“ Cinema „
There is something about the layout of this cinema that reminds me of a theme park ride. The colour scheme is outlined mainly with blues and yellows. The cinema is clean and the staff are very friendly (greeted me with a smile and willing to make small talk). If you don't really like interaction (to my surprise you can purchase tickets over the concessions counter) or don't feel like food there are self service ticket booths.
In terms of food the popcorn was ok however the drink was over filled with ice. The prices are shocking (water £2.30...surely this is illegal!!). For two personal to watch a film you would be looking at £30 (£9.70 per person ticket- peek and food). But in these credit crunch times it's cheaper than the theatre. My advice; take full advantage of orange Wednesday's, if you are lucky enough to gain a vue more voucher from a past visit (£1.50 off) USE IT, last minute, student card (please remember to bring it as the policy is strict no card no discount, student oyster cards are now deeded as acceptable).
The seats are conformable and clean however the seat handles have cup holders but they can't rise so cuddles forget it!!
