Amazing visit. Bean bags are really comfy, a nice change to normal seats. Really nice entrance and polite staff. Cinema is set up really nicely and has a story book feel, adds to the magic of the film.
We had so much fun here! The venue is brilliant and the staff were so friendly. After walking through a mini winter wonderland you are met with a warm and cosy cinema area, comfortable beanbag seats with blankets and a well stocked bar. I wish all cinema experiences were like this!

This place is a gem. Amazing independent cinema with an always up to date program and great screens and audio too. The seats are really comfortable, like you would expect a cinema to be and the prices are fairly low compared to a London cinema. Check out also for incredible deals combining food, drink and ticket. I've watched the latest star wars and trainspotting there, I would recommend it to anyone and it's for sure my first multi-screen choice!
£5 movies Monday to Wednesday - what’s not to love?! Normal price is £10 and you can get into the lounge cinema for a decent price. Good selection of movies playing and food and drink is cheap. And you can drink beers! There is also a really cool bar where they have live music and food. Such a cool venue

3 stars normally but since the Monday deal 5. The tickets are great on a Monday at £5. Ever since they brought out this deal it is the only night of the week I go and you always manage great seats as it is obviously a slow night. I have gone to dozens of movies since this deal came out and was always annoyed before at the price but now really enjoy the place. The extreme price is not justified and all regular price seats are fine so no need to spring for the vip. Only one cinema is small (bottom of the stairs with a code?) but even it is enjoyable.
Located in a very good place with underground connected. Mon cheap deals make watching moving easy. Sometime too busy.

Great theatre, great stuff! Too bad my daughter and I could not fully enjoy the show (Mamma Mia) for some rude and abnoxious girls behinds us who talked the whole time. There were many announcements about cell phones and photos, perhaps something should be mentioned about staying quite as well, although those ignorant girls would have probably ignored it anyway.
Mamma Mia is a spectacular show!

Puts on some very good, interesting and innovative productions but I agree with the excellent "Theatre Monkey" website that it's weirdly difficult to find the perfect seat in the main Theatre. The balcony seats feel far from the stage, with the view affected by a safety bar. The central seats in the stalls are accessed right from the end of the row (not good for claustrophobics). And the end of row seats in the stalls give a restricted, sideways view of the stage. The seats themselves are like super-plush benches, which my companion found very comfortable but not all do. There are many opportunities for eating and drinking in the Barbican. But the whole venue feels vast and pretty impersonal. What is definitely lovely is sitting outside in good weather on the lakeside terrace near the ponds - very restful, with a nearby cafe for a cup of tea, and a good place to arrange to meet.
I came here for a 3D movie. The service was fast and the seats in movie theater was comfortable enough. I like that we can bring our own snacks but I usually buy at the reasonably priced concession. Only issue is the 3D glasses which are too small. But love the ticket prices on Monday!

Small comfortable cinema but screens not big enough for the best cinema experience. Area for buying refreshments is incorporated within public cafe area so not very good set up and expensive.
As a student, the affordable Monday Madness (just 6 quid) and Student Tuesdays (5 quid) are a godsend. The cinemas are spacious and comfortable and almost never crowded -- and they don't show the typical films. So it's good for a weeknight unwind. Just make sure you know which screen you're booking online before going--they're far apart!
