We had pre booked our seats, due to taking a 77 year old we booked an isle seat so he could extend his legs. When we got to the cinema we went straight to the ticket machine to collect our tickets only to be told we had to wait in line( kind of defeated the object of pre booking). After... More

Conveniently located close to KFC, McDonalds and Pizza Hut, the cinema, a multi-screen one, always has a good variety of films to watch. Always up with the latest releases.

I also found there was very little leg room and I'm... More

We visited this cinema because we were staying in the area and particularly wanted to go to an event (Monty Python Live) showing. I am glad the concert was so good because the cinema wasn't! On arrival we asked for directions to the toilets, the staff member told me where the ladies was but I had asked for the disabled... More

I am a fond film go-er and often visit this cinema at least once a month. I have never been amazed at the place nor have i been bitterly dissopointed. It does the job for the town!!!

the atmosphere and decor are what you would expect from a cinema. good viewing experience. the price of food is slightly too expensive and the limited staff means you can be queuing for a long time

I loved seeing the film however the hotdog left a bit to be desired, as stale bun, however that was my only complaint and given the friendly nature off the staff, had I mentioned it, it would have been remedied straight away
