Great old fashioned picture house. Probably isnt another the like it. You can get cups of tea or coffee, at the start or half time of the movie, thats when someone plays the organ, also someone comes out selling sweets or ice cream.

Very traditional local cinema - just like the old days. A great experience with good refreshments at good prices. No plastic cups here! Good value in comparison to the big chains.
