Cinemas in Romford, Greater London*

Places to go to see the latest releases

You can tell us more about Romford.

  • The Vue's Screens in the Brewary are huge. Evidently leading to the end of all other cinemas in Romford.
  • the worst thing they done was knock down the ABC it was like going in a fuckin time warp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • I love the bluewater cinema - the special sofas section!! Yep - I would travel miles for that!
  • Festival leisure at Basildon
  • Romford has the best cinemas in miles..hell of a lot better than lakeside and chelmsford, but cant beat bluewater.
  • All crap since ABC got turned into flats.
  • ster century- dont go on saturday cause kids take over the upstairs area
  • romford is a classic cinema no1 can nock ster century, cheeper then the odean in leister square so its worth a trip.
  • Ster Century is okay for the more maistream films, but it won't show anything that isn't likely to be a moassive box-office hit, and the majority of people who wok there are complete morons. I advise you go to somewhere like the Odeon west End instead.
  • the brewery massive state of the art screens
  • STER CENTURY RULES!! top floor of the brewery all the films are there its expensive but you dont get horrible fold up chairs they are like arm chairs with loads of leg room and another mc donalds is near so dont buy their over expensive coke and popcorn go downstairs to sainsburys or mc donalds but they can usally smell the mc donalds so they didnt let me in at all even if i ate in front of them so i wasted 5.00 on a ticket
  • Ster century is top notch, with massive screens. if you book online you can even chose what seats to sit on my moving your mouse over a little plan of each of the cinema screens.
  • The Odeon was fantastic but has now been turned into an awful night club - Time and Envy. (Why go clubbing in a dive in Romford when London is so close?) The new Ster Century Cinema is great. Big screens - fantastic!
  • Ster Century is the only cinema in Romford.Sadly, no chance of cult or arty films, main stream hollywood only.Dont put yourself out.
  • Highly recommended, comfortable, and always enough seats.
  • Ster Century... the new one built on the site of the Brewery. Pretty cool. Big screens n lots of them, all the mainstream films at not too bad a price. Shame they had to close the Odean and ABC though.
  • Ster Century in the brewery is huge, real nice and comftable but after a certain time you have to pay 6 for a ticket!!!
  • Ster Century with its massive screens, wide seats, lots of leg room -- best cinema I have ever been to! And I have been to cinema in America.
  • Ster Century is ok but i get charged 4.50 to see a movie because I am 13 but look 16.
  • Ster Century at the Brury - by far the best cinema!
  • Yes the brewery has been knocked down, but now it has 12 wide screen STER american style cinema, bowling ally, frankie and benny's, the fmaous chippie harry ramstans, wonderful playtown - the kids adventure world, huge steak outback restaurant, pizza express, maccy d's, mama's and papa's, GAP, power house, JJB and JJD sports, Thomas Cook, TK max and not forgetting a massive sainsburys and the best bit of all...NANDO'S for an extra hot peri peri experience, trust I met my bloke there!!
  • Ah the Godiun which is now the entrance to the old shopping centre
  • Ster Century in the Brewery is sooooo cool! may be a bit pricey, but the screens are huge, as are the seats, and they play a good mix of movies. also, they pay attention to foreign and indie films, which is unusual for a big screen multiplex.
  • tempo front window
  • The odeon cinema in Liberty II shopping centre has closed down, along with the ABC cinema in South Street, Romford. A new Cinema has been re-built in the "Old Brewery" and it is massive, Ster Century is a little pricey though, but like the old saying goes, you get what you pay for!
  • wpuldnt personnly travel miles 2 c a film ere, but ignore all the comments above on the odeon, its shut down now, but they have got a nice 1 oN the brewery site, 3 of the biggest screens in europe. very pricey though @ 4.00 a ticket
  • Ster Century, my m8 fancies Micheal
  • If I wanted to go to the cinema I would definately aviod anywhere in Romford, I like my car just as it is!
  • Great when you were 13 and had just been knocked back from Hollywoods.
  • The new Ster Century Cinema on the old brewery site is meant to be really good, although i havnt bin there yet.
  • Odeon used to be a good meeting place to always pull. Otherwise go to the pool hall for a laugh. Rollerbowl is quality bredwin.
  • There are two giant cinemas in Romfors the New one which has just opened in the Brewery retail complex has 12 screens and the new specail effects in each screen. Great for taking the bird there. The other is in Liberty 2. This is a cheap and relaxing way to see the lastest releases.
  • an odean, and thats your lot.
  • The odeon is okay, but the people who work their all have attitude problems, Warner village Dagenham is much better, and a new cinema is being built in Romford due to open soon with a new shoping area, called the Brewry
  • Odean is good but expensive- students use ur student cards
  • New cinema opening soon.
  • They turned our local Palais into a bowling ally.Things aint wat they use ta be!! I think theres a song somewhere there? Ill have to work on it.
  • The Gomont use to be opposite the old Post Office but they knocked it down to create the mall into the liberty. Shame really as my Mum use to be the Albatross lady and I could get a free Kiora orange juice and chock ice . By the way Kiora is Maori for Welcome which is where Ive lived for 27 years.
  • Your average cinema - 6 screens, a couple have surround sound or something. City Limits in Collier Row a must - stand up comics, bar and restaurant, gym, bowling, arcades, although never should have got rid of the legendary Quaser!
  • I wouldn't travel miles to see a film there after going to the Ritzy in Brixton and the Screen on the Green in Islington. But what do you expect in Romford.
  • Odean Liberty 2 - Overpriced & overrated. ABC - o.k. if your skint, but needs a refurb. City Limits - It has bowling,about 20-30 lanes, pool tables & a few drinking holes, not bad on a Sunday night.
  • Romford has its fairshare of multi-screened cinemas but nothing special.Better off going to video shop, buying bottle wine and a take-away and curling up infront of your pro-logic wide screen 700watt home-entertainment system.
  • I'd travel to the West End personally. There was a decent Rollerbowl and Quasar in Collier Row but its changed hands and I've no idea what it's like now
  • Odeon usuallt does Premier Thursdays
  • The usual, Odeon atc. Interesting to see what the future holds for the planned 16-screen place on the new Brewery site...
  • ABC near the station (a bit naff) Or the Oden in Liberty 2 2nd floor (nice seats, but sneak your own food and drink in its a rip off)
