Recent visit to the Lido was very pleasant - coffe in the lobby before going into the movie was enjoyable and not rushed like the more large scale/corporate cinemas. Seating in the movie was also good and surroundsing well maintained.

I always enjoy movie night here. A great place to watch a movie in luxury sets and enjoy food & wine at the same time.

Only downside, no movie-theatre style popcorn! You can buy a bag of prepopped corn like you can at a grocery store but meh, it’s not the same. Lots of drinks. Comfortable seating, great view of the screen.

I love this cinema, it feels so luxurious. The seats are wide, don't flip down. It's like being in a comfy armchair. Nice little shelf to put your G&T on while enjoying a film. Good choice of snacks, I love the coconut icecream. My son...More
