“Great little Arthouse Cinema in a great little Wine village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2010

A homely, yet stylish, arthouse cinema with an open fire in Winter and a nice Garden with outside seating in Summer. Shows a decent range of arthouse films and offers a stylish place for an evening out in the little Wine village of Martinborough. Great pizzas, a decent wine list - take a glass of wine/beer into the film with you and enjoy seat service sorbets/sweeties! Friendly service and take away option for those staying close by -fabulous!!

“A little gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2010

We visited circus cinema earlier this year to see the vintners choice wine film. It is a boutique cinema with big comfy seats that also has a restaurant and bar area. The film has a wine tasting with it - you get 6 different tastes in a special tray that attaches by your seat. The film takes you through amazing scenery and the local wine industry. The local wine makers talk about the different wines and the film directs you when to taste each on to co-incide with the descriptions. Its pretty neat.
Afterwards we had an early dinner of pizza and salad which was YUM - try the pumpkin and feta pizza its great! We sat outside in the native garden to catch the evening sun.
