Bad experience of customer service
Aug 2021 • Couples
We were visiting Colwyn Bay and stumbled across Current exhibition of Michael Bennett’s Pier Closing Time photographs at Theatr Colwyn. As a keen film photographer it was fantastic to see this type of poignant exhibition being shown. However, we walked in to the theatre and having never been before, we wasn’t sure where to find the exhibition so waited in the reception. Behind us, two men walked in and out popped a male member of staff who immediately greeted the two men, asking if they were here for the photos. We stood there awkwardly whilst he chatted away about photography and other exhibitions to the other visitors and then proceeded to take them upstairs. After informing the staff member that we were also there for the exhibition the staff member rudely said “oh I assumed you were with the men”. This came across like he assumed we were the girlfriends of the male visitors and what was worse was that when we all went up for thur exhibition the staff member continued to explain the exhibition to the men only and completely ignored us.
The exhibition itself was small but a great memento of the late 70s and North Wales holidays and worth a viewing, for fans of Vivienne Maier.

A Theatre with personality!

We went to see the film 1917 last night and really enjoyed the film. A visit to Theatr Colwyn is always a special occasion as the staff are so welcoming and helpful. It was very full last night so it must be a popular venue. Llawer o ddiolch.

National Theatre Live and other stuff
Sep 2019 • Solo
It is fantastic that Colwyn Bay Theatre has got involved with National Theatre Live
For anyone who doesn’t know what NTL is, it’s a way fantastic way of seeing London West End shows and The Royal Shakespeare Company productions your door step and at a fraction of the cost. They beam it live from the Theatre in London, sometimes they do encore showings which is a recording of a live performance.
Apart from NTL, Colwyn Bay Theatre also have a fantastic Christmas Pantomime and show current films.
The staff are always friendly and it is always very clean.

We love coming here to watch new films. The staff are always helpful. I love that we can come and see films without having to travel to far and it's usually cheaper too.

Noisy!
Aug 2019 • Family
We took our 9 year old daughter to see Toy Story 4 at the 2.30pm showing on Wednesday. Oh my days! It was so noisy! Every time someone got up off their seat, the seat would bang on the back - children were getting up and down to the toilet every 2 seconds. I saw a few children go 4 or 5 times during the film!! - it was just ridiculous. There were 4 young boys who were having a competition as to who could bang their seat the loudest. Another lady came in with a baby who was no more than 6 months old and who kept crying, and she didnt take it out. All the children were rustling sweet wrappers all the way through the film. We also had a little girl aged about 2 in front of us and all she wanted to was climb on the seats and talk the whole way through. What a shame because it's a nice little theatre and it's relatively cheap in comparison to the bigger chain cinemas- im just glad i dont live in the area and have to use this venue all the time. If you want to actually hear the film you have booked and paid to see, then dont go to this venue, particularly a 'kids' film in the afternoon.

Great small theatr
Feb 2019 • Family
What a lovely old theatr.
Have visited to see few films recently
Really clean, fantastic value, much cheaper than Vue
The tickets great value, there is small bar cafe and again reasonable prices.
OK so no Dolby surround sound but otherwise lovely theatr.

Recommend a visit both see the latest release which they have surprising soon after release date

Also they show singalong ie greatest showman
And stream live performances

Why go to big chain expensive cinema when you can visit this lovely theatr.
