It's fairly standard as cinemas go. Seats are comfy enough. It's expensive. Preferred it when there was a dedicated tickets counter with the food/drink separate, it's all just one now, but this seems ... read more »
Not our first visit here. We booked "VIP" seats to watch Bridget Jones Baby. Great place and very comfortable. The refreshments are very expensive. Best to take your own water and pop corn.
I'm not a fan of cinemas, we only visit the Autistic friendly events monthly which supposed to suit kids with special needs. Well, the staff is very helpful but the management don't really listen to requests from the parents. Just one example from the many: kids with autism have very sensitive hearing. The movie shouldn't be loud to suit them, but we have to ask the staff to lower the sound every time we are there.
Cinema is fine, it's the films that suck. Virtually no World cinema movies, ever. Vue provides conveyor belt format movies, mostly from Hollywood. Occasionally there will be a movie worth the visit but, for me, this is a rare event. I do miss the old Lonsdale cinema which was closed down a few years back. Although it was a smaller cinema there was a rich selection of movies for all tastes. Independent picture houses are scarce here in the North West, I visit Keswick Alhambra more than Vue. Unfortunately, Vue will continue to churn out the production line of dross from the Hollywood stable regardless ( the two are, I suspect, inseparable). Perhaps Vue will take note,,,,, but I am not holding my breath. Rob Edwards
Ridiculous queuing here and don't bother paying online if u want to be quicker as u still need to enter the massive queue if u need a drink or food. Manager said we should have arrived earlier if we wanted food as well, cheeky tw#t, that's why u pay online isn't it?! Food is well overpriced as is the whole place. Would have thought you would get a break from robbery being a small city but no, Vue have brought the same prices up north! Ridiculous.
Great screens, great sound, great seating. This should be all you'd need, however, my experiences are almost always spoiled by the bad manners of other people. There should be more done before the picture to remind people to be quiet.
35 minutes of rubbish! I loath spending money (and I don't find it cheap) to be bombarded with adverts - It's insulting and my time is precious. The actual start time of the film isn't listed and when I've asked they've always given an estimate that's 10 minutes earlier than the end of the ads. It winds me up so much I've only been a couple of times. Another factor of course is spoilers - some people like trailers but I detest having plots and key moments spoilt - it usually means I feel there's no point in seeing that film now.
