    I think it would be an Idea if we built a data base of UK cinema's so the could avoid the bad and prase the good.
    Sort of a good cinema Guide.
    So here goes

    Regent Cinema, Wantage
    Address: 2 Newbury Street, Wantage, Oxfordshire, OX12 8BU
    Tel: 01235 771155 (Dont bother you cannot Pre Book)
    Screens/seats: 2 Screens: 112, 87
    Disabled access: No
    Sound: Dolby (Not Dolby Digital)

    Rating 6/10

    Whats Good Price £3 MONDAYS plus afternoon and early evening. Nearby parking £1 for 4hours Free after 18:30.

    Whats Bad Not Dolby Digital, You can see a join on the screen if you sit to close. Also the snacks and a bit on the poor side.

    General: Its a small Village cinema Picure and sound OK but great price if you want to go regularly. Just take your own Icecream

    Bognor Regis Picturedrome Screen 1

    The oldest cinema in West Sussex, big, ancient decor (and seats) but Dolby Digital and low prices on Tuesdays.

    Still prefer it to the Warner Village (and that's pretty good) but for the authentic atmosphere the Picturedrome has it every time.

    I've been going there for forty years. I saw The Dambusters there when it was current and the effects were sh*te even then.

    But a great cinema! Long may it continue in it's current form.

    (Easy parking loads of eating places especially The Bombay Tandoori)

    This cinema does not exist anymore, but used to be a fav of mine.

    A few years ago in Acton (west london), there use to a cinema by the railway bridge on the High st, it seated at most 50 ppl, at the back was a bar, and you could bring your dinks to your seat where you had a mini 'flap', (like scholl desks), for which to rest your drink.

    THey used to show films that were off mass circulation or just some odd interesting ones, basically anyone who went there had alrady seen it. I saw evil dead 2 there once for the sceond time, drinking beer with my mates, nattering away (as with others). It was bit like a lads night in with beer and movies.

    Great days..

    IMAX in Bristol.
    UGC in Cardiff, Mary Ann Street is excellent.
    There is supposed to be a Ster Century opening in Millenium Plaza but there has been very little activity for a while.

    Mann's Chinese Theatre - L.A. :D

    It is not necessarliy a great cinema in terms of audio and video presentation, luxury seating etc, but historically it just feels like the home of cinema! So many premieres, so many memories! :)

    I don't think I've seen an impressive cinema in the Birmingham area...

    I remember going to the first multi-screen cinema called 'the point' in milton keynes when I was a youngster :D
