Fab art deco feel, friendly staff, reasonable price, comfy seats - plus coffee and wine. What more do you need from a cinema?! Always the preferred venue to watch any film but tickets often sell out fast due to its popularity.

Great film great venue. Easy access. Friendly staff. Good prices. Site is nice and clean and smells good. Much bigger than I anticipated for a small town cinema. I had a better experience here than at odeon.

Plaza or Odeon - no contest Plaza wins hands down. Some years ago building changed from bingo / cinema with two screens to cinema with 5 screens. Brilliant transformation. All cinemas have large comfy seats with plenty of legroom. People can walk past you while...More

Slap in the centre of Dorchester, this Art Deco building is definitely worth visiting. It has a good range of films and extremely well priced. (Make sure you buy your snacks here to help keep the prices down). Comfortable seats and friendly staff. First rate.

Sorry, I’m not there right now but not too expensive from memory. Plus M&S is across the road and the cinema doesn’t mind you bringing your own drinks etc
