Great atmosphere. Comfy chairs. We really enjoyed the movie and experience of this cinema. Would recommend. No popcorn but some snacks available. Sound system could do with an update.

A large old theatre, good films and only $12.00 to see big screen films. The owner is a hard case and greets all people and a great host.

Watch movies sitting on couches and rugs if really chilly. Ive never had to use one but they there. Buy your ice cream or lollies sit back and enjoy.

What a nice surprise was this cinema! Very charming screening room with lots of old couches and blankets as well as (old) cinema chairs. And apart from local commercials, no other previews:)

I love taking me kids to the cinema. It is old school but with comfy sofas to sit on and blankets for when it is cold. Such a great atmosphere and reasonably priced too.

This is a lovely old fashioned cinema. Not what you would expect inside. Upstairs it's like a 1950 cinema Downstairs there are 2 and 3 seater couches which makes it rather comfortable viewing of the film your going to watch.

Old cinema with lots of charm. Step back in time. Great night out on a cold night with sofas to curl up on, get there early or book to get the best seats in the house. Friendly staff and not expensive.
