Wanted to try something different and show the kids an old type cinema. Unfortunately I’d forgotten how bad they are. Poor sound, picture and uncomfortable seats. Damp smell and quite expensive sweets. Back to the plaza in Workington for us.

Gaiety Cinema is relatively small in comparison with the large multI screen options. The smaller friendly environment puts you right in the movie coupled with the bar and refreshments area it's a real winner. It can be booked on line for ease.

Tried this cinema for the first time yesterday. It was great, very intimate friendly atmosphere. Drinks & snacks way cheaper than the major chains. Will definitely be using it from now on.
