If you walk to the cinema from the city, don’t be alarmed as the look of the area feels progressively worse - the cinema is a gem! Lovely place to eat and drink upstairs and this is the only place I’ve been to where you...More

This isn't a huge cinema but the seats are comfortable with high quality sound and screen. It appears recently renovated. A wider range of snack would be great.

The cinema is nice, overpriced but nice. The staff are so unfriendly tho. No hello or thanks or smiles. Much better service at Odeon or Vue.

We turned up 2 hours before the movie started we had drinks and pizza before the movie. We took our drinks into the movie. What a relaxing idea. The seat spacing is superb being one of long legs.
