I only go here if I have a voucher or am lucky to get free tickets here as it is expensive to watch a film here. Even if you have a cineworld card you need to pay a supplement. Love the seating as they are very comfortable and plenty of seats. The rows do curve towards the screen. Also love... More

Great cinema and even better now it's Cineworld! Wish they would show more films though. Good parking facilities.

Loved this venue. Interesting to look at it and great on the inside. Gigantic screen and a huge amount of seats, but must say that the 3D on the trailers was far superior to the 3D in the 2.5hr film I then sat through. Came out wanting to vomit cause it was all too much between the size of the... More

The imax 3D is way better than the normal cinema 3D, the screen is huge and the seats curve around it in rows. You are given your glasses when you go to sit down and hand them back after the film. Prices are a bit steep but its a great experience all the same. We bought and paid online then... More

We watched American Sniper on A Sunday at 12 o'clock and were the only 2 in the place! Nice that there is a Starbucks so you can get a decent coffee to take in with you.

Saw "Interstellar" here. The staff were very friendly and the seating was comfortable. Sound system worked just fine.

Great place to watch movies in IMAX, been there with friends a couple of times. Only downside is the accessibility of the place with public transports which is not great, and the ergonomic of the glasses.

We usually attend the IMAX on special occasions and today we had booked tickets for the hobbit. As previously stated there's no doubting the quality of the screen and sound however the whole experience was dampened withe the parking situation. So you get a ticket, then queue to have it validated to qualify for a cheaper price (£3 instead of... More

This is the largest IMAX screen in Scotland, so my wife and I decided to view the new movie "Interstellar" there on a Sunday evening. While there is no doubt about the size of the screen, and the quality of the viewing experience, the overall experience falls far short. The majority of people would drive to this IMAX and park...

Great viewing and sound experience, it's really worthwhile seeing certain films here. Would really benefit from getting a pick n' mix section (especially instead of a Starbucks which is downstairs?!). Also, free tap water should be easily available. I asked a member of staff at the Snacks counter for one, who explained that their soda cups could only be used... More
