    I keep going into the Picturehouse to watch the films advertised on the walls but they're rarely on for some reason.

    And when they are on there's always loads of people drinking beer as if it's a pub.

    I don't see why anyone would expect a cinema situated in an area of eateries and decent pubs not far away to try to compete with them.

    Perhaps there should be an establishment where you can drink what you want, eat what you want and watch what you want. Oh yeh that's it - home.

    There are plenty of options to go eat & drink prior to going to the cinema....thats if you so wish or prefer to stay at home? thats entirely up to you.

    Cinemas are primarily for watching films. The food and drink options are just convenience food. If you want better quality food, go to a restaurant.

    Don't think I've ever eaten cinema food. We even take our own sweets as cinema ones are so blooming expensive.

    Oddly enough I wouldn't go to a restaurant expecting a great cinematic experience either.

    Went to see Bo Rhap last night, good news being concessions for the over 60s. So everyone on here should be able to take advantage of that......

    Triumph Herald - they used to disintegrate on impact but had really sensible engine access and a useful "emergency fuel lever". Still remember my Dads' - PFA 190
