“The only cinema to show foreign and more unusual films”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

It's cheap, there's a bar, adjoining free carpark, near railway station and bus stops - and no trailers or adverts to sit through. Only drawback is that the seats aren't too comfortable but this is a minor inconvenience as the quality of films shown here is unmatched in The Potteries.

“Cinema - Old Style”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

This is how a cinema should be.... just like a miniature version of the old ABC in Hanley and with a varied selection of films you wouldn't ever get at the Odeon or Vue.

“Cheap but no very comfortable”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

The tickets are cheap, which is good if you're on a budget. Just don't expect comfy seats, which could be a problem if the film has a long running time. Otherwise, good value for money.

“A lovely independent cinema!”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

Definitely the nicest cinema in Stoke. Great prices, great films and in a great position. Just up from a bus stop and the train station so really accessible for absolutely everybody. Going there is an absolute treat!

“Not the Anorak infested venue that is rumoured.”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

People often describe this place as a place for misanthropes and Trekkies. When really it's a relaxed, friendly and lovely quaint venue. You can hear a pin drop at times which some might find uncomfortable. There are several house rules which everyone abides by which is great. At £5 a ticket for major films that got a limited release you can't go wrong, plus they often show classics for free! Yes FREE!

Great stuff for an appreciator of great film!
