Superb old style cinema but upgraded with comfotable seats and great view. Such value at £2.50 each, couldn't believe it especially when considering the superb experience. Faultless.

This is such a great place to go. The cinema prices are so cheap which makes it more enjoyable to go. Admittedly the food prices are as high as regular cinema but still.

This wonderful cinema has the latest films and charges really sensible prices meaning that for a family it's not a break the bank experience

The plaza is our favourite cinema, we actually live in a different town which has its own modern cinema but we choose to drive for half an hour to the Plaza, we spend many winter afternoons/evenings watching all the new films here as they come...More

A lovely old art deco cinema in the heart of the town with smartly dressed staff who were friendly and helpful. Amazing to be able to go to the cinema for a current blockbuster and pay only £2.50 per adult. Even the popcorn and sodas...More
