An excellent experience awaits you at Thurso Cinema. From the polite and friendly staff right through to the comfortable clean auditoriums. Thurso Cinema might be a small two screen theatre but they are certainly big on customer service. They have a small car park outside the cinema which we used as the parking is free. There is ample street parking close by and there is a bus stop a mere few metres from the entrance. We used the nearest door to get into the building only to find we had walked into the public bar area but a kind and friendly member of staff directed us to the cinema side. The bar itself looked good, clean and fresh with a well stocked bar and plenty of seating and a pool table too. The cinema side itself was very clean too. There were plenty of film posters and cut outs that set the scene for a movie night perfectly and the movie quotes scribed on the walls as part of the decor are a nice touch too. We booked online which is a quick and simple enough exercise but beware that the description for the transaction on your bank statement will show as vista.co.nz which made me think someone had used our bank card to buy dodgy cheap business cards from an online printer. Never the less, we quoted our online booking reference and got our tickets easily. We then bought the usual juice and snacks which were typical of cinema prices. A good selection of sweets is available but no ice cream or popcorn was to be found. Also they sell Pepsi and not Coca Cola which I would have preferred but, you can’t win them all I suppose. We were quickly served and directed to the cinema screens upstairs. The auditoriums were spotlessly clean and comfortable. One of the auditoriums is slightly smaller than the other but this gives you a very welcome feeling of intimacy and would be great for those rom-com movies with the wife or girlfriend. The sound was amazingly sharp and clear and the ambient lighting just perfect. The staff are there to greet you and direct you into the correct screen and afterwards they were in to check the auditorium for any litter. Bins are just beside the doors so please use them. The cinema does have a table with loads of posters and film stuff on it. I am unsure what this is there for? Can you help yourself to posters or are they on sale? Unfortunately owing to the timing, the staff were all busy serving customers so I did not disturb them to ask but it would have been nice to grab a poster for the kids or the window clings of Monsters University would have went down well in the kids bedrooms. Anyway, I can highly recommend the Thurso Cinema and I would thank them for a very enjoyable night out. See you again soon.Report this
