Only downside, no movie-theatre style popcorn! You can buy a bag of prepopped corn like you can at a grocery store but meh, it’s not the same. Lots of drinks. Comfortable seating, great view of the screen.

Great venue - theatres a lot smaller (and classier). The entrance & waiting area reminds me of the old gentlemens smoking room (not that I'd know), but very plush with red velvet comfy chairs everywhere.

Comfortable seats, generous glasses of wine and beautiful decor. That coupled with a good movie, was a great day to spend a rainy afternoon. Tip: you can reverse the front row seats that have recliner footrests for the full relaxing movie experience.

What a great place to watch a current movie in big soft chairs that are well placed so that big heads in front don't get in the way. As pictures reflect this is no ordinary movie theatre. The concessions provide alcoholic beverages, cappuccinos, ice cream...More

This is Hamilton's best cinema complex showing art films and good recent films in a friendly complex. Excellent snacks and wine also served here so a good afternoon or evening possible.
