Relaxing, friendly - nice food and drink offer including a bottle of wine in an ice bucket at your seat if you choose a sofa. I personally like the standard seats they are wide and comfy.

This cinema has been restored so brilliantly. It's a lovely mix of 1920's with modern touches. I love being able to take coffee and cake into the film and I get to watch such a mix of films.
