Caters Heavily to Bollywood Movies
January 12, 2020
For comfort, this theatre is an easy 5 star. But English movie selection is poor, catering to the Bollywood fans. Seen a few but they're not really our style. Had too many issues here with families bringing young kids. They disturbed throughout the movie crying, yelling, standing on the chairs, throwing food, wiping dirty hands on seats, etc. Selfish adults turning it into their own personal space. Sat near ppl who had giant totes filled with BYO food, feeding the whole family including all the kids, making noise the whole time going in & out of their tote bag and rustling noise... for 2 hours. Rude. And how much food can ppl smuggle in and not be called out for it? Other theatres wouldn't allow this. They've also had Indian gang issues/activity at this location recently. Police have had to be called here a number of times. We live beside it and can hear/see from our home. There are cultural issues here which no one's addressing. It could be much better if management got their head out of the sand and dealt with it. Ppl's complaints about the washroom are petty. The washrooms are fine upstairs along with the games area and can be access easily by either the elevator or stairs. And use the facilities before the movie starts. PRO's: The seating is very comfortable. CON's: Unacceptable behaviour by customers + poor non-English movie selection (both management issues).
Nicely updated seating but not as good overall.

I use to go twice a week to watch a movie and I really like the new recliner seats they have installed. Sadly that's all the good and I haven't gone back in about a year. The concession sucks and like all cinemas is over priced. The main reason I don't go to this theater any more is because they only have a couple of new release Hollywood movies and a ton of Bollywood movies. I take my family to Richmond Silver City once a week and either New Westminster or Guildford once a week. The kids want to watch their movies and I like to watch my movies thus twice a week :)
A sad decline in every way from when it opened.

It's a shame. While some problems were always present (the absurd location of the washrooms, overtop the concession leading to a long walk and climb both ways. A simple pee-run will cost you 5-10 mins of movie time) but it used to be a well run theatre. Now the movies have badly calibrated audio, (my head nearly exploded watching Dunkirk. I had to strain to hear dialog but every gunshot sounded like a REAL gun fired beside my head. I literally felt pressure waves. it was painful) a badly overpriced and small selection of concession products and most annoying, many first-run movies that I want to watch will not be displayed here, because they run almost as much Bollywood as Hollywood movies. It's not TERRIBLE but it's not very good either. You are better off at the Langley colossus (Guildford is like a giant tomb inside now) then you are coming here.
Reclinerseats are the best

fun and enjoyable

I loved my experience there. not one problem with anyone that worked there and the movie experience was fun. they are always adding more movie things like games and food to help pass the time before the movie starts too. plus the staff are friendly and helpful and if your movie is not there playing they will usually suggest another theater or where to find the movie.
Best seats and popcorn

They always theme their snacks for a movie
BATHROOMS TOO FAR AWAY
November 27, 2016
I probably go to this theatre at least twice a month and 90% of the time I had a good experience. However, You will miss a huge chunk of your movie if you need to use the bathroom at this theatre becasue it is near the front of the theatre on the second floor. This theatre is usually really clean only a couple times it was a total mess . Concession sucks, not enough options, only popcorn, burgers and poutine. So for very special movies that I am really excited for like Star Wars or Marvel movies I always go to the Langley or Richmond theatre. They are much bigger and have more food choices. There is a huge Indian population near this theatre so it plays alot of Bollywood and Punjabi movies. Indian people love to watch movies so I think this theatre is smart enough to take advantage of this so they can make more money but if you aren't into Indian movies you may find this theatre is lacking in new Hollywood movies. For example, I really wanted to watch Moana on opening day but this theatre wasn't playing it so I had to drive an extra 20min to go to the Langley theatre.
Barely any new movies for non-east Indians...

I used to love this theatre. It's so close to my house and I'd go at least once a month to see a movie. That hasn't been the case lately because they barely have any non-Hindi movies these days! I think the theatre operators need to realize that there are other groups of people living in Surrey. I shouldn't have to drive out to Richmond or Langley to see a brand new movie because strawberry hill is playing five Indian movies and two English ones. It's pretty ridiculous and I know it's not just me that has stopped going due to their lack of selection. I have no issue with showing Indian movies, but they are pretty much an Indian movie only theatre these days and it sucks.
South Asian Theatre
September 04, 2016
My husband and I live near to the theatre and have been attending on a regular basis for many years. I am finding that there are too many South Asian movies and very few new Caucasian releases. If we want to go to the newest movies we have to go to Langley. Also the bathroom is too far to go. I would like one on the main floor, so you don't miss so much of the movie, if you have to go during the movie. We are good customers and want to continue attending so please address these issues. Right now there are 6 South Asian movies being shown.
