Can I take a baby to the cinema?
We strongly discourage babies in arms to the cinema (except our
special baby screenings) as the loudness of most films is not a
good environment for them. We will allow for U and PG films
starting before 7pm.
Do you participate in Orange Wednesday?
Yes we do. Please follow this link to their website
for more details.
What do the certificates mean?
It is impossible to predict what might upset any particular
child. But a 'U' film should be suitable for audiences aged four
years and over. 'U' films should be set within a positive moral
framework and should offer reassuring counterbalances to any
violence, threat or horror.
Unaccompanied children of any age may watch. A 'PG' film should
not disturb a child aged around eight or older. However, parents
are advised to consider whether the content may upset younger or
more sensitive children.
No-one younger than 12 may see a '12A' film in a cinema unless
accompanied by an adult. Responsibility for allowing under-12s to
view lies with the accompanying or supervising adult.
No-one younger than 15 may see a '15' film in a cinema.
No-one younger than 18 may see an '18' film in a cinema.
Do you have wheelchair spaces?
We have wheelchair capability in all screens. Although if you

Can my children attend without a parent or guardian?
For U and PG certificate films only before 7pm. After this time
we require all children to be accompanied.
How long are ads and trailers before a film?
It depends on the film. As a rule we tend to have ads and
trailers running between 15 and 20 minutes prior to film start.
Previews often have no advertisements so we strongly suggest you
are in your seats prior to the advertised programme start time so
you do not miss anything.
When do you advertise film times on your website?
Normally we will download our film schedule on the Tuesday
preceeding the Friday of release. On big films we may do this
earlier as demand will be higher.
How can we use Gift Can Vouchers?
If you have received one of our gift cans with vouchers inside,
you can redeem them at any till within the building.
Drink vouchers are valid for any fountain soft drink, or a hot
drink of your choice.
Food vouchers can be used for popcorn, nachos or hot dogs. The
size is detailed on the ticket. If you want to buy a bigger size
you can pay the difference and upgrade.
For tickets for films please exchange the voucher for a film of
your choice. No restrictions on day, time or type of ticket. These
vouchers are only valid for films. They are not valid for private
screenings or alternative content such as opera or ballet live
broadcasts. Unfortunately you must redeem vouchers in person and
therefore they cannot be used to book online.
What are your ticket prices?
If you go to our 'about us' section on this website all prices
Why can't I choose my seat?
You can select the seat you'd like for nearly every show.
However we do not allocate seats for the Kids Club because it is
not necessary. Nor do we allocate seats on Orange Wednesday this is
because most customers buy their tickets at the till - you
can't redeem an Orange code online. Seat selection takes extra time
and leads to longer frustrating queues on this our busiest day.
