“Majorily overpriced!!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

I enjoy going to the cinema but havent been in a while so thought wed treat ourselves. Long queue to purchase tickets &only 1woman serving even though we could see other staff members just hanging around inside chatting about a nightout they had. Cost just under £10 for a seat and werent the most comfortable. With sna ks&drinks we spent a fortune plus huge queue and only minimal staff on. Can imagine if we went as a family how much i would of paid. Only positive i could find was film was amazing,but everythin else was rather shockin.

“Disappointing.”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We really love going to the cinema as a family, if this was our local cinema I would never go and wait for bluray release. Poor service from start to finish, queued for 30mins for tickets, two men serving who were ridiculously slow and having lengthy discussions with each customer. No apology offered for delay. Then onto refreshments...husband queued for 15mins ended up missing first 10mins of film, again plenty of staff just not serving quick enough. Not whatyou expect from Odeon especially when paying premium price for watching feature in 3d!!!!

“Dirty overpriced”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Don't go to this venue, its dirty and vastly overpriced, I paid £3.75 for a hotdog, which was a roll and sausage, it must have cost all of 15p to produce, what a rip off, go to Vue instead, its just has expensive but at least its clean

“The Heart of Parc Tawe centre”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

This is a nice odeon, not much different to what you will find in most other cities to be honest. It shows a nice variety of films and if you have no preference to Vue or Odeon you can find that together they cover a wide spectrum of recent and independant releases. The Odeon does have a number of special screenings occasionally so check them out. The price for an adult ticket for Swansea I think is still pricy but then I would rather pay the price here then the ripoff prices in Oxford and London so don't look a gift horse in the mouth is the motto here i guess! lol
