Reviewed January 3, 2014

There was always two choices for the cinema round here before this was built, cineworld in Runcorn or cineworld in St. Helens. Reel is a bit different compared to these two. Its only a small cinema and doesnt quite have that top level professional feel that cineworld has, you get the feeling that you could throw a competing cinema experience together in an empty warehouse over the weekend. The choice of films is somewhat limited due to its small size, but its certainly a great addition to widnes.
I know that a trip to the cinema is a pricey affair these days, and reel is no different, but its cheaper than cineworld. Staff are very friendly, the cinema is kept very clean and the snacks are ok, so I cant fault it there. If you live in widnes then theres no reason to travel further afield to watch the latest films, because reel does the job well enough
