Rude, intimidating un - helpful staff. Poor service you should be ashamed of yourselves. Made out to be lier.

We were staying in the area and decided to see a film. Seats were very comfortable and it was lovely and warm throughout the film not like our local big chain cinema. Would be glad to visit again.
