  • We live in York and it’s the only cinema we go to, because it’s close, we like art films and we are members. But I am fed up with the awful loos. They smell of rancid fat from the kitchen and the flus...  more »

  • I am a member of the fan club, quite literally! Love this place. They show a really good range of films and if you become a member, tickets are cheaper. Membership also gets you a discount from the good restaurant and bar on the ground floor. In the restaurant/bar, a tasty menu is on offer, however they also keep a good range of wines and beers, and serve it at a price that isn't excessive. The restaurant/bar is a great place to hang out in the summer as there is a decked balcony that overlooks the river. The building as a whole is really rather special, though, and has been designed to allow the maximise the amount of natural light inside. It's the best cinema in York, still!
  • A lovely cinema in the centre of York with a Riverside bar. Often shows live performances of theater/ballet, and hosts art from local artists. There is a club area downstairs and a great staff. City Screen also shows a lot of indie films and has film seasons dedicated to a director/theme
  • Fantastic Cinema, nice food too. Great for a beer beforehand too. The outside balcony is great on a sunny day. Some good competition from Everyman, but a lot less expensive.
  • The cinema is great, the food is great, the service is not so good. We went on a Saturday and there was a 15 minute gap between when breakfast and lunch can be ordered - after being served so slowly we went over the breakfast allotted time, we then had to sit and wait until they would even let us place orders for lunch - which then took ages as (and I quote) "we just got loads of orders all at once". Not exactly surprising given all the people waiting an extra 15 minutes to order! Next visit their highly advertised mulled cider, at 6pm on a cold day, was "just heating up, it'll be 5 minutes" for half an hour. Need to employ some better staff and/or give them better training.
  • Nice cinema, based right on the river. It's at the pricier end as cinema go, however its a much nicer experience than the large multi screen cinemas
