Things haven’t changed too much here besides the inclusion of a hipster bar and a few arm chairs here and there in the lobby. Chunks of foam are still missing from certain seats, the overall quality of the seats are nowhere near the rival cinema...More

Ticket prices are expensive for the type of theatre with such run down seats. The meerkat movie code is only accepted for one ticket. If you are a group of 4 people only one gets free ticket not two.

The venue is well situated amongst restaurants and above a bowling alley. The only criticism is the price of bar food sweets etc and the prices of drinks. Other than that good cinema comfortable seating.

First time at this cinema. Roomy seats and great sound and picture worth the extra. Parking was easy and you can get a discount off your parking ticket

Hi Andrew, We're glad you enjoyed your visit! We are sorry that Ben and Jerry's has gone, but we do now have Marshfield Farm scoop ice cream instead, hopefully you will be back to try it out!
