We come here quite often staff are always friendly and it’s a nice little cinema in the area. Price is excellent and generally a nice atmosphere with all the latest films on

Went to see the Red Swallow tonight with my husband. Although the film wasn't quite my taste, the staff service was excellent. The cinema was cosy, just wish it had been busier.

Came to see Guardians Of The Galaxy, The down stairs is ok, but the rest of the cinema needs BIG Refurbishment big time, gents toilets totally broke and abysmal to say the least, been in all cinema screens and needs deep clean

At £3.00 a ticket this is a great cinema. The interior of the building has been updated well while still retaining lots of its original character. The staff are friendly and the premises are kept very clean. Off street parking is easy to find nearby....More

This is cinema as I knew it from my childhood days. The tickets were tremendous value against the multiplex for the same film. The auditorium was virtually unchanged in format which, as the seats aren't as banked as modern cinema's, the tall person in front...More

So £3 to see a film is an amazing price! Why go elsewhere? Screen 1 is huge and I love that it's a big old style room. There are 3 screens in total. I've been going here for years and they upgraded all the seating...More

There is parking down the side of the cinema (take the street down the side of the bedding centre and turn right) but it's 2 hours max so you might be risking it with a long film. If you don't mind paying to park, the car... More
