Advantages: Good sound system, Good car park
Disadvantages: Too Expensive
The UCI cinema is located in a leisure complex in the excellent Cardiff Bay area. The complex is made up of a few bars, restaurants and a bowling alley. The immediate area of Cardiff Bay is top notch and getting better every week.
However, the UCI cenima itself is not worth the price. Every time I go there the price seems to have gone up. It is currently £5.65 per ticket. If there's two of you, it would almost be cheaper to go and buy a DVD and keep the film forever. By the time you stock up on ice-cream, popcorn, sweets, nachos, coke (whatever you prefer)you're looking at quite an expensive night out. (Let's hope the film is worth it).
This last point brings us onto the next complaint. The concession staff have to be the slowest, most poorly trained sales staff I have ever come across. The stuff is overpriced and you have to wait an age to get served. If you want to eat or drink during the film, make sure you get there early enough to stand in a queue for 20 minutes.
Having said that, the seats are large and confortable, the screens are excellent and so is the sound system. However, with the Showcase at Nantgarw and the Odeon at McCarther Glen both within 20 minutes drive and both a lot cheaper and just as good. It's not worth the price.
