I have always loved this cinema from as long as I can remember. The staff are friendly and the seats comfortable as well as being in a shopping centre.

We went to see Bohemian Rhapsody and had a very good experience. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful and we had a great view of the screen. The seats are very comfortable with plenty of legroom. Plenty of parking space and free parking.

What can you say about a Cinema? They all tend to be dark inside with comfortable seats and decent sound. That applies to the Plaza. We watched the new Lady Ga Ga film - "A Star is Born" - it was a surprise to see...More
