We often come here all the way from Wimborne. It actually works out about the same price as Poole or Bournemouth, even taking into account the travel cost. But it's so much more pleasant than Tower Park - newer, cleaner, smaller, nicer seats, doesn't smell bad, not as many tacky crappy restaurants around. I bring my disabled son here quite... More

Friendly staff,comfy seats, good facilities and free parking. Good experience and NOT over priced. Other towns need to think about local people like Dorchester seem to be doing.

£4 is a very reasonable price to pay to see one of the latest films. Why can all Odeon Cinemas throughout the country charge the same - if they did I would certainly go to the cinema more often.

I came here with my 2 1/2yo, her first visit to a cinema! I found this cinema nice and clean and although the screens are smaller than most it really is no big deal to me as it is still much bigger than a TV. The young lady that served us was really kind especially as my toddler had just... More

We live about equal distance to Yeovil and Dorchester and to us it's a no brainer but to come to see a film here. £3.50 bargain and a real trendy building to boot. Come out and you're in the middle of fantastic eating places. Result.

This is a really lovely little cinema, it looks really nice, modern fittings and kept very clean throughout. The service is excellent too. The screening rooms themselves are quite small, but more intimate than tiny. Big special effects heavy blockbusters don't seem overpowering and small indie movies don't seem too small for the screen. The seats as with all Odeon... More
