Efficient ticket counter and a drinks and food facility that sold both alcoholic, non-alcoholic, cold and hot drinks. Within a shopping complex so very convenient. Nice seating areas in the foyer. Cinemas were small with very comfortable seating. Staff were lovely and so helpful.

Lovely comfortable seats and drinks and food which isn't just the basics. Smaller theatres for a closer atmosphere. Some seats are double seats for couples.

Recent visit to the Lido was very pleasant - coffe in the lobby before going into the movie was enjoyable and not rushed like the more large scale/corporate cinemas. Seating in the movie was also good and surroundsing well maintained.

I always enjoy movie night here. A great place to watch a movie in luxury sets and enjoy food & wine at the same time.

I went to this cinema yesterday with hubby and was expecting something semi-decent but was pleasantly surprised with something very, very nice. The service at the point of buying tickets and food/drink was good and the physical space and decor were also really lovely and...More

Only downside, no movie-theatre style popcorn! You can buy a bag of prepopped corn like you can at a grocery store but meh, it’s not the same. Lots of drinks. Comfortable seating, great view of the screen.
