I regularly go here rather than one of the chains . It is independently run . The staff are always knowledgeable and friendly . It is great being able to have a glass of wine or a cup of tea whilst watching the films

It might be a little bit run down but that adds to the charm . I understand that there are some plans to renovate . I hope they dont go too far !!

This place shows movies that have been out a while. It rotates through their movies very quickly so be sure to check online to see what they have playing. Seats are also not that comfortable. Ok for a budget cinema.

The UPP is a wonderful place. The programming is excellent, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming, and the well stocked bar a welcome extra.Highly recommended.

Very nice theater, showing worthwhile films (some of them rather off the beaten path) and serving beer. I don't see any weaknesses!
