Saw a great 3D Movie at Gala best I've seen even when I've been to the big brand cinemas. The glasses were a lot more comfortable than normal, the prices lower so I was able to save more and the quality of the 3D screen was amazing

Small independent theatre which houses cinema screens downstairs and theatre on the ground floor. Have been here many times to use both facilities and seen some fantastic shows. Thoroughly recommended.

Not a bad seat in the theater. Coffee shop serves some lovely home made cakes and scones. Well worth a visit.

There are two sides to being small - it gets booked up early, and you are never far from the stage. The cinema downstairs is small and a bit overwhelming, but the theatre upstairs is, as Goldilocks would say, Just Right. It's intimate - and isn't that what you want in a theatre? Sound is good, visibility good from anywhere... More

Small theatre rooms converted into a poor quality cinema venue on occassions. Went to see a film, it was a bit like a projector on the wall in your school days. Disappointing, considering ti was also quite expensive.

We saw the audience with Helen Mirren beamed in. Good seating and a nice sized auditorium with really good views. There's a bar and a nice glass of wine during the interval. A great night out
