The picturehouse shows slightly more obscure and interesting films ,it is very comfortable and seems to be run by enthusiasts.The ,licenced,coffee shop is also a good addition ,it serves a range of upmarket ,read not cheap ,cakes and light meals throughout the day and evening.The evening we went for (make up your own burgers)was painfully slow and the wine list was on the pricey side.However,I think this is a good B.S.E Venue.

A great place to watch any film with a wide range to meet most tastes and at competitive prices particularly for members. Very comfortable seats unlike the big multi screen faceless places elsewhere. Real character and a personal touch. I love the place and would prefer to watch films here rather than anywhere else in the region. Good catering on site too.

An excellent alternative to the multinationals. Recently refurbished with comfortable arm chairs and is a little gem in the town centre with reasonable prices and discounts for pensioners during the afternoon.
well worth a visit

Only two screens but this cinema has been renovated to a high standard and it is a pleasure to visit. Really comfortable chairs, the staff are very friendly and you are taken to your seat, which is such a lovely touch. The cafe which is incorporated with the cinema is really worth a visit too, a small menu but extremely delicious, you can even take your glass of wine in the cinema with you. Lovely change from the bigger screen cinemas.

I have been taking our children to this cinema for 25+ years. It was always 'an experience' but since it's reincarnation as a Picturehouse it's turned into 'a joy'. Seats recline, there's a place for your drink (alcoholic if you like!), loads of leg room. Viewers tend to be older than at the multiplex across town so there is very little rustling of sweet wrappers, though occasionally you will hear the odd snore! Screening rooms are much smaller than the norm giving an intimate feel somehow. There is now a good looking cafe and I gather the burgers are fantastic! But the best thing is the manager who has been there for....oh, it must be 100 years! He is something of a town legend.
