Hello a51_ufo, The Cineworld was never an Odeon Cinema. It was previously an MGM Cannon Cinema. The Odeon was located in the city centre.

Cineworld is an ok cinema but that’s as far as it goes it feels dated now and the cinema experience is not the best it has a few facilities such as a bar but im not sure that’s used anymore. The good things about it are its cheaper than the next nearest cinema and parking is better as its not as busy.

I took the kids here on a saturday morning for the early showings of kids films from a few months back.
Means the kids get in for £1 each
Have Cineworld made the decision to leave all heating off on these mornings as we are only paying £1 per person?
Does the cheaper showings mean we all have to get pneumonia?
People in the theatre where literally blowing icy clouds from their mouths and all the children where complaining of cold.
never mind the kids.. we adults were too.
We had to sit in coats and scarfs the entire film... the kids didn't want a coke.. they were asking for hot tea to warm them up! ( lol) ok.. that's a fabrication.. but a cup of tea to pour on our frozen paws would have been nice!#
Couldn't wait to get out of there.
Would NEVER go again...!
This is just this cinema.. we have been to the St.Helens cineworld of a saturday morning too.. and we didn't catch colds sitting in there ;-)
As mentioned before, this was an Odeon cinema and has been taken over by Cineworld. It is small, with about 6 screens and the steats are not very stagged - that is if someone sits in front of you your view is ruined!! They should bring their prices down to reflect the poor layout of the seating! I very rarely go here anymore and make the trip to either Cineworld, Llandudno or The Vue in Cheshire oaks…worth the journey!!
Oh, I’ve never been caught sneaking food in! :P

Since the Odeon closed in Chester ( I’m still too upset to talk about that ) this is one of the main cinema’s left in the Chester area. It’s a fair size, on the greyhound retail park next to the tenpin bowling centre, so there’s plenty for families to do if not everyone wants to watch a film.
As with all cinemas these days the sweets and other confectionary are SO expensive but they’re getting more strict on what you try and sneak in these days so you either need to be more careful, go without, or hope the kids pick the cheapest sweets available.
As stated, it’s a fairly big cinema with plenty of screens so you tend to find a decent amount of showings for the more popular and newest films. However, in doubt i would pre-book !! Whilst their little automatic pre-booking machines don’t always work, the staff are really helpful to try and sort out any problems. These days for an adult and child’s ticket it is £10 unless you are watching an evening movie and then it’s an extra £1 for some reason. They only have two people on tills at the entrance which isn’t enough for just before the films start since they’re so busy and everyone seems to pay with cards these days so that takes even longer.
However, the cinema itself seems fairly clean and tidy and offer various things to help the kids and adults pass the time until the next film, and they also have booster seats for those times when the little ones need a little boost or when an adult comes and sits in front of a 3 year old, even though there are plenty of other seats available !!
All in all, it’s a decent cinema considering the Odeon has now closed and there’s not much else, but unless you drive, know the bus timetable or are willing to pay for a taxi it’s a bit of a pain to get too since it’s out of the main city centre. That said, there’s a park and ride down the road which helps if you like to travel into Chester on public transport.
