    Arrived at the cinema to buy our tickets and snacks just after 8pm for the movie Dune. I had put the booking under my full name, Patricia 🤦 and the lovely cashier remembered talking to me on the phone.
    Earlier, we talked about my partner and I going for dinner at Little High and then we'd come across the road to the cinema. She said to enjoy our dinner and that she'd see us later on.
    I hope you and your co-worker enjoyed the giggles as much as we did! Thank you (my apologies for forgetting your name) for an engaging conversation and a brilliant end to the night.

    This theater complex is fabulous - my friend and I think we " own " the seats at the back! Movie times are always at convenient times - staff are FABULOUS and parking in not a problem!

    Lovely cinema tucked into the corner of the Arts Centre, with friendly helpful staff and plush decor.

    Movie was fine, seats were comfy, food was really average (impossible to eat the pulled pork roll in the dark with out it being a REALLY messy experience) - and there is nowhere to sit and eat except inside the movie theater. So as first-timers were a bit surprised by the whole experience - I guess I was expecting something more like the Embassy in WLG where you can choose to eat before the movie (at normal tables & chairs) if you wish. Live & learn !!
