It's a great little cinema with some nice old fashion details. A very nice way to spend a few hours with the addition of good food and drinks in the restaurant. Superb !

Okay so really I haven't been to the Abbeygate since 2014 when I lived in Bury St Edmunds. While I was there I saw a movie almost once a week and sometimes twice on a weekend. They had two small cinemas that you could bring...More
