With cinemas becoming more competitive its great to see Reading Cinema has focussed on good service. Other locations have more expansive menus but what was on offer was reasonably priced and tasted delicious. Staff bringing food and drinks into the cinema did so in a manner which didn't interrupt the viewing of the movie.

we came her on Saturday night to see a movie and decided on Gold Class so we could have dinner while watching. The reclining seats are very comfortable and our selected meal were brought to us at the time specified. Jen had chicken sliders, I had a seafood basket, both filling and tasty. The staff were friendly and efficient

Have been several times. Easy access, kept clean, Friendly staff. Gold class is excellent all be it expensive to eat there as with all cinema experiences. Would recommend eating before going and make a special night of it. Well worth it for a special couples evening.

Amazingly cheap - for a cinema in a shopping centre! Seats are comfortable. Toilets are inside past the ticket check-point (a long way past)

Convenient location with plenty of parking in westfield. Don't forget to bring your parking ticket in with you and scan it in the cinema for an extra hour free parking.

A good quality theatre with nice seats and good sound. Large screens and good value ticket prices. Not the flashiest of cinemas but for the price = excellent value

A great movie cinema I have been thus far. The Titan XC cinema is mind blowing and fantastic. the sound and the screen size and the seats are worth every cent you pay for.

Great way to watch a movie, reclining lounge chairs, alcoholic drinks for age appropriate people, with service throughout the movie, ect drinks food hot and cold. Such a fabulous idea.
