing at 3pm fitted in very well with time to get back to hotel and change before evening meal.

A very nice place with four screens. Wherever you sit you can be guaranteed of an uninterupted view, as the seats are tierd very well. During the winter they have a bonus for pensioners, every 2 weeks. On a Thursday morning you can watch a film & have a free hot drink & a biscuit for just £4.

walked from our hotel to this cinema (Fistral Beach) and it was a lovely 15 minute walk with a great venue at end. Friendly staff.

OK it is the only one, but it is multiscreen and up to date having been built just a few years ago. A minor niggle it was built on the site of the Vic bars - the best live music venue in Newquay. Parking during the summer can be a real problem costing half as much as the cinema admission... More

On Sat night, I paid £7.5 for a new movie,which I think is a bargain compared to big cities. The chairs were comfy with a decent leg room. The screen was big and the sound system was really good. Highly recommend.

I came here to see Boxtrolls during the October Half Term. One thing a disliked about this place is that the show times for the films are not very flexible. For instance, they would only showcase one film on one day of the week, at one time, which is a bit ridiculous. Nonetheless, the film was great, the screening and... More

My 7 year old and I paid a last minute trip to the movies to see Maze Runner whilst in half term holidays in Newquay. Cheap prices compared to where I live which is good, but disappointed with lack of snacks available to buy being just sweets and popcorn available. Nice to have choice of hot dogs / nachos etc...

I am really glad you enjoyed your evening with us. We used to sell Hot Dogs, however recently stopped due to very poor sales. I appreciate that if you were expecting more hot food options you may have been disappointed and perhaps we could make this clearer on our advertising, which we will certainly look into. As the previous review... More

Bit of a gem in a seaside town like Newquay. Plenty of screen choices and time to eat out before any main shows (if you plan it right... ;) ) Really nice staff, bright and clean, comfy seats. Film of choice that night was Fury, excellent screening and sound quality :) Proper job Newquay! :D
