“Great cinema”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Love the art deco building and the light and bright interior. Cinema is comfortable and the range of films a mix of commercial and more arthouse. The cafe is rather bland and sterile and most especially, the restaurant upstairs needs attention: really poor veggie options (and a mean main course portion) and the ambience is non-existent. I'd like to see this have a different feel from the downstairs cafe: the two are almost identical, certainly in appearance. It should be a buzzing place and it's very quiet. I really want this project to work: it's a community-run cinema and it's a fantastic concept. I wish it all success.

“loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

A great night out in Aberfeldy, dinner for two with drinks and tickets for a movie, and snug seats in the back row! at no extra cost...only £30 for the two of us. Very nice food with friendly service in restaurant and cinema is small and cosy with no "seat kickers"......joy, looking forward to our next night out.

“Traditional cinema back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Excellent refurbishment of an old closed cinema. Well worth a visit and no need anymore to go to Perth for the nearest cinema. Top tip though meal deal a bit pricey and limited. Go to the Croft Restaurant at the Black Watch Inn in the town instead. Better choice and half price before 3p.m.
