The original auditoria here had raked flat floors. The stadium seating was achieved by building wooden stepped sections in the centre of the floor with passages either side for access. I know the manager and saw the work in progress. This method is very wasteful of floor space hence the marked reduction in seating capacity, though no doubt wider seats and increased seat pitch also played their part.

When I paid my customary visit to the new Cineworld in the Harvey Centre, on 31st January 2017, I took advantage of the occasion to also call in at this Cineworld, which I last visited in January 2000, while it was the Virgin. I saw “xXx: Return of Xander Cage”, starring Vin Diesel, in Screen 5. I was told that seating capacities are now: Screen 1:201, 2:115, 3:103, 4:103, 5:113 and 6:116. This total of 751 is less than half of the 1,553 stated under its previous branding. Judging by Screen 5, this appears to be more to do with newer, wider seats than any significant re-stepping of the seats. But the cinema is in fine shape; between them, the two six-screen Cineworlds finally provide the town with the multiplex capacity it deserves.

The Cineworld here has now been joined by a brand new 6 screen Cineworld on the upper level of the Harvey Centre in the town centre. This opened on December 9th 2016.

Seating capacities in this cinema were massively reduced when stadium seating was installed. Biggest is now around 240 seats.

I wouldn’t have wasted film on this, but digital costs little!! February 2009.
