Went there last night, was impressed by the place, seats are pretty comfortable. Hope it takes off and does well, there was only 4 of us in the 18:20 john Carter showing.

Was at the cinema myself last night. About 50 of us in at the 8:45 showing of Contraband.

There was an issue for the first few trailers with the cropping as mentioned before but didn't see any issue after that. The picture quality was very clear and the sound was good too. The seats where comfortable with plenty of leg room which was great as my knees used to be killing me by the end of a movie in storm.

Food is expense as is to be expected I suppose but all and all it was an enjoyable experience. The cinema as a whole is not that big but thats fine by me.

Just a quick question does anyone know if they sell cheesy nachos in the new cinema, we are going to see the hunger games on Friday and a friend is refusing to go until she finds out if they sell then

Havnt been out there yet, but I know Storms pic and sound quality has been perfect since their digital install.. I hear new cinema has the same so lets hope competition will be a good thing for cinema goers

Tell that to my friend who went to see Hunger Games at 8 last night and left at 8:45 because they couldn't get the projector to work/fix it. The amount of films the pair of us have gone to that have been faulty like that in Storm is unreal.

Going to this new cinema Sunday so looking forward to seeing how that is.

Something like this happened at the new Show Time cinema today, my friend went there at 3pm and after 15mins they could not get the film to play (why I don't know) but they did ring her and tell her that the 6pm showing would be working fine and it was.

I was there on Friday, the projectors weren't working came back five minutes later and it was grand. The local youth however arn't the best though, was seeing 21 Jump Street and they wouldn't stop jumping and screaming and running around. However beyond that enjoyable experience. Small cropping issue but I didn't notice it that much and the sound and visual are very good.

We went to 6 pm showing of Hunger Games . Thought it was excellent.

Widest screen I have seen in a while so we had to sit right at the back or it was disconcerting to watch- or maybe it was just me.

A bit of cropping on the adds - but who cares , if it was during the film we did'nt notice.

Great seats, very comfy and a great asset for all of us on the west side

Been there twice now, went to see The Muppets with my girlfriend, 2 brothers and sister for kids club on Saturday, 5 tickets for €20 inc. booking fee. I thought it was very reasonable. Food was great too, 13.50 or something like that for 2 Regular drinks, a large popcorn and a bag of sweets. For 5 of us to go cinema with food it was around €50 so I was happy out! Went back Sunday for 21 Jump Street and it was great, on in screen 1, very big screen, maybe a lil too big but great sound and video quality. I do hope that they get an Unlimited card as I would go more than once a week! They'd make their money off of me eating

saw The Hunger Games earlier, really impressed with the place, tons of legroom, seats lean back a fair bit, was in screen 2 and its pretty big, sound and picture were immaculate, even during the ads, which there werent too much of, four short ads and three trailers if I remember right, they've definitely got a new customer in me anyway would really recommend it.

Strawberry is red. Raspberry is blue. No, I don't know why either.
