For a Vue cinema, this one ticks all the boxes. The screens are the right size, and they show the right films. There's the bonus of all the food places outside too if hotdogs and popcorn aren't your thing! Can get a little full at times though.
The past few times I have been to this cinema, I have been very disappointed. The auditorium was absolutely freezing, even though I had a jumper and coat on I was still shivering. The screens have always been dirty covered in marks, so this can be very annoying when watching the film as they are quite noticeable. The toilets were filthy, had no toilet rolls and even missing ceiling tiles. The prices for popcorn and drinks are very expensive and even the popcorn didn't taste very nice. The only good things I can say about it is that there is plenty of room to park, and the kids club on a weekend morning is very cheap. In my honest opinion its much better to go to the odeon at the docks.
I was quite disappointed with this cinema. Being a Vue I was expecting a reasonably good experience, however it didn't really come up to scratch. The auditorium seating was the older non-tiered style, and the screen wasn't particularly large. I think the seats and decor had perhaps seen better days - things that don't matter too much when the lights go down - but they all add to the experience.
Sound and picture quality were fine, but the toilets were pretty horrible. Not really worth the money in my opinion - there are much better cinemas for the same price elsewhere.
I'm suprised to see that reviewers don't like this cinema. In recent years the cinema has been updated and now is a very nice, comfortable place to go and my choice of cinema. Unlike the Vue cinema in Bolton this one does not have raked seating, however the seating is very comfortable aand usually you can see clearly, there is only a problem if a tall person sits in front of you! The staff in my experience are very helpful and pleasant, the cinema is clean and the price is not too expensive.
