Cheap cinema tickets but they ask that you buy their food which is reasonably priced so that's only fair. It is very popular so you need to book in advance when a film first comes out.

A superb comfortable old fashioned cinema with good old fashioned prices. Go and see three films here for the price of one at rip off "Vue"! Brilliant and may it long thrive 👍😀

Always helpful and friendly, good films, comfortable and usually easy to park. The ticket price is usually well below that of other local cinemas.

This cinema is a little gem, not only are the tickets a bargain but the staff are really nice and helpful. You can still detect how grand it must have been in its heyday plus it offers special events and showings. I love it. I have to travel to get there but it is well worth it for the nostalgia... More
