Expensive

I used to go every Tuesday, when it was cheaper, but you can only get the Tuesday discount online now, which I found a hassle. Food and beverages are pretty high priced too and the seats are a little hard but I like the recliner. The screen and sound system is pretty good.

I won't hold the 20 minutes of commercials against them.

slow ticket office
Sep 2019
We like this cinema because of the great reclining seats but the queue to get tickets is always so slow they had 2 people on selling both tickets and snacks on a busy Saturday afternoon. We were early or wed have missed the start of the film . We didnt want snack but had to queue with every one else. This place need organised with a booth for tickets only available . The Brunswick cinema is much better organised and we never have to wait there .

Shocking standards
Sep 2019 • Solo
The new Tarantino movie was very disappointing, that is not the fault of the cinema. What is is the shocking state of public areas, carpets filthy and strewn with popcorn, gents toilets were disgusting, so disgusting I won’t describe. I don’t think they’ve been cleaned all day and stank to the heavens. The only staff on view were in the kiosk on ground floor and finally, I watched the film in screen 4 it beggars belief that management have known for a very long time that the sound from the adjoining cinema screen can be heard in here and have done absolutely nothing to address it. From now on when I want to see a movie it’s the Moviebowl Derry for me, despite the racket from gaming machines on the way in at least the film will be enjoyed in peace

Wonderful surprise with one exception

Reclining seats intimate setting The greatest showman whats not to like
Well i can understand paying over the odds for popcorn as its the cinema thing but £3.30 for a bag of revels half full is extortion. I should have paid the £1 in any shop or supermarket
Absolutely a rip off cost £2.70 less than the actual cinema seat
What a f......... liberty

Definitely excellent day, cinema seats are electric recliners and very very comfortable. Their is loads of room to stretch out and not worried about people in front or behind. Cheap to visit on a Tuesday. Definitely will be back

New updated multiplex
Feb 2018 • Friends
The Strand multiplex has had a new overhaul. It is fantastic now, you can stretch out on your reclining chair and watch the film in comfort. The chair can be positioned in several different ways, just like home from home. Would highly recommend this cinema now.

The Marie Celeste of cinemas
Nov 2017 • Couples
Physically this cinema has been well overhauled but when we have gone there has only ever been one member of staff selling tickets. Even with so few customers this means a queue. We were given allocated seats which I would not have chosen but there were only 2 other people there so we changed. Next time I decided to book seats on the Internet. So that I could choose. Nope - wouldn’t let me pick seats I wanted although they were free! This is seriously too much hassle.

Disappointed.
May 2017 • Friends
I have not been to this cinema for quite a while due to previous poor and indifferent service.Thankfully there is a second cinema in town which provides excellent service consistently.
Went to see King Arthur last night.Running a bit late ,so was hoping to get our tickets quickly.However I was very disappointed,but unfortunately not surprised,to find only one person serving not only tickets but also drinks and snacks.There were five people in the queue in front of me and it was ten minutes before I reached the front of the queue.
Why the management cannot have extra staff providing tickets for the short time before show times escapes me.On my way into the show I counted three other staff,what there duties were I didn't have time to ascertain.
I won't be returning any time soon.

Assigned seating!!!!
May 2017 • Couples
Not sure about this one. I like to get in early so I can choose my seat. We came on an impulse so unaware you could preselect Online. Would put me off coming back if enforced.
Other than than looks really nice since renovation. Nice comfy seats.
