Saw 2 films during our short stay, and both were great. Its really atmospheric, seats are comfortable and prices very reasonable. We paid the £1 extra and sat in the balcony section, front row, and picture and sound were excellent. A great night out

This is an amazing cinema! Tickets are really good value. There is a bar and ice creams. What more could you ask for! Not enough people there thought, so please support them!
