12 reviews of CineWorld Bexleyheath in English
The prices are okay and the staff try, but it isn't worth the money. The cinema is badly looked after and always feels dirty. It is truly 'chav-tastic' with the cinema rarely checking ID's. You'll regularly get 10 giggling, screaming 12 year olds watching a 15 or 18 certificate. As others have said you can't bring in your own food, but their food leaves much to be desired. Menu items are poorly displayed, and the prices are hard to find. When you finally make it through the lines of half naked teenagers you find that what you're waiting for might be out (after this happening many times i can say with conviction that if there is a problem with a film or they are out of something...they WILL NOT advertise it). The coffee is horrible and the staff aren't always trained on how to use it, which is a kick in the face after they made you throw out your Starbucks or Thorntons Latte before you queued. So...as a round up...go if you have to, but there are several cinemas that are worth travelling to if you want to avoid wasting your money. Go to Bluewater, Greenwich Odeon, or...for the same price there is a gorgeous independent cinema in Greenwich for the same price with tasty, locally sourced snacks!
Well , it's been awhile since anyone gave a review of this place.. so here goes.
Yes, there is a keen difference between the closest alternative movie house's,
( Bluewater ), but over recent months seeing ' Holmes / Date Night / Iron Man 2 ', it
is clearly bouncing back after the ' Avatar ' sensation.
Service quality still fluctuates, (dependant upon day) , but overall unless you've
got yourself the latest Satellite packages, this Cineworld is providing very much
welcome entertainment in the local regions.
There's definately room for improvement, especially over the price / drinks on offer
by the main Kiosk. Some 'economy drive' , appears to be effecting the regular use
of the main ticket kiosk.
Oh, and I was one of the early visitors attending the 'George of the Jungle' viewing
when this place got opened.
I’ll close by doing my best London barrow-guy holler , “ Roll up – Roll up ….,
all of London , get round to Cineworld Bexleyheath , for a ‘ furry ‘-great time “.
Cineworld cinema is not a patch on its Bluewater rival as it is dirty and often very busy.
The food and drink prices are expensive and they do not stock a great range to choose from.
On Tuesdays they do a promotion where you can get a seat for less than the normal ticket price and this is very popular. I would advise to buy your ticket in advance, especially for new films if you want to take advantage of this promotion.
Overall, this cinema is OK, but if I had a choice I would go to Showcase in Bluewater.
Love this cinema, go there loads. They have many good offers such as the Orange Wednesdays, all films are £4 on tuedays and on saturday mornings you can go watch a choice of 3 films for £1 per person (these are kids films but I still find them quite fun when I take my sister). The only thing I don’t like is the price for popcorn and drinks on their own but then together they do deals which work out better. They usually have posters that they give away as well, and the cinema has a little arcade which is fun for people waiting to go into the film.
A typical multiplex cinema at the east end of Bexleyheath Broadway. There are 8 screens which show most of the latest releases. There are 3 local carparks, all within 200 yards and are Council owned & operated. They are the “Cinema”, “Civic” & “Albion Road”, the charges vary from 20-80p per hour to £3-£6 per day.
As with most cinemas the prices for food and drink are extortionate and they try to stop you bringing your own in. There is nothing special about this cinema.
One word always pops to mind when thinking of cineworld Bexleyheath, FLEAPIT! Ah but don’t let that put you off, you see Cineworld Bexleyheath even though it’s seats are broken and more than likely taped off half the time, even though it’s a bit smelly and normally cold. Even though the films sometimes come on too small or too fuzzy and you have to go and complain and even though it’s normally full of moronic kids chucking popcorn and making a racket well even though all those things Cineworld Bexleyheath still manages to capture that old charm that many large film emporiums have now lost. There’s lots of happy helpful staff and there’s 2 disabled loos which is good. You can’t take your own food in but hey that’s never stopped us sneaking it in especially as food and drink is very expensive there. Overall it’s worth a night out.
This isn’t a bad little cinema if you’re not prepared to travel to Bluewater, the chairs are quite comfortable and it has an ample number of modern screens, always showing the current blockbusters. It’s not cheap, nowadays around £8 a ticket I believe, but they do tend to do quite a few promotions such as orange wednesdays and various 2 for 1 offers can be had if you look in the right places.
There can be the general problems of kids ruining the films, but generally if you plan a trip when they are tucked up in bed you’ll have no problems at all. The food/drink are overpriced much like any other cinema, I’d recommend taking some snacks in a bag if you want, the staff generally don’t care about that.
All in all this is a reasonable cinema, there are much worse and it’s the best in the local area.
Its a great town centre cinema with good places to eat around it so makes getting there great. Prices are reasonable- I went there two Tuesdays on a row before my baby arrived as they did a cheap deal. I know of a couple of cinemas locally that do mother and baby cinema so it would be great if they did it here too. They always show the latest movies and turnaround is relatively good with the staff cleaning up quick before you go in for the next movie. They also do free entry for those in the Emergency Services and discounts fr students, OAPs etc.
The last few times I have been there I have been disappointed. The film got stopped after 10 minutes last time and then restarted again - not great wheny ou are watching a kids movie and some can’t understand why they are watching the same bit again.
I think its a bit run down now and needs a bit of an overhaul. The ticket machines often don’t work and the prices of food etc is very high.
There is always a good range of films on show.The cinema is in a central position so easily accessable by public transport. You aren’t allowed to take your own sweets of drinks in so it can be and expensive day out if you have several children to buy refreshments for. Having said that there are often special offers that can help save money in these difficult times.
