Lovely little place
Aug 2019 • Family
We were at Rothesay for the day, we nipped into the Discovery Centre. We didn't know what it was until we were in. It's a tourist information centre, a gift shop and a cinema. The whole place is built some years ago, its Victorian build. The tourist information part gives you so much history of how people used to get there in Victorian day. They have a cinema in too x

Cosy and comfortable wee cinema
Jul 2019 • Couples
Small cinema but excellent screen,sound and super comfortable chairs. Prices are cheap( LESS than £6 for an adult!!!?) and you can have all the snacks you fancy at similar prices to a corner shop but no rip off popcorn.
A relaxing experience: highly recommended especially if followed by a long walk by the sea on the promenade.

What a lovely little cinema with fabulous friendly staff.
Good admission price, spotlessly clean, snack prices kept reasonable.
New comfortable seats.

Great place for information with very helpful and friendly staff. It’s not just tourist information but a whole discovery centre that you could easily spend half a day in.
Don’t miss this out on your visit to the island.

Most helpful information centre I have visited

A mine of information within Centre with really interested and helpful staff - especially Catherine. Tasteful gifts for sale and tea/coffee machine available for drinks whilst looking at literature. Lovely old footage on various films.

Helpful and interesting

Not knowing the island, a visit here provides a quick and effective overview of everything there is to do on Bute. Helpful staff make it all sound very interesting. The displays are somewhat lacking but - who cares ? the Island is such a treat.

Cinema
Apr 2017 • Friends
Small but cosy cinema.
Really enjoy visiting this cinema. Seats are really comfy and the whole place is kept spotlessly clean by friendly and welcoming staff.
Good little snack and sweet shop which is reasonably priced, as is the price for entry to the cinema itself. A fraction of the cost of cinemas on the mainland.
It may be small but it definitely has it all.
