Situated on top of a major shopping mecca, this huge complex (the largest auditorium has 379 seats) often wilts under the pressure of sheer numbers, particularly at weekends when the rowdy teen crowd descends. Three of the theatres are ‘CinemaxX’ standard, with high-backed seats, perfect sight lines, super-large screens and digital surround sound. As with the Palace chain’s ‘Babes in Arms’ events, ‘Mums and Bubs’ sessions for movie-craving carers and their infants run twice a month. Bus 370, 412, 431, 432, 433, 434. Screens 12.
