This is Best Cinema Experience You Can Have! A great bold fashioned cinema with online book, comfy seats and even sofas! You can take drinks from the bar to your seat, its a small cosy intimate place. I cannot think of any way I could improve it. OUTSTANDING!

I have been coming here for over 30 years and it's latest incarnation is the best of the lot. The films are current, the seats are comfortable and you can take your drinks in with you. The attached cafe is roomy but intimate with a great menu at reasonable prices to complete a lovely half day out.

I have now used this cafe for coffee and a chat on several occasions. It is clean, pleasant, comfortable and well run. The coffee and light snacks I have eaten are very attentively served and of a good quality, if at the top end of acceptable prices. A little delay can sometimes occur if busy, but the staff do a...

This is a great theatre! The seats are roomy, and there are even couch seats. They have a full bar and restaurant (Number 4 Hatter Street). The cup holders are even made to be able to accommodate a wine glass (bonus). They are normally only shown two or three movies a day as there are only two screens, but they... More
