“Fantastic for food and films”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Just how the cinema shoud be - cheap and delicious food in the cafe, great selection of DVDs, fairtrade chocolate in the vending machines, and wine to take into the comfy and beautiful screens. Great staff, brilliant selection of films both blockbuster and arthouse. Cheap too! Friday matinees for students cheaper than a coffee :)
