One screen, stalls & circle. Reasonable prices.Up to date films. Lots of live streaming of opera, ballet, plays. Some local events and pantomime. Get there early. Sometimes long queues for tickets. Cinema as it used to be and as it should be.

A real gem for Wellington, ok the screen and sound aren’t the greatest but having a facility like that in the doorstep is great. Must be supported by all in the area to remain open!!

Always enjoy going here, reminds me of childhood visits to cinemas, nicer than the modern ones, the only down side is that it can be cold in there
