“Cheap and comfy.”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Sometimes its just easier to pop along to the cinema in town. It may be a little run down, but its friendly, tickets are a decent price, the seats are more comfortable than some of the bigger cinemas in the next towns and the queues are smaller. Sometimes we have shared a movie screen with only two others.......... The sweets and drinks are pricey, but its nice to be able to take in a hot chocolate and get comfy, take something warm it also can get chilly !
Plenty of parking behind the cinema in st johns rd and the pay car park, free after 6pm.
Enjoy the movie ............

cheap tickets and bargain priced popcorn - I had the childrens tray which had a drink, popcorn and sweets for £2.50 and it was plenty to see me through the film

“Poor, needs renovating”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

This cinema is one of a chain in Norfolk and Suffolk they are all rather sad places, the decor is poor and ancient. You may pay more aty another cinema but at least the seats won;t be worn out

“A good old fashioned cinema”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

For those who are fed up with travelling to the nearest big town for the nearest multiplex this is a rare treat a local cinema in a small town
It lacks the services/facillities of a multiplex but its somewhere I can walk to, its a bit worn and has a limited refreshments area, but I like it for being local
