Member Name: jdrockstar
Advantages: No booking fees, Clean, tidy, comfortable seats, cheap cinema tickets and very quiet.
Disadvantages: Expensive food and drink
I regularly visit the cinema and the cinema i am reviewing is the Cine world Cinema at West India Quay in London.
I have been to many cinemas in London from the Odeon at Leicester Square to Vue at Islington. I haven't been very impressed by these cinemas due to the price and at how busy they are. Fed up with these cinemas i decided to try out Cineworld.
West India Quay Cineworld
Location: Herstmere Road, West India Quay, London E14 4AL
Nearest tube station: West India Quay
The Cinema is located in a big modern skyscraper building and has typical decor of any Cineworld Cinema. The cinema has ten screens across two floors. . The views from the cinema are beautiful and through the glass you can see Canary Wharf. The surrounding area is great and lively restaurants and pubs can be found within a 2 minute walk from the cinema.
The prices are very reasonable for watching a film in London. Most films are priced at around the 6-8 pound range and theirs discounts for families and students. I book my tickets on the internet and you receive an extra 10% discount and pay no booking fees, unlike Odeon and Vue which charge booking fees. Ordering tickets is extremely easy, they send you a booking reference which you take to the cinema to collect your tickets.
The seats in the cinema are very comfortable and there is plenty of leg room. The screens are big and the sound quality is very good. The cinema is very clean and tidy and the staff are very friendly and polite. For a London cinema it is very quiet it must be said. The last time i visited was to watch About Time on a Wednesday and there was only around 20 people watching the film which was very pleasant.
The only downside i'd say is that food and drink is very expensive likewise of any cinema. The food and drink is very overpriced. Cineworld also state that hot food cannot be taken into the cinema e.g. McDonald's and i have read other reviews stating that they are fussy with people taking in their own shop bought sweets and drinks. I have had no problem however but i think it cares to be discreet.
Cine world also offer an unlimited cinema card which is worth considering for any film fanatic. The card costs £15.90 a month. The card entitles unlimited access to watch films at CineWorld cinema and 10 % discount on food and drink in the cinema. This is very generous and i know a lot of my friends have bought this card.
I have been very impressed with Cine World cinemas and if you live in London i would advise you to go to the West India Quay CineWorld.
Summary: Great value for any cinema fan, best cinema i have been to in London.
