I visited the cinema here with a group of friends. The whole building is very quaint with cobbled stones and old windows. There is a lovely eatery which was surprisingly busy. The cinema itself isnt too big which was actually very nice. It felt a bit more intimate. I also visited the building one weekend when they were holding a... More

Such a lovely space for the arts, with gallery space next door to the cinema itself. It's excellent value for money and a great experience. Love the fact you can take your drinks in to the screen with you. The cafe is buzzing and there are alot of different events on offer to attract a range of people!

But there is a café/bar and you can take in your tea/coffee/beer and cake! This venue also has... More

Superb place for films and transmissions of operas, ballet, plays etc. Friendly, warm ambiance in the cafe/bar. Excellent value all round Interesting activities. Check out their website. I have been going there for 25 years and Wolverhampton would be a poor place without it.

Great little place. Independent cinema that does show popular films but probably recognised for showing the type of film that is a bit more niche. Last time I visited was to see a National Theatre Live film of a ballet mix at the Royal Opera House - Carlos Acosta in Carmen. The Chubb Buildings are Victorian in origin - part... More
