“lovely retro setting for movies and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2012

One of the nicest cinemas I have visited. Go early to pick out your seating especially if in a group. The food is surprisingly good and worth considering having supper there. It can be ordered for hlf time. Setting is retro seating and old cars, lots of fun

“A cinema like no other!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

Such a unique experience, having lived around the world this is definitely something I've never seen before. Awesome atmosphere, no matter what movie you choose to see; comfy seating, take your pick of seats; and delicious half-time homemade cookies and ice cream. A winner every time!

Everything you read about the experience is true. Staff has great attitude and bring off the food and movie experience in a delightul manner. Even had staff show me how to put up the foot rest on my airplane seat.

“Movies with pizza and ice cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

What more can you say. The movies stop for "half time" and your pizza is waiting at the table with a glass of wine and finished off with a brilliant ice cream....
