My main cinema that I go to. Always had a pleasant experience here, all except from the lines for popcorn and drinks, can be a long wait to get to the front. But other than that, well worth coming to enjoy a film.
This is a hit or miss cinema. The staff can either be very helpful and friendly or just surly and rude, take your pick! It is not particularly clean and some of the clientele sometimes cause a disturbance during the film. No-body from the cinema bothers to come and see what is happening during the showing, therefore they continue to be unruly and disturb the film for others. It is very expensive too, West End prices but not in the West End. Go figure!

Really comfy seats, good food and drinks. Excellent cinema experience. Not cheap but great for a special occasion.
I really enjoy coming here - Comfortable and cosy seating. Great for date night.

Great little cinema, just a shame the refreshments and snacks counter is operated by Benugo. Selling overpriced tiny portions, no fresh popcorn.
Can't not love getting cinema tickets for £5! Have enjoyed every visit, staff are lovely and the cinema is great.

Brilliant. Very reasonable prices for Central. Gets lively from 11, so be prepared to queue. Pianist from 11. Open till 2 so always a good night. Lovely for a quiet drink early evening if you like peace.
Hidden Gem, the Piano starts at 11pm and goes on until 2am, the musicians work hard to try and play all requests, great atmosphere!

'The Play that Went Wrong'. Awesome. Laughed so much. Fab performance. Amazing cast. Circle B13 and 14. Fab seats. Do not miss out - go see! So funny x Lovely theatre.
Nice little theatre with good views of the stage from all seats. Easy access but with very good security. Prices for drinks etc are the same as all other theatres. We watched "The play that goes wrong" and it was hilarious!

Intimate theatre with no bad seats and decent legroom. Seating in the stalls is relatively flat though, so beware tall people wearing big hats in the audience. The stage is raised enough to allow for a clear view for most. Unusually, opera glasses are available from row O in the stalls - despite the stage only being around 30-40 feet away. Handy if you forget your glasses I guess, but otherwise feels like an odd addition!
Tiny fairly well preserved theatre. It's squeezed in between other larger ' siblings' and it's easy to get pushed past the box office entrance so get here in good time to collect your tickets. I came to the order night of Dead Funny and it was. I was sat in the near to back row of the stalls and as it was a first ever solo trip to a theatre l didn't feel too exposed and my seated neighbours were very pleasant. I enjoyed the cosiness of the small venue, however it did mean one of the ushers did stare curiously at me bringing out my supper snacks from the bag beneath my seat !!
