“Friendly staff, great cinema”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

Since moving to leicester we have visited this cinema on several occasions. We have always been treated very well by the staff who are polite and helpful. As with all cinemas the drinks and snacks are massively overpriced.
The seats in this cinema are great! Plenty of space and they adjust with how you sit which makes the trip comfortable and enjoyable unlike a lot of other cinemas. View of the screen is great from every seat as the staggered seating ensures no heads in the way of the screen.
There is also cheap(during the evening) convenient parking next door which means you dont have to worry about not having anywhere to park either. In my opinion it is great all round.

“Great night, great Barman!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

I don't normally review on the internet but I received such a good service in the Directors lounge in the Showcase I thought it or rather the Barman was worth a mention. My partner and I had tickets to see the new Captain America film, as it was our anniversary we decided to treat ourselves and I'm glad we did. Yes the surroundings in the bar are opulent to say the least but it was the bar staff, Joe " The Master" who really made our night special. The cocktail- a mudslide he made me was delicious and his knowledge of movies was incredible. My partner is a bit of a film buff so enjoyed chatting to someone who actually knows what they are talking about. Overall it's was the customer service provided that made our night so memorable- will definitely splash out a little bit more again- it was worth it!!

“Great service - attentive manager”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

A mistake through the website meant that we had to switch from the Directors Lounge to Scree 1. The manager from the Lounge was superb and made a potentially difficult situation easy for us all.

I have to say I hate the Showcase website. It is not easy to follow and it should clearer if there are going to be two different films in the Directors Lounge on one night.

“Room with a View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

Our first experience at this cinema and a good experience too. Good interior design on two levels with tickets from the desk on the ground floor before moving up the escalator to the food court area. Queuing for the six main cinemas is a little restrictive and there are no clearly defined queuing area for each cinema. Bear in mind the seat are on a first come, first served basis. Drink and food are, as with every cinema, expensive.
Once inside the cinema the seats are comfortable and adjust to suit your requirements. Sound, thankfully, not so loud you end up with a hearing impairment. Lighting on entering and exiting is not particularly good on the staircase so care needs to be taken.
Good, unrestricted view from all seats so you can enjoy your entertainment.
