The place is awesome :) but they stop selling some of the best candy and it's far too much just to get food and get tickets for the movie and what's the point of VIP seats ?
Seating, technical specifications of the cinema's and the choice are all fantastic - the ticket prices, including the baffling "booking fee" for on-line purchases , are much too high.
And don't get me started on the food prices - so many people bypass the concession stand and go right into the cinema, I'm sure if the prices reflected a normal value they would be so much busier.
Great cinema in the Barbican Leisure Park of Plymouth. Can be expensive but there are plenty of ways to get around this with offers in newspapers and also 'Orange Wednesdays' where if you have an orange network phone you can text a number and get tickets b.o.g.o.f. The seats are really comfy and there is plenty of leg room for me at 6ft1. Food is really expensive and not particularly nice but you've no obligation to buy it unless you want it so its up to you.
Lots of screens and showings.
It's getting more expensive every year (currently £6.80 a ticket) but it has nice seats, big screens and great sound. You can buy tickets yourself at the computer machines, and there's always orange wednesdays 2 for 1 offers.
What I cannot get my head around is the crazy price of popcorn and drinks. The pik n mix upstairs is even worst! I've grown up in a family where you were just happy to get out of the house, so I'm happy to miss the sweets, but if you're going for a family of 4 with a drink, popcorn, and sweets, don't expect much change from £50.
Not sure if any of the staff have left school yet lol - miserable typical teenagers running a rather large cinema.
I agree with itsnothing's comment about it being very pricey - popcorn and a drink for just under a tenner!!!!
Females toilets always very clean
Good displays for up and coming releases also
And Pizza Hut is just across the car park - everybodies happy!!!
I agree with the previous comment in regards to the cinema at warner village in plymouth. You pay alot of money to go to the cinema now, and with the increase in price you expect changes ad improvements to happen - but they have yet to transpire here. I think at first when the vue came to plymouth everyone flocked there as it seemed big, exciting sounds etc, but now everyone hasn't the money to go there and it is often dirty and the staff are unfriendly. Needs a new one i think in plymouth
Great cinema in the Barbican area of Plymouth. Usually plenty of parking unless there is a very popular film showing. Can be more expensive than smaller cinemas especially the food. We always take our own but I think this is severely frowned upon! Orange 2for1 Wednesdays with bring-your-own sweeties make for a bargain night out! The theatres are warm and comfortable and the sound quality is excellent. Quick to get the new films and they have a Saturday morning showing especially for children. If you do want to splash out and buy food at the cinema - the ice creams are great or how about a cappucino and some sweeties from the pick-your-own!
Vue cinema seem to be putting up prices but not putting anything into this tired cinema complex. The floors/carpets are sticky and worn out and there are never any staff a the front entrance. The cinema rooms are dirty with popcorn and sweets everywhere. The surround sound is not as good as many other cinemas i have visited! Plymouth needs a quality cinema complex and this is not one of them!
This cinema is great - big comfy seats, spacious, clean and tidy. The whole area is always very clean and the staff are friendly and helpful.
However the prices of tickets are slowly creeping up. It is now £6.80 for a ticket, but they also do student prices and are included in the orange 2 for 1 offers - which is the only time we will go.
The cost of the food is what i cannot get over!! By the time you have bought some popcorn and a drink expect to have spent at least £8 (and thats not including your tickets!!!).
Location is convienient and parking there is easy, there are also restaurants either side if you want to make a night of it like we usually do.
Overall, can proce to be an expensive night out but is nice as a treat!!
Vue cinema in plymouth is one of my favourite theatres that i love going to. It has a big spacious theatre with comfortable chairs and a big screen where we enjoy films with popcorn in hand. The inside of theatre is spacious and very clean. Although the prices of tickets have now started creeping up and it is the major problem that upsets me but me and my hubby often go and see the movies when there are some offers around. We also make use of student discount which is really a good method of reducing the ticket prices and helps lowering of ticket prices.
This cinema is like many people have already mentioned, a bit pricey. However, the screens are of a good size and the seats are fairly comfortable and the sound is amazing. The food is expensive so it is worth taking your own food, the staff have never had a problem when i have done this. The cinema also has live feeds to big concerts which is a different to offerings from other cinemas with recent feeds including Take That and Genesis.
This is a very big cinema with lots of films showing all the time. There are lots of showings of new films so going early in the day can mean lots of spare seats. The screens are big and the seats are comfy and the place is clean. Food an drink can be expensive so it is worth taking your own in as long as it is hidden in your bag! It gets very busy on a Wednesday (Orange 2 for 1) and with nightclubs next door can get rowdy in the evenings. For a daytime, catching a film and then going to Pizza Hut for lunch is a lovely day out.
I do like this cinema, but the prices just keep on going up. The last film I saw there the place was empty and the staff wern't to friendly. Sometimes, depending on the time of day, they can be quite helpful. You do have to pay alot for food and snacks, let alone the ticket price, but the actual screens are huge and the seats are mega comfy. Although it does get quite cold in their sometimes, the cinema experience is a good one. I wouldn't go to any other cinema, but i do recommend going on a wednesday for orange wednesdays. It is always clean and tidy and the toilets are nice, with big mirrors and good hand dryers. Although expensive the quality of the food is always good.
This is a very good cinema, 15 screens and all very clean, confortable and business like. The only problem I can see is that the car park gets very busy at peak times, nearly always full, so get there in plenty of time. Also the restaurants in the area all very busy indeed, so leave yourself loads of time, or eat elsewhere, probably cheaper and better.
Cinema seats really comfortable, really good picture, loads of leg room, great picture and sound and loads of film choice. The food and drink prices are extortionate, so take what you want to eat and drink with you I would suggest.
Save yourself needing a second mortgage this way.
The prices has gone up here like everyone says and the place is getting more dirty as time goes on, so it is really not worth it. The food on offer is bad and quite often a coke has no fizz in it what so ever and goes totally flat before the end of the adverts. All the staff seem really cold and mechanical, when this place opened it was a great place to go but I wouldnt bother now.
The Vue is a very very large cinema with a lot of films showing. The seats are luxorious and have built in cup holders. The food is excellent as is the drink and there is a small alcove where you can play arcade games where you wait. It has easy free parking and good clean toilets. The only problem is that its very impersonal. When you enter you are greeted usually by a line and then at the front a member of staff behind glass and with a microphone. I dont like this. This is usually seen at late night petrol stations and i think that there safe from being robbed. Still the screens are great and are superior to other local cinemas.
The previous reviewers have it spot on with this place! The prices are really expensive, especially the food and drink and staff just don't seem to care about anything. However, the screens are huge, the sound is always good and there is usually plenty of room. Make sure you take a jacket though as the cinema is quite chilly! The best time to go is on a Wednesday when Orange mobile customers can get two tickets for the price of one. If this is your plan though, make sure you get there in plenty of time as the queues are often very long and there is only one queue for all films.
Tends to be clean, very comfy but far to expensive, if your going to go make sure you have plenty of money because you will be robbed of every penny!
too expensive to watch anything!!
Expensive but clean and comfortable. Always lots showing. Cheaper if you go before 5 and sometimes you get a money off coupon for next time which helps
