Love the quirky seating in The Box auditorium, but as it is so small and the ceiling is low, could do with some air conditioning this weather.

Small, independent cinema with a bar and restaurant. Good wide and spacious seating. A broad spectrum of films and live theatre feeds. Smack bang in the middle of town, so no access/parking issues. We are regular visitors here

First visit and will definitely return. Visited the cinema as part of the derby book festival. Lovely seats, plenty of space, very comfy. Staff friendly. Lift to all floors. Cafe downstairs as well. Lovely to sit outside and watch the world go by.

Hello - Cinema 1 aka The Sir John Hurt Cinema is our largest screen, this cinema holds 237 people. Cinema 2 holds 160 and The Box is slightly smaller, with seats for 60 people. Hope that helps!
