My wife booked this venue for my 40th Birthday and everyone loved it. We had two tables at the front with food for the guests. It is a cosy cinema with a bar at the back and the owners were friendly, welcoming and helpful. You can bring along your own DVDs which look fantastic on their cinema screen. I would... More

A wonderful atmosphere in licensed premises so you can enjoy a drink while watching the film you have chosen to see. A wide range of films shown from different countries and religions. I saw a Japanese Buddhist film a VoIP,e of weeks ago. The local Buddhist group had requested the film and it was very well attended.

I have come here twice now with my partner's family. Great little cinema with a friendly welcoming atmosphere. Both films I have seen here have been great. Highly recommend you come and support this little place if you see something worth watching. Much better experience than going to one of the big commercial cinemas.

A bit run down, but this adds to the atmosphere-excellent acts, felt good to support people starting out and those who have found their niche!
