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
