9.5 out of 10. I love this building especially at night. When i stand at the top floor the ugc sign is twice as tall as me!

Does anyone have any pictures of screens 1-3 as i find it so impressive how three screens of this size can fit into one floor.

Yeah get13 screens 1, 2 and 3 are bloody MASSIVE!

I have no idea how they managed to fit screens that size into the lower floors, especially Screen 1 - its a f**king cavern!

I'll try get some pics of inside it looks great inside aswell!

It's too busy and most of the exterior materials look cheap.

Its style is a mixture of medium-tech, post modernism and functionalism.

However, it's not a boring design. I also like the concept of having mostly one cinema per floor and fewer floors with two screens (and perhaps 3 smaller ones). A relatively nice variety of amusement, partying, pastimes and leisure all in the one scraper. Perfect for the hedonist.

A generous 6.5 from moi.

I kind of find it hideous. Its the kind of building that I think I would have to live near or use regularly to like. Like my love/hate affair with Hampstead's 02 Centre.

4/10
