Although I didn't think the film we went to see at the Dominion was great, the First Class was a unique experience. I generally find modern cinemas very comfortable, with quite large seats and plenty leg room, but having a two seater sofa for you and your partner or friend is something you don't often see. It's on par with... More

Went to book online but was referred to the booking service over the phone. Tried them 7 times and was continuously put on hold. Not very helpful if you're wanting to book tickets

Seats are so cosy! Very romantic! Good choice of movies for variety of age groups. Only downside is there is no ice blast machines!!

My wife and I received an ultimate gift voucher for the Dominion for Christmas and when time allowed for us to fit it in we booked to see Beauty and the Beast. We got a taxi down from the Haymarket station as we didn't know the area and entering the place was like stepping into a 70's style cinema, like... More

A group of six of us went here for the fist time on the recommendation of my Daughter. Couldn't have been better. The seats are amazing. Lovely to have so much room and being brought drinks etc before the movie starts is fabulous. One of us though it was too relaxing but in my view there is no such thing!... More

We absolutely love the cinema. The seating is so comfortable being of double leather sofa and foot stools. The cinema is fully licensed and has a host of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks available. It also sells great food and snacks. Staff all wear nice uniforms and are all very friendly.

Been here a couple of times but last night we got tickets for the first class screen and it was amazing! I thought it was reasonable priced £25 for 2 on a comfy reclining sofa - Pringles and chocolates included. Once seated you are given a menu with a good selection of snacks and drinks and you are served from... More

My husband and I went to the Dominion for the first time on Monday and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. They don't have many movies on at a time but the standard of seating, and the attention of staff made it memorable. It is an Art Deco theatre with reclining leather sofas in first class, and large leather seats at... More

In 2017 they are introducing a new first class screen giving luxury seating and full table service.
