This is simply the best cinema ever. We visit most weeks. Booking on line is an easy process - and recommended as it is such a popular venue. Sometimes we have to queue to get our tickets but the staff deal with the queues quickly...More

I would have given 5 stars to this cinema for price, comfort, staff friendliness and helpfulness, were it not for the air conditioning. We went to see The Children's Act on 12th September ( 2:45pm ) The cinema was full and our seats were in...More

We got the train to Dorchester, specifically to see 2 films at the plaza, The children's act, and Christopher Robin. There are four screens here, it's well laid out, and not at all soulless like your typical multiplex, seats are comfortable, best of all is...More

This cinema is small and cosy, it serves its purpose well. You can book online and it has all the films the bigger cinemas have you don't feel hemmed in.

Really enjoyed our visit here, very quaint and fun. You can easily book through the app and select your seats at the same time which is a great idea. Seats are very reasonable price starting at only £2.50 each. Nothing bad to say, loved it!

This is a newly refurbished building. It has nice staff, popcorn, drinks, sweets and inexpensive seats. It's great for family viewing. Suggest you collect your tickets before the show because if it's a popular film you will queue in the rain!!!

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
