We went to see Dunkirk which looked and sounded great. Reasonable ticket prices. Good range of snacks and refreshments including craft beer. We sat on the balcony of this old school cinema building. Much nicer experience than going to large chain cinemas. Would throughly recommend.

A proper traditional cinema complete with gas lights! This cinema doesn't just show the run of the mill crowd pleasers it plays classic old films and lesser known titles. I recently visited for the Yorkshire Film Festival and l loved it.
