Have not been there myself, but I gather it’s now VUE’s “flagship” operation and therefore thought this was the best page to put links to the above two sites (which do feature other cinemas.) Doesn’t look quite “flagship” no-compromise quality from the pictures I’ve seen of it though…

According to the first link, the switch from National Amusements to VUE at quite a late stage resulted in a few challenges with the construction.

Have seen The Artist, Magic in the Moonlight, Behind the Candleabra, Shutter Island, Crazy Hearts, Lincoln, Crash, Hugo, Carnage, Mr Turner (just last Sunday) and quite a few more here since it has opened…a great documentary about Vidal Sassoon with the man himself in person a few months before he passed…The Tree of Life with a crowd expecting a much more mainstream Brad Pitt film rather than a Terence Malick picture (which I loved)

Intended to be a National Amusements Delux became a few shortly before the mall opened and the cinema opened about 5 months after the mall in 2009

With the Vue Shepherd’s Bush (in a shopping complex across the road which dates back to 2001) our local multiplex for better or for worse

For better A decent mix of blockbuster and art house programming Screens that are well laid out with some rows of two or three off to the side for privacy Late shows now most nights in a good mall with very good eating options

For worse Ignorant staff who do not take responsibility for the shortfall’s of the company in terms of communication Poor alignment with the Westfield Mall website in terms of film times and pricing Scene screens with in seat service that have never really taken off – £19 for these screens is ludicrous (even though I have been known to have paid it)

Things could be far worse but a lot better with professional management rather than simply supervision
