Charming little cinema with a great atmosphere and lovely staff. I particularly love the choice of films, ranging from mainstream to world cinema with some live streaming thrown in for good measure. Always a pleasure to visit.

Oh my goodness, what a treat. Coming from a city with big multiplex cinemas this was a breath of fresh air. Reasonably priced (including refreshments!), pretty comfy seating, lots of showing times, got parked for free outside in the evening. Would love to go again
