It is like sitting with close family and friends, watching a really good movie. This is a small cinema and has a really special intimate feel. Everyone laughs together or cries together. Depending on what is being watched. Brilliant!

Lots of information on Robert Burns and his life in Dumfries. Worth visiting even if your knowledge of Burns doesn't extend much beyond "Auld Lang Syne". If you can only find time for one of the Burns related sites in Dumfries suggest this one.
