Old Cinema Launderette is a functional launderette by day. By night (usually at weekends) it's a bar and music venue. By day wash your smalls in our machines and by night have a bottle of real ale and watch fantastic music.

Easy free parking outside the door and staff helped my carry the loads of washing in. When I returned 4 hours later my washing was ready, beautifully folded in neat piles and again I was helped to my car.

My wife and I brought our laundry here a couple of times whilst holidaying in Durham. The staff are lovely and they make a very decent coffee - I had absolutely no idea it is a music venue at night!!
