We are Cineworld Unlimited members, but had avoided visiting The Screening Rooms as there is approximately an extra £5 per person charge. After visiting last night we wish we had gone earlier. This makes going to the cinema a special experience, you are not part of a large crowd having to filter through in a long queue, you feel more... More

Average film , made enjoyable with a gin & tonic . Comfy chairs .... although I did notice there were children under 18years after 5pm . Approximately under 10years . Which irritated me somewhat after last year my 17year old was refused a child friendly film after 5pm . As apparently the cheltenham screening rooms don't allow under 18years after... More

Love this venue in Cheltenham - comfy seats, waitress service - very civilised! Worth paying the extra fee to make it more of an occasion

Such a great place to watch films without the crowds, noise, gallons of coke and vast buckets of popcorn to distract. Instead there are several small screening rooms, with service of drinks and food to the seat. It costs more but well worth the extra. Worth signing up online for a small discount.

I went to see La La Land. For the iconic, apparently single take, opening scene I saw ... a waitress standing in front of me delivering food orders to other people. I tried to peer round her but by the time she shuffled along a little bit the impact of the scene was lost. If you're going to have waitress... More

First off lovely concept, lots of seat space, although seats not very supportive but still comfortable. Service however is poor. Told we had to order drinks and food in our seats but there were no menus so they had to go get menus rather than telling us what's available. Then they ran out of time before start of movie and...

We just loved this place. What a wonderful idea having table service for drinks and food before you watch your movie. Really comfortable leather seats. Go mid-afternoon as it is alot cheaper than evening time.

Visited the Screening Rooms to watch 25th anniversary showing of Miss Saigon. Fabulous film watched in luxurious surroundings. Wide leather seats with masses of leg room, nibbles and drink orders taken from your seat and on payment delivered to your seat - enjoy an acoholic or soft drink and a snack from a comprehensive menu. No bumping elbows and sheer... More

The ONLY way to watch the cinema screen! Waiter service, great food and fantastically comfy chairs! Be careful you don't get too comfortable as you may just fall asleep!!
