A lovely independent cinema with a variety of films and events. Also a nice outside area to have a drink on a nice evening - not tried the food yet though.

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!
