Newest Review: ... in price, but are around seven pounds, and the gallery (where you can eat unlimited pop corn and get free soft drinks) is now eighteen pounds. These prices, especially the latter, have increased sharply over the last few years. It may be that the Odeon chain is trying to get rid of the gallery set-up, now just in a few of their cinemas, as the price is very expensive, especially for a family. ... more

The seating in this cinema was well set out and comfortable but it was very hot and stuffy, and the food was not good and incredibly expensive!

This review is actually for the Odeon cinema in Norwich, as Odeon took over the UCI chain and this cinema a couple of years ago.

[Update]I had to change this opinion because the positions are now reversed! I prefer Ster to UCI, but mainly for reasons of convenience than anything to do with the service. The following opinion has been modified throughout. [End update] The UCI in Norwich was the cinema of choice for me and my friends for some time, mainly because Ster Century, in the middle of town, wasn't nearly as good service-wise when it opened. However, the problems have been ironed out for the most part, and because Ster is closer, we tend to go there now. To be fair, UCI was the first real multiplex in the city, and got it right from the start, but now there is little of ... Read the complete review
