Lovely, cosy theater. The couches are brilliant - comfy and perfect size with someone you know, might be a bit close with a stranger! Great selection of snacks and drinks.

We visit for a treat if there is a good movie showing. Always book ahead as this is such popular place. Good coffee, snacks, and comfortable small theatres always make for a delightful outing.
