This cinema has a lovely feel, unlike others which are a lot of the time style over substance. The ticket prices are half that of other cinemas with no compromise on quality. I would wholeheartedly recommend a visit.

We love this cinema. It’s how cinemas should be. Warm and welcoming and not too big. The staff are great and the prices are even greater. We’d choose this over the Vue and Showcase any day.
