My husband drags me here all the time but I don't know why I resist. Its a great atmosphere and has some fantastic movies Plus you can take a glass of wine or a beer into the movie if you want which is always a bonus!

Had a good trip to the venue during the film festival to see the surprise movie. Nice little venue, big enough but still had a traditional feel about it. They coped with a surprise wheelchair well and were very helpful to make sure I could still have a seat.
Will visit again.

Loved our visit to the Filmhouse, it was great to see an independent doing so well. The foyer could've been a little more customer friendly though, but the staff were very helpful and more than made up for the overwhelming clutter and indistinct signage. The Cafe bar had a welcoming atmosphere but was a little grubby around the edges and had the look of a burger joint. The screening itself was done well, with good sound. The seats were comfortable and it was great to be able to take your drinks from the bar into the screening. It had the atmosphere of a venue that was serious about film, but could think a little more about design and layout.

The Filmhouse cafe is in dire need of a makeover. It is dated, dark and depressing. The carpet is disgusting and must be filthy it has been there so long. The tables and chairs are horrible. Why are there no old film posters decorating the walls? The menu, although actually quite good, hasn't changed in years and really needs a bit of updating and tweaking. The coffee is weak. I would love to go there more often but sadly don't feel motivated to do so. In short, they have become complacent and set in their ways.

Been a few times , great Films and a really nice cafe , not too cheap but good food , the booze aint too cheap either but the tea and coffee are reasonably priced , You often get a chance to see films that are not mainstream, its also good place to take a first date really .
