The most badly maintained cinema hall would be at Ikeja Mall. The sound system wasa flop show and the AC in the hall wasnt sufficiently functioning. Found very difficult to sit in theatre and watch Fate of the furious 8. When we reported to the staffs they just didnt care about our request. Bad experience.

This establishment used to be that hallmark of prime cinematic experience in Lagos but it's screen rooms have possibly been through a lot in terms of traffic. Most of the chairs are currently worn and need replacement. Parking has always been a major issue and is yet to be addressed, years down the line. This remains a sore point for... More

Quite untidy and the seats are not very comfortable. Even the food outside is limited. Most of the time, their pop-corn machine is out of order or they have only sweet pop-corn and not the salted ones. However, there isn't much choice as overall cinemas in Lagos are more or less the same.

The theatre is well located. The screen could have been a bit brighter. The POS machines at the box office weren't functioning, hence had to pay in cash. Inconvenient. The caramel pop corn was sweet and uniform. Had a fun time watching Captain America. Enjoyed clicking pictures with the Angry Birds.

I visited the cinema two days ago and found that the screens are not sharp enough for viewing. I suppose it is not HD. The waiting area was littered with popcorn!

one shouldn't be expecting much from this place, as Victoria island really lacks good or see able shopping places. From the exterior the place looks marvelous. But the interior is poorly maintained. Lack of lighting, some area of damaged hand rail, the elevators look scary as the interior light is gone and seem dirty.

The Silverbird galleria used to be the IT place when we had no where else to go chill, but now its just a cinema and a mini mall. No big tourist attraction here except you just want to see movies and eat some food later. Its aight.

A relatively okay place to watch a movie. Though there appears to be a shopping mall, it really looks overpriced so you will hardly see anyone shopping You want to watch a movie? Visit them. Anything else, maybe you need to go elsewhere

This was the first modern cinema in Nigeria after the collapse of older ones. The cinema is one of the best I've visited but the seats are old and can be better. The staff at the concession stands can maybe smile some more?! Parking IS a problem though depending on what time of day you go but I hear they... More
