Went to Cineworld last night, the box office was closed (closed when we arrived at 5.45, still closed when we left at 8.30) so had to buy tickets from wall machines, this involves getting down on your knees among discarded popcorn etc in order to read the card payment screen. Went to buy snacks, long line of people waiting, only two staff working very slowly, gave up eventually & went to Ben & Jerrys counter where fewer people waiting, but only one member of staff serving at a chronically slow pace (making drinks involving crushed ice seemed to take forever) A small bottle of Appletizer was £2.55, we gave up eventually making it into the film 15mins after the advertised start time - though still in plenty of time for the film. Advice? Book in advance & take your own drinks/snacks, better still go somewhere that appreciated your business, Cineworld don't appear to give a stuff.
P.S. Life of Pi - great film.
