It is a very dated establishment but the interior is still comfortable. The bar of snack food/confectionery is adequate and the staff are efficient and friendly. Unfortunately the new, better upholstered and extra comfortable VIP seating is not an option and although our last visit...More

I would definitely recommend using the cinema, which a lot of people miss because it's tucked away off the High Street in Shenley Road. I don't know why they don't have posters in the road to attract customers. Its next to the bingo hall and...More

This is our local cinema. The alternatives are many miles away. It is our first choice venue when we want to view a particular film.

hels202 is right but just a note to be careful if it's raining as the whole car park floods badly. And also watch out for when you do/don't need to buy a ticket as parking wardens do patrol even at weird times of the day.
