This is a pleasant neighborhood three screen cinema in an affluent part of the city which has a very loyal audience and is also enthusiastically supported by the many students in the area... a little gem that still shines!

Great atmosphere at this small cinema. Great value tickets and refreshments. Comfy seats. Easy to park on streets nearby. Screens are small compared to those in the multiplex chains, but doesn't affect my viewing experience. Highly recommend.

What a fabulous cinema-lovely, helpful staff, great prices, great for children (booster seats readily available etc) Really hate having to go anywhere else when there's this beauty here. Plus they sell beer and wine-what more could you want?!

Great choice of films at a good price. Really can't fault it! Only problem is never know what the temperature will be like but most cinemas are like that anyway.

We visited this lovely little gem of a cinema on bank holiday Monday to watch the 'Eddie the Eagle' film. A little bit of 80s nostalgia for us, good film and nostalgic soundtrack. We haven't visited this cinema in quite a while, usually visiting the...More

I love this place. Compared to the BIG cinemas which seem to cost a small fortune these days, you can spend only £3.50 and get a comfy seat. Recently refurbished, it's a gem! Great atmosphere, lovely staff.
