6 reviews of Dagenham Vue Cinema in English
This is as you would probably imagine much like any other vue cinema being part of a chain but i have to say i was impressed with how clean the cinema was, there was no pop corn around my feet which wasnt cleand up from the previous screening and i found the staff very pleasent.
Big multiplex cinema that’s a little past it’s best. Once very busy on a friday and saturday, with a consistent queue for the ticket booth and the snack counters. Though that’s several years ago when it was a Warner Village. When I’ve been there recently, it’s still got plenty of business, comfy seats, and standard ticket prices of just under £7 for an adult.
The cinema is clean, with a large entrance hall leading to the snack counter (which oddly is where you buy tickets these days - either the counter or the electronic ticket machines in the outer entrance).
Try not to wait around in the foyer for too long, though. The tellys high up seem to constantly change from letterbox to normal widescreen, and have done EVERY time I’ve been here for the last few years!
They’ve also got free parking, and not far from the 173 bus route.
This is a good cinema, even though its in the middle of nowhere - its nowhere near any tube stations (a good 15 minutes walk) and right next to the A13.
The prices are ok and the food isn’t that bad. What is annoying is theres a severe lack of atmosphere in the main entrance. Its like a hospital waiting room or a morgue!
Purely as a cinema this isn’t bad at all. It’s not usually busy and I’ve never had to queue for long. It’s a very pleasant cinema to go to - modern and comfortable and I’ve never had any problems with the quality of the screenings or the other customers who have been there. It’s a big, friendly, well decorated cinema with plenty of screens and plenty of choice.
It may seem harsh to judge a cinema on it’s location, but this would get a much higher rating if it wasn’t in Dagenham. Let me start by saying if you want to go to this cinema you should go by car. It’s very accessible and has a very big car park. I, unfortunately, made the mistake of going by tube, and when me and my friend got back to the station we encountered a group of guys who were extremely drunk and has obviously been fighting. One was covered in blood and one of the others had a broken bottle in his hand. We tried to turn away but before could we were mugged as one of the group held a broken bottle to our heads.
Now again, it may seem harsh to judge the cinema based on an unfortunate incident unconnected with the cinema in any way. As I said the actual cinema itself is excellent. But I have to judge this on the whole experience - if travelling by tube I’d would never go here again and I certainly wouldn’t take children. By car however, well worth a visit.
Now if you like to enjoy a good movie with out the worry or stress of say bumping into people you know, ducking and diving in all directions because you just don’t want to be seen. A new film’s just come out and you really don’t feel like attending a venue where everyone will be there and your queuing for a good fifteen minutes to half an hour maybe longer depending on the popularity of the film guess this could all be avoided by booking in advance, but if your not the best when it comes to planning ahead you might want to consider this cinema. Besides they’ve got good seats usually a discount on your next ticket and the screen sizes and space size is very good, nice quality toilets.
