this needs a book about it - it is just superb. We went for the film festival, which Mark Kermode runs every year. A wonderful time was had by all in the best most stylish cinema in the world!

yes yes yes: there's puffins and otters and basking sharks, but there's also an arts venue that is world class. Hosting musicians and film makers and authors... Shetland is a hidden gem... go.

Ive been here a small number of times now to watch a cinema film with both friends and family and enjoyed my experience each time. The screen is perfect, the chairs are comfortable and spacious and the volume isn't overpowering. I would prefer an usher to assist you to your seat when its dark as its quite dangerous and time consuming otherwise.
