Exceptional.

Absolutely can’t fault it really can you? The price on a Wednesday is £3! Where else can you go and watch a film for that price? Cheaper than renting or buying a film at home with the luxury of sitting in a nice clean cinema. Even on other days it’s just £6. Can’t fault it one bit and will definitely be returning.

Fab Intimate Cinema
Jul 2019
This cute little cinema is a must, the new big complexes are good, but for something a little special - if you are on Anglesea go and watch something at the cinema, the only way these places stay open is if we use them, one Covid-19 is near an end they will need us even more. We can't wait to come back.

Nice frame with fun slides but needs a good clean!!
Feb 2020
This play centre is OK but is in desperate need of a good scrub. Sticky floors, sticky/dirty mats, layers of dust in areas you can't get to (no big deal but not good impression management).
If it wasn't so gross I'd go back! The big frame is good and has a small area for younger children. Good slides. Would say essential for parent to go with under 4s/5s when exploring big frame, particularly when busy.

Great value,comfortable modern cinema
Feb 2020
Booked on line on a Monday to select seat to watch award winning film "1917" on the Weds ( 16.30pm). Unbelievable half price mid-week cost of £3. Where else could you see a top film at this price, when film has only just come out.?
Cinema run by Holyhead Town Council. Seats are spacious,& very comfortable- I estimated it held about 100. 3 flights of stairs however, but there is a lift- which I have been informed is a bit unreliable ( tends to stop mid way- but if you keep pressing button it will get to top/bottom !) Maybe, this has now been repaired ?
Plenty of parking in and around the cinema- even the main St.Cybi car park is only 3 mins walk away !
Any visitors to Anglesey looking for something to do on a wet day, just look up what's on in the Empire & book your tickets on-line ! Highly recommended.
You would have to pay 3-4 times as much at the nearest large cinema complex in Llandudno Junction.

Great value

We went to see Downton Abbey. There was a special rate for September which was a welcome suprise. The staff at the ticket desk were friendly and very helpful. Although a small cinema the seats were comfortable.

Review for Empire play centre
Aug 2019
Cheap entry fee. Most of it toddler friendly. However the seating area is very crammed and needs to be a lot more spacious. Also would be ideal if the "cafe" sold more than just drinks and a few chocolate bars and sweets for example light snacks and refreshments.

Great Midweek Cinema Experience
Jun 2019 • Family
After reading previous reviews, we booked a midweek showing (16:30) which was ideal for under 5s especially if the weather is not too good. I would recommend booking online as about 50 seats available.

Local success story.
Mar 2019 • Couples
We spend many weekends on the island and have found the play area fantastic for our grandson, but this weekend we decided to visit the cinema. This was a great experience and very cheap at £5.50 for an adult ticket. This is a success story for the local council and one we will continue to support.

Relax and Enjoy
Dec 2018 • Family
This cinema has gone through numerous improvement which has benefited Holyhead locals and visitors alike and it a gem when one considers the other alternative is a trip to Llandudno over an hour drive away. The films on show are current and my son and family regularly visit the cinema. The sound and audio are modern giving good effects to movies. The shop is well stocked with goodies and confectionary. The building also boasts a children's fun room, and a visit here is also a must. Prices for the cinema are reasonable and good value and the information is available on the website providing timings for film shows.
