Gave this another shot after a previous negative experience for Deadpool opening . Nothing changed. Chaos in foyer. No ticket kiosk open. Massive food queue/gave up. Filthy smelly toilets. To cap it all. Very low sound from movie & picture not even filling the screen. The place is a joke

I love this place. It seems to be family run and has a lovely atmosphere about it. Digital sound and picture now. Wednesday nights are great value. €10 gets you admission, a medium popcorn and drink. Where else would you get it???

tiny screens poor sound unfriendly staff. I have nothing good to say about this cinema apart from the fact that is in Kilkenny! I suggest using carlow or waterford cinemas if you value your cinematic experience. You'd be better off watching a movie at home rather than spend hard earned cash for a poorer picture and inferior sound quality to... More

I dont often go to the cinema, but it was raining buckets, so rare this summer. We had no problems with the queue and it was packed. Staff were friendly. Probably downside and it seems to be a common problem at cinemas- unhealthy snack choices dominate.

Went to see a kids movie here recently. As expected it was packed, as it was a treat for all we decided we would get popcorn and drinks......I stood in a Q for over 15 minutes and it still hadn't moved.....the movie started and I was still in the Q...... I got the others to go into their seats so... More

OK I'm writing this after giving this place so many chances but at this point I have reached the end of the line. I went this evening for 4.55 show with two of my children. Massive queue, one teenager serving snacks and selling tickets. Automated kiosk doesn't take cash so back to the queue, no move- film about to start,... More

Brought my fiancée here who is from kilkenny six and half years ago for our first date and I couldn't believe how small it was. It has changed a lot over that time, but I still love going there on a Friday nite especially on a rainy day. Very cosy. Cheaper then my local Liffey valley but nothing in comparison... More

Some staff off putting. Price for sweet popcorn and drinks over the top. Otherwise the cinema is ok.
