“My favourite cinema”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

I have been going to the Majestic for at least 40 years. The building has character and has been modernised over the years and now is fully digital. Sound is also good. Seats are comfortable, prices are the best in the area with many offers on through the week including Orange Wednesday, student rates & cheap Mondays. Even better news is that it will be having more screens in future.

“Up Goes the Popcorn!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

I like the Majestic Cinema very much, and the staff were very helpful when my nephew tipped up all his popcorn on the stairs. I went down to explain what had happened and they were more interested in knowing that he was ok which I was very pleased about, although I was more concerned about people tredding in the popcorn.

I think the cinema is worth a visit due to its character.

The only downfall I have is that they don't put enough films on for the older generation, even when its term time.

“Small screen, noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

I know we're used to multiplex cinemas but this was disappointing. Screen was small and the sound was marred by what sounded like a big fan going on through the film.
Worst of all NO PICK AND MIX. :-)

“Not bad, but not great either”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Beautiful old building but not all that well converted in to a cinema. The seats can get a little uncomfortable after a while. The sound system is awful, speech can be muffled and difficult to understand. It could really do with some investment before someone else has the idea to build something better nearby and kill it.
