All 10 screens are 1.85 ‘Flat’ as confirmed to me in a recent E-Mail from Vue. I presume this was a Ster Century standard when the cinema was built in 2002.

Then I presume the screens had top down masking for Scope films but now in the digital age Scope films just appear “letterboxed” on the screen.

What might have been passable in 2002 when Scope films were not as common as they are today, this hardly seems like good cinema standards today. These are certainly not current Vue standards but, I guess, it is difficult to fix without structural changes to the cinema.
