This page details some of our favourite Northern Irish cinemas.
Screens: 7 screens. Big spacious seats with decent sized armrests.
Offers: £3.50 Tuesday for everyone. Student price £5. Full price £6.
Extras: A gorgeous new-ish cinema with great service and facilities. Nice popcorn. Weekends and Tuesdays have late showings of films (11pm) which I often take advantage of as not many cinemas offer this. Booking fee is 80p.
Screens: 12 screens (3 VIP). Comfortable enough seats in non-VIP but great privacy and comfort in the VIP suites for a pricier ticket.
Offers: £3 on Mondays for students, £2.50 Tuesday for everyone, £3 Thursday if you've signed up for their free membership and a free small popcorn is thrown in too! Student from £4.20 to £4.70. Full price £5 - £6.60.
Extras: Often does subtitled screenings for the hard of hearing, on top of some autism-friendly screenings. Plenty of special charity screenings as well. Nice popcorn. No booking fee online is a bonus! One of my favourite cinemas, just wish I could afford VIP more often!
Screens: 2 screens. The smaller screen 2's seats are not as cushioned as the screen 1's.
Offers: £4 for everybody on Mondays/Tuesdays. Student £4.00. Full price £6.50.
Extras: The indie film heart of Northern Ireland. I often go to QFT for films that aren't showing anywhere else. Often has special screenings of classic films. They've also got The Jameson Bar instead of a snacks counter for a bit more of an adult evening at the cinema.
Screens: 10 screens. Seats are generally ok but sometimes cramped.
Offers: £3 for everybody on Tuesdays. Student £4.50. Full price £4.30-£6.
Extras: This is the closest mainstream cinema for students at Queen's so is quite busy most weekday evenings (especially Tuesdays). Due to its 10 screens, it always has a wide range of choices regarding films and showtimes. No booking fee online is a bonus!
Screens: 7 screens. New good quality seating.
Offers: £3 Tuesday for everyone. Student price £4.50. Full price £5.50. Extra discount if booking online with a MyOmniplex account.
Extras: Recently refurbished cinema in the city centre. Now has an OmniMAXX screen which is a small version of IMAX at a premium price. Has allocated seating. Decent popcorn.

Film reviews and thought pieces that help explore and express what my faith means to me. By Neil Sedgewick.
Embarr Films was created by myself, Ethan Barr, as somewhere to share film views with local film lovers.
It all began in the early days of 2013 with a Twitter account. I used that account to post my film views and often tweeted little film reviews confined to those 140-character bubbles. We have since expanded and now also have a Facebook page where we're also happy for you to get in touch and share your thoughts!
I built this website myself from scratch in summer 2013 just to give Embarr Films a bigger web presence. Make sure to check out our Reviews and Views pages before you go and don't hesitate to get in touch!
We are based in Northern Ireland but more specifically, Derry in the North-West.
