6 reviews of Cineworld Southampton in English
Not the worst Cinema I have visited but the worst Cineworld I have. I’m seriously considering cancelling my Unlimited card (which I have had for a year for the excellent Cineworld in my home town Yeovil). It advertises films it does not show and it has very few showing times for the films it actually does show. Not a happy customer.
I prefer coming here to going to Odeon, although I find it sells out quicker sometimes and the queues for tickets can be horrendous so get in early if you can. There aren’t that many screens but it does show most the major movies coming out.
It’s a bit smaller in size, but the seats are nicer and more comfortable and the snacks are good from downstairs. There is also a lack of gangs of kids trying to spoil you’re film in front of you, from the times I’ve been!
This cinema is in a better location than Odeon if you’re coming from the East of the city, but that is the only thing going for it over Odeon really. Its smaller and more intimate but if you want a grand cinema experience its probably better to give it a miss. There is a WIDE choice of sweets and confectionary before you go into the cinema, so fitting in the seats could be an issue if you go often enough!!
This is my first choice of cinemas if it’s a weeknight. I prefer the seating arrangement as you can pick your seats. However – it has awful parking outside which you have to pay for if it’s before 6pm and sometimes we have had to drive to the Odeon in West Quay as we couldn’t find any parking. The snacks bar is quite limited – it’s better in Odeon as far more choice. However – there is a licensed bar upstairs so you can relax with a beer or wine before the film starts. If you are running late – don’t’ worry as the film doesn’t usually start until 15 minutes after the advertised time anyway. All in all – nice seats – bit more upmarket class of people go there – not many large groups of kids unlike the Odeon.
Prefer this cinema to the odeon down at leisure world, but it isn’t the best one by a long way. For a start, it can be extremely difficult to find a parking space and when you do, you need to go in the cinema to get a permit. Only has four screens, so you need to check before you go what time the film you want to watch is showing. Food is overpriced, particularly the pic n mix, and the seats fairly uncomfortable with very little leg room. There are a number of restaurants nearby - a Mexican one is just across the car park.
