How to book

To book online, just choose your film and time from the website. Then simply select your ticket options, check your seats and follow the payment instructions. Show your confirmation email on your phone to skip the queues.

If you prefer to book in person, just pop in to the cinema, on the day or in advance, and book your tickets with a member of staff.

Booking online

How do I choose my seats when booking online?

You’ll automatically be allocated seats when you book. To change them, just click on the allocated seats to cancel them and click where you’d prefer to sit.

I accidentally put in the wrong email address and now I haven't got my confirmation email.

No problem – we can search for your booking by name and phone number. If you let us know ahead of time, we can also give you your booking reference number so you can collect your tickets when you arrive.

I haven't got a printer. How do I use my online tickets?

You can either print your tickets at the ATM in the foyer, or give your details to a member of staff. You can also show your confirmation email on your phone – saves the environment.

Got another question about tickets? Just grab any member of staff in the cinema – we’re all here to help.

Gift cards

Gift cards are available at the box office or as an eGift Card. Our eGift cards work just like our normal gift cards and can be exchanged for cinema tickets, snacks and drinks. Just load your card from £5 to £100 and we’ll email it within minutes – either direct to you or the person you want to treat.

Opening times

We open approximately 30 minutes before the first film of the day and close shortly after the last film ends.
