I can't really put my finger on what makes this cinema so great, it just is! Sitting down to watch a film here gives me the flutter of excitement in my stomach I used to get going to the cinema as a child. Cheaper than Vue down the road and showing less mainstream films you might never have heard of otherwise, this place is a gem.

It is a bit arty and shows a lot of those hard to get through movies rather than cult classics. Would like to see more of the classics that people my age didn't get to see in the cinema first time round rather than some art house nonsense.
In addition local indie cinema should be showcased here.

Authentic old-fashioned picture house showing both mainstream, vintage and arty and foreigna movies. The foyer is not so commercialised as mainstrem cinemas, and it has a cosy atmosphere
