I am a fond film go-er and often visit this cinema at least once a month. I have never been amazed at the place nor have i been bitterly dissopointed. It does the job for the town!!!

the atmosphere and decor are what you would expect from a cinema. good viewing experience. the price of food is slightly too expensive and the limited staff means you can be queuing for a long time

On both occasions staff would not acknowledge the mistake and I had to call for the manager. On the second occasion it became apparent that they had been... More
