Places to go to see the latest releases

You can tell us more about Rugby.

  • ok,although the coffee mc never works and no desk for tickets
  • There is a good one on Leicester road By Tescos.
  • at junction 1, on ur way out of the shit hole
  • Cineworld multiplex ok, just watch out for the barryboys racing around in their underpowered heaps
  • The local cinema (in town) shut down YEARS ago. The "new" one on the retail park has a small ad in the local paper. The teenage STABBING incident, in the arcade in the lobby, recieved more space in the paper.
  • Cineworld on Junction One is ok if you don't get killed by some prick driving a badly modified 1.1 Fiesta up and down at 80mph trying to show off how big they are.
  • cineworld. just your average cinema. not much special at all.
  • theatre
  • Like our new cinema...very nice...but ice cream is overpriced..but tasty!
  • Cineworld at Junction One complex on Leicester Road. For main features, the delux screen is well worth paying the extra for, with private bar and generous leg-room: especially good for long films.
  • yeah we got one and it isn't too bad really. anything remotely obscure though and you'd better go to cov or brum.
  • Rugby has a cinema at last - and it's not at all bad. The Showcase mutliplex on Leicester Road has, ooh, probably about 8 or 9 screens, and is very plush and spacious. Tuesday's cheap night, and there are old films on Mondays and Wednesdays.
  • multiplex. they only had one screening of dogtown, didn't advertise it, and it was on a weeknight. avoid.
  • Cineworld, it's better than not having one at all, but it isnt excellent. The bowling alley should be open very soon, hopefully good, entertaining.
  • Go to The one by Boots on a Tuesday night, if you ignore all the Grebo kids it's actually quite cheap and the chairs are comfortable.
  • our cinema's crapy realy, but al least we got one. tis not as bad as leamington's!!
  • Cineworld!!!! Three screens filled with Postman Pat and PSiderman, but still its a cinema!!!
  • We have a Cinema, CineWorld, on the Leicester Rd. Shows all the recent releases. It's just a shame that the people of Rugby complained about not having a cinema, and now they've got one, they don't use it! Prolly be the same with the Bowling place when that's finished.
  • We do have a cinema now - very quiet, very crap (I TELL YOU THE SCREEN IS HALF THE SIZE IT SHOULD BE!) and maybe a bowling alley soon. Just follow the signs
  • There's now a multiscreen cinema about a mile from the M6 (junction 1). They're in the process of building a bowling alley next to it as well.
  • very good 9 screen multiplex in leicester road -- opened feb 2001
  • Cineworld's quite good but it only plays the very popular films. The less mainstream films are still played at Rugby theatre
  • Finally we have a cinema - Cineworld. It's near Tesco's.
  • Yay! We have a cinema now... 9 screens or something like that, and it has a deluxe option sometimes, where you can pay double the normal price just to get a bigger comfier chair! hurrah!
  • There the cineworld cinema which is cool cos it's close to frankie and benny's, mcdonalds, and a pizza hut. Also they show little known films on wednesdays i think, and foreign films quite often
  • Cineworld opened in Rugby at Leicester Road on 16th February 2001 (9 screens / 1,600 seats}, so your information is pathetically old for a web site of this type. I found this cinema to be one of the best in the area... well run, stylish, latest films, very comfortable and good prices. I certainly would not bother driving to Coventry to see anything there.
  • rugby has just got a new cinema its preety good actually
  • leicester road, 6 screen latest stuff etc...
  • Hurrah! New cinema built Feb 2001, except no-one uses it. Please do or the council will close it down (if they could ever be that quick off the mark)
  • well they finally built a cinema unfortunatly films are only on for about a week and the carpet is crap and the food is over priced you might as well just watch the telly!
  • The new cinema is now open on the leicester road. 9 screens i do beleive.
  • New cinema (CINEWORLD) opens February 16th 2001. (By the time you read this it will probably already be open)
  • Nope. The year 2001...only over 100 years of moving pictures...hope they're talkies.
  • We've got no bloody cinema. We probably do now but i've gone to fecking uni.
  • There is no cinema in Rugby you have to travel all the way to bloody Coventry
  • Good news they have started building a multiplex on the leicester road should be open november 00.
  • Unless what you want to watch is on at Rugby Theatre (for a very reasonable price) you have to make the trip to Coventry.
  • Well, here Rugby does come into it's own in the fact that there is one cinema which is very excited that it has a copy of a 1957 film on it's hands which it hopes will shortly be followed by films from 1958 and maybe even some other decades.
  • None, Coventry has bowling and a cinema.
  • Multiplex Cinema 10 minutes up the M6 at Coventry, typical multiplex. Otherwise in the town itself reasonably recent films shown at Rugby Theatre.
  • Still no cinema, most people roar off up the motorway to the Showcase near Coventry.
