I have been here so many times and will no doubt many many more. Unbeatable prices for admission and very reasonably priced snacks. The cinema has always been spotlessly clean, and the staff are attentive and genuinely friendly. 100% recommend.

This place was great, fabulous price with ridiculously comfy leather chairs. My only gripe was that as it was very busy sometimes the volume of people eating meant it was very difficult to hear the quieter parts of the film and I missed a few...More

The Plaza is a delight. Showing all the current films on its 5 screens it only charges £2.50 weekdays and £3.50 at weekends, what a bargain. Leather seats with loads of leg room, good sound quality too.

Great old fashioned cinema. Takes me back to the day. Always up to date with the new releases. But the best bit £2.50 a seat. Amazing.

Sorry, I’m not there right now but not too expensive from memory. Plus M&S is across the road and the cinema doesn’t mind you bringing your own drinks etc
