What a delight from the personal service by phone for bookings to having your food platter delivered mid- movie! Wonderfully warm staff, variety of refreshments and intimate theatre with reclining seats - cosy, quirky and sophisticated. Definitely on our ski trip agenda for next year!

It was like stepping back in time visiting Ruby's what a great concept. We loved how glam the cinema feels and the staff were very friendly. Great experience, can't wait to go back one day.

Went to wonder women on a Tuesday night at 8, great atmosphere as you walk into the reception, friendly staff, very cool small intimate theatre with comfy seats with heaps of room, snacks a bit pricey but similar to most movie theatres

The atmosphere in this small, intimate 'Hollywood' style theatre is absolutely fabulous. A "snug' that has huge cosy armchairs that recline or the larger cinema with spacious seats and blankets if you want to cosy up in them. Drinks can be ordered to be delivered...More
