I attach the photo we saw on the locked door when we came along today 16 August. It doesn’t set the start and finish of the summer closure which is hopeless. Two years ago when we last saw something like this they did at least...More

I have always been a fan of this cinema - it's intimate and shows those films that you really want to see, rather than multiplex blockbusters. It's extremely comfortable too. Treat yourself to a real 'grown up' cinematic experience!

Independent cinema and art. Friendly helpful staff. The short film festival has given me a real taste for this genre. What a great weekend.

Exciting art venue in Plymouth, with great programme and inclusive atmosphere. Always good talks and workshops to attend and a great hub for Plymouth based artists. Cinema is great too, showing independent films, with a nice glass of something from the bar. :)
