Great value for money, at least half the price of larger venues. I booked online (30p per ticket surcharge), but due to small size may be advisable for popular films or times. Lovely small old cinema. Comfortable seating (boosters available for kids). Good choice of...More

The refit is good but one of the chairs I had booked was not useable. Thankfully one of the girls had to cancel, so it was not a problem. Very popular so do book online if you can!
