A flag ship to community social enterprise projects and a beacon for re-sorting old buildings and re-igniting the spirit of the old cinema experience. Really good value and unique cinema experience. Highlights that sometimes the old ways are the best

Oldest cinema in wales. Opened in 1894. A stunningly beautiful cinema. Small and friendly. If you are in the area go watch a film there. The nicest cinema I have ever visited.

Great local cinema. Renovated since I last visited, and the seats are more comfortable now. A bit pricey for a small cinema but I would rather pay extra and support our local cinema
