    Not much to say except from that this is a great wee cinema! It's pretty much the only one I'll use, unless there's a film I want to see and the showings don't suit, in which case I'll go to the showcase.

    I think the cinema has 12 screens in total, so it's always got something on for everyone, and is normally relatively busy. Really friendly staff, and there's VIP seats in each screen, but it's really not worth paying extra for them because they're really not that comfy. They're bigger and more spacious than the normal seats, but hard leather so quite uncomfy.

    As Fiona's review said, it's hideously overpriced for food and tickets, but that's the exact same with all cinemas, what can you expect?

    A good cinema with plenty of screens and regular showings of new movies, and occasionally, classic films as well.

    Easy to get to by train, direct from Glasgow Central or express bus, from Buchanan Bus Station. It's just off the M8.

    The ticket prices aren't too friendly, especially at the weekend, but it's a decent enough cinema.

    They do 3d movies and decent food, which is overpriced as usual.

    Last time I was there some guy came in with a crazy video camera that flashed green to look around in the dark to see if anyone was recording the movie. It looked like a speedcamera and it was so creepy it completely took me out of the experience of watching the film, it was surreal.

    I was not impressed.

    This cinema is one of the first I know of to introduce 'teen' prices;that is, a ticket price specifically for 13-18 year olds of 4.85, rather than pay the whopping 6.10 adult price. At peak times, this adult price goes up to 6.75, which I almost wouldn't pay, it's that expensive! Thankfully I have my trusty student card for now.

    This cinema has nine screens,all big and spacious, and caters for the new 3D phenomena that is around at the moment. You can also hire special bigger seats for a pound extra, which are nothing to rave about. Just bigger.

    I do have a gripe with the closing times though. It seems to close rather early during the week, with a lot of last showings at 8 or 9pm.

    Decent cinema, not as expensive as Showcase, and the best nachos of any cinema I've been to!

    First to Review

    I visited this cinema during a weekday and it was very quiet and lots of parking spaces in the car park out front.

    After a member of staff eventually appeared behind the counter that usually sells the sugar and salt based snacks I bought two tickets at a not very off-peak £5.65 each. Only to receive a receipt paper-receipt stylee ticket, tut tut tut, I'm sorry but when I go to the cinema I want a proper card ticket (ideally with a perforation down the middle) for the multiplex or an old-school wee pinky orange ticket from the art-house.

    I then asked for a coffee, they had no milk, the place is about 20 yards from a supermarket.

    Once seated I found the fixed, not fold down, seats quite uncomfortable and with poor slouch factor.

    Good cinema. Big comfy seats, but if you want to, you can pay a pound extra for the V.I.P. seats. The best seats, even the staff agree, are the ones directly behind the V.I.P. seats as you can stretch your legs out and rest them on the armrests in front.

    They have good discounts depending on what day of the week you go and whether you go before five o'clock in the evening. ( something that you just don't get at The Odeon.)

    The staff are very cheerful and professional. They sell you all the usual stuff, Hot Dogs, popcorn, Ice Cream and even bottles of beer and cider etc. They don't seem to mind you bringing in your own snacks and drinks but NOT your own alcohol.

    We watched Thor in 3D and were perfectly happy with an all round pleasant visit. I come down here from East Kilbride because it is just so much better than the Odeon in East Kilbride.

    Hamilton waited for alot of years to be equipped with a decent cineam, and this is finally it!
    Compare to the old one, this place is absolute luxury and has most of the trappings of mulitplexes elsewhere - albeit on a slightly smaller scale.
    There's usually a good selection of films playing, staff are friendly and helpful and there's a good selection of snacks and treats on sale in the foyer (mind you - they're as overpriced here as at every other cinema in the land!).
    The seats are realtively comfortable, and spaced out however, if you want to be picky, in comparison with larger multiplexes this cinema isn't as luxuriously kitted out and due to it's smaller size, struggles to cope during busy periods.

    Recently went to see a film on an Orange Wednesday so we got two in for the price of one. I found the whole experience to be wonderful from the moment we set foot inside to the minute we got out. Though it doesn't look much at the entrance the lift makes it really accessible for disabled people, and there is the option to sit and enjoy a drink and snack at the bar. Seats are really comfortable and the space in between them is really good. Staff are really friendly and helpful though at times it can be busy and queues can be long. Best advice is to buy tickets earlier on the Wednesday that the film you are going to see.

    This Cinema is really modern. If your lucky enough to go and see a movie that is in screen 1 it makes the experience a hole lot more wonderful. Screen 1 is the biggest cinema screen in Scotland. The seating is really comfortable and you always get a great viewing of the screen no matter where you sit. You always look level onto the cinema sceen unlike others where you get a sore neck looking up at the screen. The only downfall is that it is always really busy and the parking can sometimes be difficult. The cinema also sells a lot of refreshments from your traditional popcorn to ice cream and alcohol. This is my favourite cinema by far.

    This is located to the bottom of Hamilton with parking outside which is free. The cinema is good modern and the toilets are clean. The cinema runs all the new films and this can make it very busy i remember nearly missing a film until they opened another desk just for our film. The usual are available from popcorn to ice cream to the big bags of maltesers etc. a really good cinema the one i use all the time.

    cinemas which serve the local community well. well priced ,one of the cheapest and well presented . snacks can be expensive but you can always take your own in, it has a bar , food counter and ice cream bar ,they have a variety of films showing at 1 time and it always seems to be busy on weekends and at new released films. they also run a kids am showing at weekends which is really cheap but only shos older films , but still before they are released on dvd, (well most of them). popular at summer and over the festive period and busy at the block buster releases i.e pirates of the carribean , oo7, anf the type. good for a first date as you need to speak much and can hold hands up the back . word of warning though at pg rated films you alwaysget the group of young teens wasting it for everyone else . dont put up with report them and have them removed from showing , whyt should you waste your money on watching something you cant get to enjoy.
