“Heart of colwyn bay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Such an asset to colwyn bay, very nicely revamped and great to take the kids to the cinema slightly cheaper, its just a shame there has been a sudden sharp increase in the prices.

Cant wait for the Christmas panto!! we have front row tickets and it was a bargain price for this show! excited!

“On-line booking is hopeless”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

I've just tried to book several shows with Theatr Colwyn on-line, and, after 30 mins, have given up. Each time my basket shows £0.00.

“Love A Proper Cinema!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Its not too warm its not too cold its not too loud or quiet.
The recent cinema upgrade for me at least, means there's no reason to suffer the bigger corporate 'ciniplex' rip off experience.
In Theatr Colwyn you're greeted by friendly staff and volunteers who care that you enjoy whatever you've come to see. you don't have to remortgage to by some popcorn nor will you be refused entry if you brought your own winegums. and the seats are comfy too :D

“What a cinema should be!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Long history. Recently refurbished to a high standard with very good sound system. Shows most new films if you're prepared to wait a while till they have been through the local muli-plex cinema. Excellent venue for shows. Comfortable seats. Good value, with a pleasant tea/coffee bar in foyer. Well worth a visit.

“Small but beautifully formed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

The theatre has recently undergone a huge refurbishment and is now very smart. It has hosted many famous people over the years and although small I have seen Ken Dodd there several times and Brian Blessed on a book tour. There have of course been many others. It is also a cinema and shows many of the latest films in much more civilized surroundings than the huge multi-screen about 3 miles away, and much cheaper! It also does digital link-ups to live performances from the National Theatre and others. You can see live London theatre, right up close - not from The Gods if you were probably in the actual theatre - and you pay around £12 rather than £100 odd for a ticket. Plus you don't have the aggro of travel and can go home to your own bed! Visit the website http://www.theatrcolwyn.co.uk/.
