My first time in a long while to this really comfortable cinema. The staff are friendly and helpful and speak perfect English. The foyer chairs are comfy and the cafe area seemed busy while I waited. The production was long (Molière's Le Misanthrope ) with...More

The good bits: super comfortable seating, great seating map, french atmosphere and some special good vibes on the air. The screen is quite big and produces sharp and high quality image. Staff is friendly. The films selection is quite good. The bad bits: audio quality...More

Wonderful afternoon at the cinema, comfortable seating. Friendly staff and other patrons like escaping London for an hour or so. With no £10 buckets of popcorn. Will happily revisit.
