It's a beautiful building and shows one or two films a day. Great atmosphere and vibe. Stocked bar. Would highly recommend a visit for a nice quirky cinema experience. Not expensive either!

Lovely old theatre style cinema. We bought our drinks and took them upstairs to our seats. The painted walls of the auditorium were camera worthy. We had a lovely time and enjoyed our evening there.

Took my 6 & 4 year olds for their first cinema experience. They loved it!! No reflection on the film but the cinema it’s self, built 1901 and very well kept. Staff so friendly and helpful. Give it a try!
