Not overly impressed
Oct 2021 • Couples
Went to the cinema this evening early show at 5 o’clock. Went to see the Venom good film, nice seats, only 6 people in the cinema. Maybe different of a weekend. Staff didn’t come across as friendly or enthusiastic. Before the film started a member of staff arrived and announced if you are eating or drinking you don’t need to wear your mask. I think it should be down to the individual to decide if they wear their mask or not. None of use wore masks. I then visited the toilets after the film. Nowhere to hand your coat or handbag when in the cubicle. Another female came into the toilets just after me, used the toilet and walked straight out without washing her hands. Yuk. I’m not overly impressed with the cinema, and not impressed with the price. £9.50 or if you are a senior you pay £8.50. Think I prefer Camberley for the cinema.

Very poor customer experience
Oct 2021 • Family
Took my family on last day before my son went to university to see the Bond Movie. Supposed to be a relaxing treat.
Booked seats money was taken from my visa account. But when I got there they had resold my seats. There then followed 20 minutes of stress whilst 3 separate receptions asked my name and searched the system. If I hadn’t shown the visa receipt we would have been turned away. At one point I was told off by the “second manager” for raising my hand when I tried to stop him giving me a lecture on how he was trying to improve my experience. An apology would have gone a long way but sadly was not forthcoming.
Excellent movie, nice facilities, but faulty booking system and woeful customer service!

There are much better cinemas nearby. Unpleasant experience overall.

I don't find the staff very friendly, and there seems to be a lot of bureaucracy involved in simply going in, with Apps and health passes required etc that other local cinemas do not have. This can create hold ups and extensive queues just to enter if people in front are struggling with their phones, don't understand the requirements or disagree with having to do it. I find the selection of films to be unimaginative, but the addition of new protocols and requirements just to enter creates a stressful and unenjoyable environment not even remotely conducive to something that is supposed to be somewhere to go and relax and enjoy a film. I simply cannot recommend this cinema.

Do your job
Jul 2021 • Couples
This cinema has had a much needed makeover. It looks great... And the cinema screen is floor to ceiling! However..... The one job the staff member had at the entrance of the cinema was to check your ticket and tell you what screen the film was in. Did she do this? No. Instead I got questioned of my current 'covid status' and lectured over about not having the NHS app. This went on for a good 5 minutes and it was clear all I wanted to do was watch the film. If I had covid I wouldn't be leaving my house, let alone going to the cinema. Some people need to learn to stay in lane and so their job.

First night out to the cinema in a long time! Nova Woking is looking great. We were in screen 7, fantastic comfy seats & great clear screen with impactful sound! Was awful before the re-fit, will definitely be visiting again 👏

Preview Visit
Oct 2020 • Couples
I was invited along to a preview screening at the refurbished cinema, renamed the Nova Cinema.
Really spacious, well laid out foyer. Clear Covid-19 safety measures in place.
Kiosk well laid out, popcorn/ drink deals available.
We were in Screen 5 watching Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker, which I was really pleased to get to see as I missed it in December.
Very comfortable seats, great tiering so perfect view. Sound & picture quality perfect.
Highly recommend, will be back for sure. Special thanks to Nick, Dan & Danielle.

Just returned from what should of been a nice evening at the cinema!! The staff were excellent-especially the lady ‘manning’ the bar 😂 ....but we were disturbed to notice ‘things’ moving around our feet!!!!!
Cant say what they were- but really, there shouldn't be ANYTHING running around our feet!!!! More than slightly worrying to say the least 😢

The screening room was tatty and disgusting, my seat was incredibly uncomfortable, broken and ripped (almost like it had been chewed to bits by rats). i don’t recommend this cinema at all

I went to the cinema today with a friend to see the detective Pikachu movie and had a great time. The place was clean, comfy and there wasn't a mouse in sight! :-)
