The Vue cinema at Ocean Terminal is my preferred cinema of choice for mainstream films. I also love The Filmhouse and The Cameo, but for new releases, I head down the road and park my backside in one of the spacious screens in Leith.
Prices vary widely depending on when you go, but they’ve recently introduced a teen ticket making it slightly cheaper for 13-18 year olds to see something without having to pay the adult price.
There are reductions for pensioners (and even special screenings on a Wednesday complete with tea). Reduced prices apply to children and students, but perhaps the best offer of all is ‘cheap Tuesdays’. Pick up an application in the foyer with has a push out card within it and every Tuesday, all day, you only pay £4.10 per movie.
The other handy thing that this (and other) Vue cinemas do is give you a money off voucher for your next visit, as along as it’s within two weeks. £1.50 is offered off adult tickets and 75p off children’s ones making it a little easier on the pocket.
Digitial 3D films cost £2.30 extra for adults. You can also upgrade your seat now to a slightly larger leather one for an extra £1.30, but I find that there is ample leg room and comfort in the normal seat.
A wide selection of popcorn, hot dogs and drinks are available but of course, overpriced but with such a good selection of places to eat with the centre, I would be choosing elsewhere.
Suitable for disabled ? Yes, completely, with space for wheelchairs within the screens, but book ahead to reserve one if going at peak time.
