Went to watch the latest Pixels movie with my youngest son due to poor weather. The staff were very helpful and it had an old fashioned feel about the place. Prices were reasonable too. The screen we were in had the old fashioned curtains which made my son laugh and the style and lay out was also very retro. The... More

Great cinema and so cheap. We go every Monday when we can and usually see the same crowd. We pay about £2.49 for both of us!! It's also nice to sit on a couch and have a glass of wine in one of the screens. Looking forward to seeing Ted 2 this tomorrow. Hope it's not too rude for us... More

Been to this cinema on a few occasions now & always have a pleasant time. Three screens in a small seaside town is a bonus. I think the staff do an amazing job of keeping this place to such good standards & for the price you pay, it's fantastic. Screen 6, with it's comfy leather seats is the best and... More

A delightful cinema with 3 screens, one a luxury lounge with arm chairs and licenced bar. Friendly enthusiastic staff who can't do enough to please. Showing current releases, great value for money. Who'd want to go to a multiplex after being here?

We visited the cinema for the 20.50 performance. We were greeted by a smiling girl who looked up our booking and issued our tickets. The outside of the cinema is very scruffy and we were a little hesitant on entering. The foyer was very retro, cafe styled with the screens leading off up stairs from different sides. Our screen was... More

Screens are great and the sound awesome.. Lovely friendly staff and great value for money I don't know any other cinema that charges £4.99 per adult. The only thing we were unhappy about was the cleanliness! It's was awful... The seats were caked in dirt/dust the floor sticky and the ladies toilets had a strong smell of ammonia and the... More

I loved our visit to this cinema. We went to see the Hobbit and I could not believe how cheap the tickets were - 2 for under a tenner on a Saturday afternoon. The cinema was quirky and the theatre small but I really liked it. The chairs were the old style which lean back and give you leg space.... More

Little but large. Catering for all across the years. Hunger Games episode 3 part 1 is my next trip. I hope to see you there.

A real olde worlde cinema. Ticket prices are very low but refreshments just as extortionate as anywhere else. The screen we were in allowed bar drinks which was nice. There were also tables and leather settees and armchairs. LOADS of legroom. Clean toilets. Oh, the film was okay too!
