“IMAX at Cineworld”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Took my son to see "Gravity" this afternoon. Have both seen the film in 2D but though an IMAX experience might be a better way to enjoy the visuals.
Got parked ok, although I can see how this could have been a problem id a handful more visitors had landed at the same time.
Disabled bays are located smack outside the main entrance.
The foyer is large and full of light. There is a Starbucks, which we made us of, a bar on the floor above, and the usual Cineworld ice - cream, popcorn, drinks etc.
The IMAX theatre is enormous. Ascending to the back seats, as we did, is the equivalent of climbing to the 3rd storey - escalators and lifts to take you back downstairs.
There are areas for wheelchair - users with seats for carers. Generally very comfortable, sound and screen are first rate.

“ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

The price is high and we couldn't find anywhere to park! We had to use the Motorpoint arena and even after arriving in good time we still missed 20 minutes of the film trying to park! Overall was good very noisy and organised caos! Very busy and not very organised, would visit again though

“Massive let down ”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

Nowhere to park, cross noise between cinemas. Just really low quality. A really disappointing experience. If you go, allow an hour for parking. It really is pathetic.

“Nightmare !!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Car park fiasco !! 25 minutes to get a space and then 40 minutes to get out of the place !!!!

The place is OK....... with the exception that there are far too many attractions for the size of the car park.

If you go leave plenty of time either side of your visit. I'll not be rushing back for that reason alone.
