The cinema has an indie feel to it, and you do get the impression that you are participating in a grand tradition of arty endeavour that stretches back to a time before Fab 5 Freddie and Grandmaster Flash made this city famous for something other than murders and mobsters.
Not cheap at 13 dollars for a movie with less than 10 in the audience at lunch time, and the cafe seems overpriced for the city too. On the other hand, it may well be the only place locally showing as varied a list of movies - eg the original Japanese Godzilla and other foreign films.
Seats are comfy, projection is clear.
I went to an obscure documentary movie about a team of guys who believed they were spiritual warriors and set out to make the ultimate psychedelic sci fi movie in the 1970s. No one with 15 million dollars to spare shared their conviction in the project so it never got made. The documentary was interesting, and I figured it'd be a long time before I would see it on TV and probably never at a cinema in Ireland.
