Easy to get tickets. There are machines there to get the tickets and they'll allow you to bring the PDF of the tickets on your phone. The only down fall is the amount of money that drinks and popcorn and all of the snacks that you get in there are really expensive so it is better to get drinks and snacks in a near by shop. Other than that it is an absolutely fantastic place to go and i would definitely recommend it to others.
Usually an great cinema, and being a Monday, all tickets were £4 which is excellent. However, the air-conditioning was not up to the job, despite being told that it was running. We were in a small theatre but with only perhaps 30 people in it, and even then it could not cope. I know that Vue is not responsible for the weather but it is responsible for the comfort of its customers. After 45 minutes we were on the verge of passing out - we both had a headache and sweat was dripping off us. We had no option but to walk out and ask for a refund. They dithered a bit over this but persistence won the day and we got a full refund for our tickets. So, Vue loses a star for poor air-conditioning but gains it back for at least recognising the problem and refunding us. Ironically, we went a few years ago in winter and the air-conditioning was so cold, we were actually shivering! We got our money back that time too so at least Vue is customer-friendly! To be fair, we've been numerous times to Vue and it's always been a positive experience, the exceptional heat this summer has clearly made things difficult for them.

I am always hesitant it when it comes to artisanal or independent movie theaters due to past experiences. I have found them to be overpriced, to show movies that are too specific and niche to enjoy with large groups of people or to have an elitist feeling to them. The Ultimate Picture Palace is none of those things. It is charming, fun, welcoming, well priced and shows such a wide variety of movies that I can always find a screening of something that I am in the mood for. It has the feeling of going to the cinema that I love. The classical set up in a beautiful building helps remind me of what I love about going to cinema for - the experience. The experience of going to a cinema with friends and sitting with a bunch of people and enjoying a movie is amplified in this homely environment (as opposed to more commercial cinemas). If someone is looking for the nostalgic feeling of seeing a movie then I can't recommend a better place.
Visiting from Australia, it was wonderful to find The Ultimate Picture Palace close to our B&B and showing North by Northwest as part of the Oxford Arts Festival. Good size theatre and well placed seats which allowed a great view of the screen. Lucky Oxford residents to have an independent cinema like this. We would certainly be regulars if we lived here!

This is a lovely cinema, especially if you see a show in theatre 1 in the balcony seats. It's more of a true theatre experience. It's the largest single theatre in Oxford and as a result when you see a big premiere movie you end up with a nice community feel (people clapping, etc). The only problem is that there is no lift to the balcony seats, which are worth the upgraded price to get.
Whenever I go with my disable son Steven, all the staffs there are very friendly, supportive & helpful. Many thanks William & everyone.

Beautiful architecture outside and inside. The seating inside can vary from mostly benches to a few regular seats, and there are a few columns that could obstruct your view. Tip: If you're attending a graduation ceremony or other event, get there early to get a good seat. I suggest you try to face the entrance as you wouldn't know in advance which side of the building your student might be seated (i.e. facing you or facing away). But, once it is your student's turn, they have to face the academic faculty, which means you can get decent photos of your student. Note that small children are typically not allowed into the Sheldonian as it is a solemn venue, so check in advance about the age restrictions.
This is a remarkable venue for live music, very small and with great acoustics. However, watch out for the fact that a lot of the seating is on benches with no backs which can be quite uncomfortable. The chairs are the most comfortable and practically put you in the orchestra (but are the most expensive).

I'm in a wheelchair and I find access very good and the staff very helpful. The theatre itself is very atmospheric and well priced. The only down side is price of ice-cream at the interval..! Jeez 😮
One of the best in the West! Box Office Staff are very helpful as well as the Front of House / Bar Staff are too. Nothing is too much trouble for the Ushers, always available to help with anything. The outside of the building looks tacky but the inside is just a completely different world. The venue is run by ATG (Ambassador Theatre Group) so what more can you expect?!
