    Will be attending the pre-opening tonight. From what I've heard already it is pretty impressive inside

    "Beer" on tap (Bud light & Stella) and a range of food including lattice fries, chicken stripes, nachos etc.....

    If you want to drink that chewy crap called real ale, you ain't going to be going to a cinema.

    You were there last night then yeah?

    It's cinema snack food, fries, nacho's chicken strips, hot dogs etc...what did you expect? Heston Blumenthal to suddenly appear to make you a feast?

    Personnally I thought th options were far better than those given by Vue....though you'd proably think thats shite too?

    Were you expecting vegan options too? Though the nachos and salsa probably fit that description for you?

    There were bottled and canned beer options too, Magners cider I noticed aswell.

    Overall, quite impressed with the place. The iSense screen is superb! Staff friendly, though still getting up to speed, though I suspect by Wednesday they will be fine.

    Well worth a visit, and will be going back.

    Yeah, really not sure what you would have been expecting from a cinema? Care to enlighten?

    Yet.......I think Chiquitos is still being planned down near Nando's? Plus there is the unit next to the cnema that is yet to be decked out?


    More units to come!


    I do wonder what will happen to Revolutions when the building they are in is taken down and the planned apartments are built? Guessing we are a fair way off from that?

    Incidentally there are cinemas in existence that will serve you a full 3 course meal and drink. They're very few and far between though, mostly in the US where people will travel a lot further for these sorts of things (there's a saying I can't recall, but it goes something along the lines of "In the UK they think 2 hours is a long drive, in the US something something something")
