For £4 each you can see the latest films and park for free. Popcorn and other cinema treats are very reasonably priced too. The cinema is a little tired but the seats are comfortable. I can't fault the place, an absolute gem!

I took my Granddaughter for an afternoon treat. I am disabled and the fact you have free parking available directly opposite the cinema made the trip a lot easier. Our seats were comfortable enough. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful.
