Great multi-screen but old fashioned cinema, with a licensed bar and a little coffee shop in the foyer aswell as a good selection of typical cinema fayre. Reasonably priced tickets too.

Great little place, far better experience than the big modern complexes. Lovely staff, building in need of a bit of attention but would hate for it to become too modernised. Fabulous "old fashioned" cinema experience. Loved it and would definitely recommend.

Spent a rainy afternoon here. Loved the old fashioned cinema, took me back to my youth. No air con but who cares? It had old red velour seats and an usher helping you to your seat. Great place to while away a few hours.

We went to the cinema and were greeted by friendly staff. The fella who took us to our seats was accommodating and even asked how the film was after. The cinema was comfy and compact. Very reasonable. One screen had cosy double seats.

Popped in during the rain to watch the inbetweeners movie, great sound and picture and nice not to sit in a large showcase/odeon environment, well worth watching a movie here if on holiday.
