Cinemas in Glasgow
145-159 West Nile Street
This cinema is in the city centre of Glasgow and quite convenient if you are going out for meal before hand. It shows huge number of films over as many floors. It is quite pricey but all cinemas are these days and the snacks and drinks prices are extortionate especially on bottles of water. Seats are quite comfy and ambience nice. It gets quite busy on some Fridays and Saturdays especially the first one after a pay day so at those times book ahead if you are particular about what you want to see and to avoid the waiting and the disappointment (there is a little machine which releases your tickets when you put your card in).

This cinema now owned by the company Cineworld is located near the Buchanan Galleries Shopping Center. While it's true that the tickets are a bit expensive, I have found that their prices are not much different than other cinemas. The cinema offers a wide range of movies and times. You can also take advantage of "Orange Wednesdays" here since they participate. So you can buy one ticket and get the second free which is a pretty good deal. I would not recommend buying snacks at the cinema though because the prices are extremely high. Getting popcorn and drink can cost almost as much as the movie tickets. All the theaters are clean with plenty of seats, although I would recommend going at a least busy time for a more enjoyable experience.

The multiplex gets a bad name from the snootier filmgoer but while I'd hate it to replace or drive out my beloved GFT, I've got to speak up for the UGC/Cineworld as it should be called. The tickets are expensive BUT you don't have to pay full price - get a Cineworld pass, see at least two films a month and you will save a packet. Or go on Wednesdays and team up with a friend to do the Orange Wednesdays phone thing. You don't have to buy the pricey sweets etc, take something in (I've heard of people getting them confiscated but only if they are taking the mickey, if you have one small packet you'll be fine, if you're having more than that you're greedy anyway). And they have a great range of movies, it's not just the big blockbusters, but foreign movies and indie films and even Bollywood hits as well.

The UGC is in a fantastic location in town, theres a bar attached to the place also, which is handy to go after a film. However the prices are way too high, almost Â£7 for an adult ticket. If your a student its not so bad though, as you get a discount. Beware though, the queue is often large, and snakes outside the building. If you go on a friday night, make sure you book or you might end up dissapointed. Newsagent right across the road to buy things to eat during the film, as the prices for popcorn are outrageous.

UGC Glasgow AKA Cineworld is two minutes walk from Buchanan Bus Station, so is exceptionally handy for catching the bus home. Drawbacks to this cinema is queues for the lifts especially at busy times. If you are able-bodied use the escalators and leave the lifts to the disabled/mums and kids. The other drawback (but not for me) is the views. If you have a problem with heights best not look out of the windows (and there are lots of them). Pluses include plenty of places to buy the obligatory popcorn and hotdog. Also available are tea, coffee, and alcoholic drinks. Toilets are kept to a very high standard of cleanliness. Staff cannot be faulted.

THE UGC, now known as Cineworld, in Glasgow, is perhaps one of the best places to see top quality movies. With dozens of screens in a multiplex format, it is possible to see any of the big releases essentially whenever you want. Boasting a unlimited cinema card scheme, it is possible to, for (around 20 pounds) see all the films you want in a month - recommended for both film lovers and also those who need time to kill regularly in glasgow while, say, waiting for transport.The staff are all friendly, and there is of course a wide variety of drinks, confectionary and so on which can be consumed while viewing the movie of your choice. Ideally situated in the middle of Glasgow near the top of Buchanan St/Bottom of Sauchiehall St, it is easy to get to and overall a highly recommended experience.
