“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

This cinema is in a league of its own. The size of the building, being the tallest in the world, is worth going to see a film in. The bar on the 2nd floor is defiantly worth a stop into after seeing a film and is a great way to chat afterwards. The prices are standard, about £6 for a film and another £6 for popcorn & drinks. All of the screens that we have been to have been great quality for visual and sound. I have never been to the cinema here and seen it not busy so make sure to book your tickets in advance because they tend to sell out of a lot of films. If you get the opportunity, they do show some smaller films and older ones as well which I would recommend going to see (it is always fun to see them on the big screen). Enjoy the views, film, and then a drink at the bar to make a great night out.

“Good mix of films, great building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

This cinema seems to have a better mix of films than most - the usual blockbusters but also some smaller films too. As with most cinemas the quality of the nibbles could be better and prices could also be better. The building is great for views over the city and there is a nice bar inside too although you can't take alcoholic drinks into the theatre.

“Busy cinema in a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

This cinema is very easy to find and is in a nice central location. It shows a wide variety of films and seems to be very busy, so I'd recommend buying tickets ahead of time if possible.
Tickets are expensive but then aren't they everywhere?
There are plenty of machines where you can buy your tickets, and transportation to the different screens is easy (and quite fun) on the escalators or by lift. The food areas were efficiently run and signs were clear. The seats were comfortable and the sound quality was excellent. I will visit this cinema the next time I'm in Glasgow.

“Best Cineworld in the UK in my opinion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

I am a Cineworld Unlimited customer and I live in Glasgow but work in London.
I attend cinema at least once a week (often more) in London and elsewhere but only the central Glasgow branch meets my expectations of a cinema.
The size of the complex (the tallest cinema in the world) means that theres always a lot of choice and overall its a great venue.
The only drawback is the size of queues at peak times but this is improving with more options for online ordering.

“My experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

I went to this cinema to see Twlight Breaking Dawn Part 2. It was amazing, especially viewing the movie in 3D. The seats where very comfortable and the movie was great.
