Went to see new Ghostbusters movie. The cinema was very shabby - badly in need of a re-fit! Wouldn't go there again.

Thanks for your post. This is all really disappointing, although our investigations have not brought up any errors. Nobody can recall any seating problems that day and it doesn't show up on our CCTV footage. Also, with our ticket prices being just £6.50 and £4.50 without any discounts, plus our popcorn and drink combos starting at just £2.50, I really... More

Merlin cinemas are great! Three screens. I am lucky to have a cinema in my home town! The drink and food are nice, the staff are friendly. They also have a great deal on their movie magic cards, very cheap and great discounts on films! They had to increase the prices though, as big companies like Disney wouldn't let them... More

We were welcomed by a very pleasant young lady who sold the tickets and the coffee also showed us to our seats guess she would have sold us a drink from the bar if we had wanted one, we think there was someone else working the projector though. Screen 7 had approximately 50 seats, only about 12 people in that... More

There are three screens, of which screen 7 (which is really their small third screen) is lovely, leather style seats with tables, as well as some sofa's is very nice. The other screens are... More

Visited here with five and seven year old children. The cinema was very small but very cosy and warm. The seating was lovely and comfortable, like individual sofas. One major issue is that the toilets are completely the other side of the cinema. You have to go down one set of stairs, towards the entrance and up another flight of... More

Went to watch the latest Pixels movie with my youngest son due to poor weather. The staff were very helpful and it had an old fashioned feel about the place. Prices were reasonable too. The screen we were in had the old fashioned curtains which made my son laugh and the style and lay out was also very retro. The... More
