This is our local cinema. Nothing out of the ordinary. Relatively comfortable with reasonable facilities. Why do they have to charge so much for sweets and drinks. Cost of taking our grandchildren is ridiculous. If they want to encourage regular cinema going surely attract the...More

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.

I liked this cinema because it seemed just about the right size. The screen fine. Nice to not be in a warehouse of a place for a change. The seats were comfy. Looked like nice snacks and drinks on offer.
