“Old, Dated, Sticky, Smelly”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

This is the only choice for cinema goers in Great Yarmouth, its such a shame that this beautiful old building has been left to suffer.

Some of the screens are basically like walking into someone living room with cinema seating (old school) and having a Big Screen TV.

I don't think it will be long before this venue closes it doors for the last time when the new Odeon opens its doors at the other end of the seafront next year.

“great nostalgic cinema!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

a great venue that makes you feel its all about the films not the making money!
We went to see Smurfs 2, the sound was perfectly balanced so that the soundtrack didnt drown out the voices, we didnt suddenly get deafened during an action scene after straining to hear the quieter scenes as in other cinemas weve been to, it was a relief!
the snacks were a tad pricey, but cheaper tickets than others so thats obviously where they make a profit. just a shame popcorn was so stale as it wasnt pleasant.
Staff were welcoming and friendly and made it a good visit.

“Great little cinema”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

A wonderful cinema away from the haunts of the big chains. Sadly they overcharge you on food and drink like everyone else, but we got to see the latest releases at reduced prices from the bigger cinemas. Comfier seating would be nice, epsecially for long films.

“A good old cinema...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Good to visit on rainy days, it is well placed with good parking.
The inside is a little run down, but i quite like this as opposed to the big multiplexes.
Nice to hear the Pearl and Dean theme again...makes you feel like you are really at the cinema!
