“Most wonderful time of the year”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

This was the best day of my entire life. We went to see pocahontas with my 2 little cherubs, it was lovely. The film was incredible and we had a delightful time, afterwards we went for some food and all snuggled together. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a day out with their precious princesses x

“Great movies & setting!”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

I love this cinema. I went to see The Raiders of The Lost Ark here and it was the perfect setting. Plus you can get a drink from the bar while watching! :0)

“what a delight”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

just went to see " It's a wonderful life ". What a lovely venue! It was "wonderful" to see this film on the big screen. Although the cinema is small, when compared to the big cinemas, it was vwery comfortable, and indeed very busy! I had recently went to the Omni cinema and there was only 8 people in it!
Do not ignore this cinema, it has a lovely bistro for well priced meals and makes a refreshing change from those sterile multiplex places

“Fantastic for food and films”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Just how the cinema shoud be - cheap and delicious food in the cafe, great selection of DVDs, fairtrade chocolate in the vending machines, and wine to take into the comfy and beautiful screens. Great staff, brilliant selection of films both blockbuster and arthouse. Cheap too! Friday matinees for students cheaper than a coffee :)

“A missed generation”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

The Filmhouse usually have a very recent release, as well as a circa 1940s black-and-white offering. Very helpful and informative brochures to take away.
