Vue Cinema Reading
Advantages: comfy chairs, plenty of choice, plenty of seating to wait for films to start
Disadvantages: prices - pretty standard with any cinema!
I was quite impressed with this cinema the first time I went. As you walk up to it the entrance is surrounded by little screens which show you still adverts of current and upcoming films which is nice to give you an idea of whats being shown before you even walk in.
When you go in there is a reasonably big ticket dispensory, probably about six tills. There are also a few self service tills if you're paying by card or have prebooked your tickets.
You then head on upstairs to the food section, which also doubles as a ticket sales area sometimes when the cinema is quiet. Again there are quite a few tills and a specific Ben and Jerrys ice cream area, as well as a section with a few games machines. In the middle there is a small seating area and around the edge are some more seats for people waiting for their films. There are lots of screens showing a variety of adverts, again for current and upcoming films.
When you go into the screens, some are quite big and some are quite small, however they are all spacious and the seats are very padded and comfortable, something I think is standard throughout VUE. In the biggest rooms, the seats go up quite steeply rather than the standard shallow incline, which means that even if someone tall sits in front of you, its still very clear to see the screen.
Overall I have been very impressed with this cinema everytime I've been, its generally always clean and well staffed with polite staff members. The prices of food are extortionate, but this is the same with every cinema I've ever been to so I won't hold it against this particular venue.
Summary: As good a cinema to go to as any..
