“early evening showings are the best option”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Having visited this cinema several times, i find the best time to go is the earlier evening slots. There isn't has much hassle from the large groups of youths hanging around. Parking can be a pain and the car park can be dangerous..watch out for drivers who just drive around with their eyes closed. Later sessions tend to be noisy. Staff are very nice, prices for snacks etc are like other cinemas, outrageous.
The VIP seats arent that comfy and it annoys me when people who havent paid VIP just go sit in the seats anyway, this seems to happen alot they move when you come along to claim your seat.

“Not bad during the day.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

I have visited this cinema twice now and found that the midweek daytime visit was the safer option.

At night it seems like there are large groups of youths stood around glaring at anyone coming near and in the actual cinema itself, there are many people talking all the way through films and using their mobile phones.. not exactly worth the rising admission prices.

I have noticed Vue now offer an over-18 screening, where apparently you can avoid the above for a higher price, personally I think it would just be a better idea if they employed more people to monitor each screen.

Quite a clean cinema though and toilets spotless from what I saw.

“If yoyu want to avoid trouble avoid this cinema”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

I've regularly seen trouble with out of control youths and drinks at this cinema, so avoid. Sad it attracts such people.

“Good but the prices are too steep”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

I loved going to the cinema as a kid and my kids love it too, but the one thing sadly letting it down in all cinema's these days is the prices. Myself my husband and our two kids rarely visit the cinema these days purely because of cost. For us 4 to watch and get popcorn and a drink it literally costs us nearly £50 to watch a film, so whilst the vue cinema is good, clean and fun, its prices are a little too high for my liking.
