Vue Cinema (Plymouth)
Advantages: Good Service
Disadvantages: Rip off
I love watching movies so I go to the cinema on a regular basis. Vue cinema in Plymouth is situated within the Barbican Leisure complex.
Vue cinema in Plymouth is very expensive, the tickets are very expensive and the food and snacks are also very over-priced! they sell a range of snacks and food for people to share or just to eat by your self. They sell hotdogs, nachos, popcorn, ice cream and a variety of different chocolate and sweets. The sweets are around £3 a bag and the popcorn is around £5. They do sell 'combos' of different foods and snacks which is ok because you save a little money. Vue cinema sell a range of soft drinks and water. I have to say that the price of water is an absolute rip off; £2.55 for a bottle of water, I felt robbed after I bought that. Upstairs in the cinema there is a 'Ben & Jerry's' stand where they sell their delicious ice - cream.
They have recently put VIP seats in the cinema screens. The VIP seats are not much better than the normal seats , they are hard and black leather and they have arm rests that do not move. When I tried out the VIP seats I wish that I hadn't because I had a numb bum at the end of the film, it was also a pain because I couldn't put the armrest up and cuddle into my partner. I paid extra money to sit in these seats and we kept getting pestered to show our ticket to make sure we wern't in the wrong seats! The staff were very polite but it was just annoying having to keep getting the ticket out.
From my experience at Vue cinema, the staff have all been very friendly and helpful. I will go there again but I will make sure that I eat before I go or save money before I go so I can afford to buy food and drink there!
Prices of tickets at the moment are:
Adult - £7.80
Teen - £6.25
Student - £6.65
Senior - £5.90
Child - £5.90
The reason I have written (prices at the moment) is because I recently heard from a member of staff that they are going to put the prices up again sometime this year!
Summary: Good place to watch the latest films
