i had an amazing experience. and i also got given a two free extra large drinks of my choice because it was my birthday.
the escalator was broken at the start of the opening but i can see why because they did just open up.
Staff... staff was very approachable and understanding. they always say sorry for the long waits for the early birds like me.
Food... popcorn was delish I ordered 1 salty and 1 sweet and the both satisfied me. GET DOEN HERE NOW :)

Having attended the gala night I really enjoyed my visit. First time in ages I did not have to squirm around in the chair to get comfortable or peer around the person in front of me.
Sound quality and visuals were excellent.

Was surprised as told had to wear masks in foyer to see at least 6- 8 young people( approx 18 - 28) who were not wearing them. Member of staff who served us popcorn and the member of staff taking tickets all wearing them and very helpful and pleasant. Feel so bad for them that as of Friday Cineworld are closing again due to lack of film production.

First time visiting since moving from the crumbles but I loved it! It was a nice small screen room. Pre covid, max 100 people (in screen 5). I much prefer it this way. Covid measures are fab!

Hate the bright red and blue fluorescent lighting. So over the top and unnecessary. I can't wait to get into the darkness of the Screen and so have no idea what food and drink is for sale, as I can't bear to stand in the lobby longer than I have to. On the plus side the sears are comfy, access to seats is excellent, Screens quality is great, sound quality is great. Lovely experience apart from the lobby lighting.

This Cineworld is located at The Beacon in Eastbourne town after moving from the crumbles in the harbour. It is a much better cinema than before as you can now always see the screen due to the Raked seating.
Before in the crumbles 70% of the time you could not see the whole screen this is not a problem what so ever now. Nice seats and sound systems such an upgrade. Would have been nice to have added a Imax screen.

First time back seeing Tenet with covid-19 restrictions. Wear your mask folks, staff come in to check and enforce the rules! Great film, very fast paced. We were entertained! The new James Bond 'No Time to Die' is advertised as coming to cinemas in November 2020.

Really nice cinema much better than the old one. Screens are nice and big and seats are comfortable.

Very welcome Cineworld venue in the pretty town of Eastbourne you'll have to go through the shopping centre and up a couple of escalators to get in.
Pleased to say it's not been overcrowded since covid19 at least so far so currently probably relatively safe. They're playing a good few old classic films.

Have only given an average score,as unlike the photo of Cineworld at The Crumbles,which Tripadvisor has not updated to Cineworld at Beacon. You could park free of charge and pretty much always find a space and be within a minutes walk of the cinema and be in your seat within two minutes.The current situation is completely different,you can spend twenty minutes or more just looking for a space to park your car at busy times and are charged £1.00 per hour for each hour until Six o'clock and £1.00 for the remainder of the day.Being a Cineworld unlimited member and avid film goer this has cost me £6.00 in parking ,to view the films i have wanted to watch just in one day.The only relief from this charge is on a Sunday when the parking is free of charge, but it is equally as difficult to find a space.Having found a parking space it is then a ten minute walk or more to the screens, involving waiting for a lift at the multi storey car park and negotiating two escalators with a few minutes walk in between each.Having negotiated all of this on arriving you have to collect your ticket and climb another set of stairs to your seat.I will say the screens and sound are great and seats are comfortable enough,although some of them seem to be suffering from issues already. Personally i think upgrading the Crumbles cinema would have been a far better option and far more friendly to all ,particularly the Disabled who i know now struggle to have one of the simple enjoyments they had.

Costly parking before 6pm
Lots, and lots of walking
Lots of escalators
Lots of steps
Bright glaring lighting in the foyer
Expensive to watch a film
Awkward angle for viewing if seated in the rows nearer the screen
WE HATED IT - WE SHAN’T GO AGAIN

Why Eastbourne Council did you allow this to happen? A perfectly good cinema at Sovereign harbour closed and this move has also caused I believe the Curzon to close also.
Sovereign harbour had free out of town parking and a multiscreen cinema on the level.
To get to the new one you go through (at night) a deserted shopping centre, up several escalators to get to check in. Then (at least for screens 6&8) you have to climb up a steep rake to your seat (3 steps for each row)
Plus points - friendly staff and the sound is good.
