Any good? Been so long since we went the pictures.
It wasn't the best but it's a nice film, and for a fiver you can't go wrong. Looks like it's only on until Thursday. https://staffordcinema.co.uk/StaffordCinema.dll/Home
We went to see Knives Out at lunchtime today, a bit nippy but great screen and a great price with a friendly service - I imagine a more full screen would be warmer.
Knives Out was excellent and I'm really glad we caught it at the cinema.
Ah! I wanted to see this but heard other reviews that said it was bad, glad you thought it was good, back on my list of must sees now
we saw this film last Friday - not many people, but friendly service and great price. they need to be supported much more!
heating was ok - but a little noisy.... fine during the film itself though. Also... no horrible smell of food...
I'm going to sound so gormless now, but do we have to book? Or can you just roll up and pay at the door?
My sources say you just turn up. They also say that if it's not a film that's especially popular, bring a warm coat.
Doubt anyone will be lovely surprised but sad nevertheless.
So SBC advice is primarily for residential, and retail status, we don't need anymore retail units within the centre itself, there's plenty empty already !
"Now Stafford Borough Council has given pre-application advice saying the site could potentially be transformed into a multi-storey mixed-use conversion including ground floor retail and residential areas above."
Sam who is running the cinema has confirmed on the Facebook page that the auction won't affect the business; as they have a lease. He also made a less than subtle dig at the Express and Star reporting.
We went on Sunday and I had a chat with him, he said they're doing really well, so much so he has the Dolittle film over the weekend as a premiere before it's released next week
If they changed the seating to the same as the new Odeon and had more leg room, then I would use it. But until then I won't.
Seems a realistic expectation....
Well you'll have to continue paying to go to the Odeon. Sitting on the gangway row gives you more leg room you know.
I dread to think how much a complete refurb would cost. Instead people who can no longer afford to go to most cinemas can visit this one.
He has a love affair with the caps lock button..
No need to worry. The current management team are only lessees of the cinema. They are intending to buy the freehold. If they do that will help them to make significant improvements to the building.
Sticking your legs into the gangway isn’t a solution. Plus the seats are very uncomfortable. So yes I’m quite happy to pay to go to the Odeon and watch a film in comfort. Stafford has needed a modern cinema for decades and now it finally has one.
But, dude, trading the luxuries of the new Odeon for the deprivations of the old one is worth what?
Seats are £5 dude, as cold and as tight as they might be.
There is some easy Math to be done here.
It isn't even cold any more
