It’s old, a little run down but it’s an independent in a world of large corporate giants. Cheap, cheerful and fun. Sweets and drinks available, all reasonably priced.

There is a good choice of movies, most of them changes every week. It's very cheap and there is a good program with the recent movies. It's a treasure for our village, I like to go and support it!!!
