“Great little cinema, and far cheaper than the big chains”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Friendly staff, nice little cinema, intimate screens. Ok the seats aren't as modern as the Vue, and there is no real space to wait for your film, but you also pay about half the price. Their sweets and drinks are cheap, adn they dont seem to mind if you bring stuff in with you from Waitrose downstairs.

Worth saying that theres no wheelchair access due to the old building. Plenty of free parking in nearby streets

“Love it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Makes you wonder why other cinemas charge so much. Shows up to date films and is next to Waitrose if you prefer to snack on fruit. Snacks are not expensive in the cinema.

“A timewarp ... in a good way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

This is how cinemas used to be before multiplexes became the norm. Slight downside: the screens are not that big. However, this is outweighed (in my point of view) by the fact that the cinema-goers are altogether quieter and more courteous, the ticket prices are cheap (tickets under £5) and the staff are friendly. And, best of all, they sell cups of tea (served in actual mugs) - brillliant.
