This is a great, traditional building with ample seating inside, so is rarely crowded. There is a good counter serving snacks and popcorn and plenty of tourist information brochures in the foyer area. It has comfortable seating and is reasonable priced.

Very good selection of films (though less World Cinema compared to previous years). Great that live Met Opera and National Theatre is broadcast here. Great Hot Chocolate for the interval. Up to date selection of films.
