Reviewed January 26, 2013

Have attended movies in this small boutique theatre on several occasions... group bookings also possible and great when you have some platters/drinks beforehand - you can even take the food/drink into the movie theatre. The service area for the platters is very cosy so either keep with a small group (20-25) or be prepared to be at close quarters!
