Went to see Iron Man 3 today. FREAKING FANTAStIC!

The cinema has had a re-vamp on the seats, lots of space, comfort and adjustable cup holders. The screen is a great size and sound quality is fantastic for a small venue.

The owners and staff are welcoming, friendly and the place has a great atmosphere.

Everything is at great value and cannot wait to watch the next film!

So nice to see this small theatre still open. And to be showing a film I hadn't seen in the "big city". Small town friendly with small town prices. New seats and excellent projection and classic movie popcorn. What more could you ask for.

If you are looking for a theatre with all the bells and whistles, this is not it. It is a small community cinema that is a little outdated. That said, we love it. Its a great place to see movies as a family. i love that we can choose between 3d and non 3D shows, and the local flavour to the advertising and posters in the theatre. Staff are friendly and popcorn is good. Screen is a good size and seats are scomfortable.

You just have to view a film in this quaint and old-fashioned theatre. Okay the seats are not that comfy but heck, take a cushion or roll up your jacket and voila! Where else can you see a current movie on a wide screen and have the place practically to yourself? Well, I'd hate to think that the business is hurting and on occasion, like when I went to see the Life of Pi, the theatre was quite filled. The staff is friendly and make efforts to bring in patrons by having quirky events such as Pyjama night. Viewers come to the theatre wearing their pyjamas and prizes are offered for the most creative pjs. Lots of fun. The popcorn machine always works and the people who dish it out are awesome. I can't wait to get back there and view another film.

Well, saw Hunger Games here and it was excellent especially now that there is a digital picture and sound system. It is far superior to the old equipment although the seats could use some work (last time one of the armrests fell off and as far as comfort, forget that).

The staff are always very friendly, especially the ticket-seller (who wasn't there by the time she arrived - I assume she's also the projectionist). My one complaint is that the popcorn butter(?) is the worst! Good topping for popcorn generates significantly more repeat sales, so there's no reason to have crap in a small community.

But overall, it's great to have a local cinema.
