Lovely traditional cinema. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Love the national anthem. Food & cinema tickets are reasonable prices (milkshakes are delicious). Would highly recommend this place if you prefer the personal touch.

Quaint old fashioned cinema. Great value compared to the soulless multiplexes, and the tuck shop is even cheaper! Following the national anthem, the adverts and trailers are followed by an intermission with the traditional ice cream seller on hand. Dolby Digital screen and sound (...More
