Went to the Labyrinth masquerade ball, it was wonderful, our host was funny and everyone was dressed up and a real fan. Made a night at the cinema feel like an actual night out! Lovely environment, am looking forward to more showings there in future

It's many years since I was last in this cinema. Nothing much had changed when we visited last Saturday . It is charmingly scruffy. Downstairs is a small bar with a helpful , well informed barman who takes pleasure in finding what his customers want...More
