“Not the best”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Went here with wife and daughter whilst waiting for eldest visiting water park next door. First impressions not promising and as other reviewers have said it looks tired and in need of work, small gangs of bored youths hanging around outside not adding to the atmosphere. Staff friendly and helpful and the cinema once inside is fine but our screening room was verry cold so take a fleece or jumper!

“Only if you have to...”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

... go to this cinema.

As mentioned by many before it is really looking tired and in need of a serious refurb. Tickets have to be purchased at the popcorn/drinks counter or collected from just two machines they have at the entrance and the queue for these is often a ten minute wait.

Yes it is cheap compared to others but they are a far nicer experience.

“Tired venue.”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

The whole of jarman park site is tired along with the cinema. Seats okay but these days it's an expensive night out. Take a drink with you.

“not luxury, but great value for money”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

This is my local cinema, it's maybe not as fancy as the Odeon in Hatfield or the Vue in Watford by prices are currently £7.95 standard seating and the same price applies to Premium seating if you book on-line - compared to £9.00 standard/£10.10 premium at Hatfield and £9.45 standard/£11.40 premium at Watford. Apart from major blockbusters i've never known the cinema to be full, I work shifts so I usually take advantage of watching films during weekday afternoons when it's very quiet. Good choice of food and drink but quality of "freshly prepared" food has gone downhill - popcorn usually tastes stale.

Experienced this problem a few times.... lights not switched off when films starts!!
