TripAdvisor is an odd place.

 Incredibly depressing
 Suicide inducing
Is what one of the reviews comes down to.
too many gays trying it on & one tried to peer under my t shirt whilst changing in the changing room
he was only a member for 3 years. thats all he could take.
The Trocadero was amazing. It's pretty much closed except for the bullshit that nobody liked anyway. It was a gorgeous place full of excitement, and I used to go regularly until it closed. It truely saddens me that one of Londons GREATEST EVER attractions is reduced to this shit.
(I'm just sad I can't play Star Wars Pod Racer there anymore)
It's up by Cineworld.
They were going to trial it in Scotland a while ago. Very sad to never have gone...!
I realise that maybe nothing has changed and my anger must be coming from another source. I'm sorry.
it feels like a postapocalyptic nightclub from a particularly low-budget 90's australian kids' TV sci-fi
It was being used as a front for money laundering. Parent company got nabbed, it put the kibosh on everything overnight.
Used to be a good fun place to go. It is DISMAL now.
Namco Funscape is a shoddy alternative. The karaoke room is cheap though.
LME meet ***
Nice relaxed atmosphere, glasses, and cardigans until the jukebox got turned on. Arguments ensued, boys crying into their gin and tonics, girls in polkadot dresses screaming that only pj harvey understands them. Someone wrote this under all the graffiti in the toilets.
You guys are losing your touch
Quality and variety of service were applauded.
your mum's ranked quite highly by everyone i've spoken to
As party_penguin says “It's just a street”. Think there's a bus stop there, maybe
a good one. they need it.

it has one massive screen where you're sat on a small balcony upstairs and then there are just some sad broken chairs downstairs in an empty ballroom type space. And the other screen is tiny.
sounds like the kind of weird impractical/creepy cinemas I sometimes (literally I mean) dream about
i absolutely could not believe the state of the odeon. it's in muswell hill ffs! my parents started taking me to the one in barnet in about 1992 because the muswell hill one was so shit.
and I think you'll find it's just called
There's a mural on the way to the bogs (gents Ground Floor, Ladies, Lower Ground) of the tube going THROUGH big ben. Excellent.
If that's what you're asking?
