This is a pleasant neighborhood three screen cinema in an affluent part of the city which has a very loyal audience and is also enthusiastically supported by the many students in the area... a little gem that still shines!

A fantastic local cinema with friendly staff and comfy seats inside the screens. Both tickets and snacks are much more reasonably priced than at other cinemas in Bristol, and it is a great facility for both the local community and visitors to Bristol.

It was like someone's front room! Very small, seats high back, but very low. Had to move back to the higher Seats to get a better view. Reasonable price. Can use Meerkat movies Tuesday's and Wednesday's. Ticket also gives a discount At certain eating places.
