“not the usual multiscreen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2012

The films you missed first time round, a foreign language programme and the latest art house releases in an central location. No slot machines/popcorn/rustling sweetie bags/hot dogs. Good wholesome food in the cafe with interesting vegetarian options. An oasis in the city.

“Refreshing change to chain cinemas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

So nice not to be sat next to teenagers playing with their phones and throwing popcorn. Plenty of space, great atmosphere. Also enjoyed the film "Even the Rain" very much. Wish we didn't live hundreds of miles away.
