But be warned if you have a guest that doesn't turn up and you leave the ticket at the box office they will resell your ticket, not pass on the money to you and you will end up with some random person sharing your table.

Really beautifully restored art deco cinema that has the comfiest seats! You can get food and wine at your table and there's a good variety of new and old films. Really charming.

Cinema tickets here are cheaper than most cinemas, and yet the seats are more comfortable and have tables. This is a much cooler way to watch the latest films. The bar at the back is well stocked and priced. Worth a visit!
