Visited the cinema today (21/11/18) mega impressed with the upgrade. Reclining leather seats were amazing. So much more space too. Only half the cinema is renovated at the moment but the rest is underway.

This place is like a 70's time capsule, everything is dated. The abundant staff were fairly friendly and there is a wow factor about the brutalist architecture. Two adults and a child cost nearly £25 for film tickets (our local Vue would have been £15)....More
