Vue has upgraded the seats at Basingstoke. These are superb and are very comfortable. It's a pity that the picture quality left a lot to be desired. Supposedly 4K projection but, the picture was so dark it would not have mattered what resolution it was....More

If you are planning to visit a cinema in the Basingstoke area "Vue" is your best choice. The main reason I recommend this cinema is because of the NEW SEATS. They are reclining, have a slide across table and are larger and more spaced out...More

Went to see Black Panther on Sat 17/2/18. Very disappointed with the projection and therefore overall experience of the film. Image on the screen was too dark. This was made worse by the fact that a lot of the scenes are set in dark/dim lit...More

Watched a film (obviously!) in reclining seats with a slide across table. It was so comfy with a glass of wine whilst reclining. Made the nights out to the pics so enjoyable
