Here’s what our 2023 audience members said about Square Cinema:

“A really relaxed and fun atmosphere in the buzz of the city centre, which probably comes from it being non ticketed and free – much appreciated in these tough times”

“Great atmospheric, people singing along to the movies!! It was the most perfect afternoon! And the fact that the film was subtitled was great! I am hard of hearing so was able to fully enjoy the film. Thank you!”

“To have spent very valuable and precious time with family and extended family completely relaxed and most importantly safe! I thoroughly enjoyed the care free aspect and the service from entry and advertising to the gentleman who picked litter were absolutely astounding and Brilliant!”

“I thought this was a great idea and super fun for the kids. The setup was great, toilets were clean and staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely attend this again.”

“Friendly security guard, great view, amazing atmosphere. Really good sound too and even the toilets were clean”

“It’s such a great event. Accessible art for everyone plus really good movies, friendly staff, great chairs, brilliant that it has toilets and just overall grand. I absolutely loved it!!! Thank you!”
