Has anyone been and is it any good?

I've been told the gallery has unlimited food, but it just says 'complimentary refeshments' on the website. I don't want us to skip tea for unlimited food to find out it's just one thing each tease

Also I've not seen gallery seats before but a quick google says it's on a mezzanine floor above the other cinema, would that work with imax? Would you be able to see the bottom of the screen? Sorry if it's a stupid question but that's how it sounds tease

Thanks!

ummmm I have a picture somewhere...I'll have a hunt in the pics album.

Theres unlimited popcorn (salted & sweet), natzo's (whatever they're called) with sauces. Unlimited soft drinks and costa coffee (only thing that kept me awake through some movies)


Theres a bar up there, drinks are....I think it was like £2.75 for a bottle of bud. I'm not sure hun cos I only drink on the very few occassions.

I thinks its great, the seats in the VIP area are so much more comfortable and roomy (which is why my son (the one with aspergers) will only go there as you're not sitting too close to him).

If you like to go the cinema and you always buy the deal that usually consists of a large popcorn and a large drink, like we do (and we share it between us). Than its worth paying the price for the VIP area, plus you can have as much popcorn and drinks as you can eat! lol
and its comfortable.

It usually costs me about £50 each time to take Matt, but I'd be paying that anywhere else really...and he'd never go into any other cinema...bearly leaves the house as hes agoraphobic. so its worth it for us...

I'll try and find that piccie for you.

Excuse the quality...it was took as we were passing,on the way out.

Yeah they have a couple of booths and a few sofas, as you can see on the picture. And the bar is just to the left, in the middle.

To really enjoy the full experience of it and to get your moneys worth, go about a 45mins - to an hour before the movie starts.
That way you can enjoy a cuppa, settle in, etc before you go to watch the movie.

Theres also ushers there, so they let you know when the movie is about to start and they check if you're comfortable etc.

Aww sorry it wasn't good Toffeenose! It's so annoying when people just ruin the whole thing! We had a guy talking on his phone most of the way through behind us, even ordering a pizza for afterwards!

I've been to 2 Imax Galleries.
One in Manchester and Liverpool One. deffo love the Liverpool one most.

If you're going today, the gallery access area is right on the very top floor. Either get the lift straight up there, or if you're going up the escalators, just keep going up until you see a massive Gold Oscar statue.

I only say this cos we got lost the first we went

The Gallery area is 18+, i just checked...I guess the friend must have went to a family showing Toffee? Sorry they had a bad experience there...thats another why my son hates the cinema and will only go the Gallery so hes not sitting near other kids (he just isn't capable of tolerating them). The VIP area in the cinema itself is cut off from the general sitting areas you see.

Aww it was great! laugh we went in about 40 mins before and had a load of nachos, then took in a thing of popcorn each and another drink. Then I noticed the quality street and they gave me a cup so i could take more tease the seats were good with being able to move the arm rest and the little table on the side of the chair to put stuff on grin

It was good too cos we sat in the middle seats but this guy's head was in the way, so we moved along one but it still felt like we were in the middle somehow! Plus the film was amazing too so it was all good grin

glad you really enjoyed the experience hun.

See what I mean about the seats in the cinema, so much nicer isn't it!!! I loved those little tables on the side.

Don't you think its worth paying for it, considering you probably would've ended up paying more had you brought what you ate, at the till?
