I love taking me kids to the cinema. It is old school but with comfy sofas to sit on and blankets for when it is cold. Such a great atmosphere and reasonably priced too.

This is a lovely old fashioned cinema. Not what you would expect inside. Upstairs it's like a 1950 cinema Downstairs there are 2 and 3 seater couches which makes it rather comfortable viewing of the film your going to watch.

Old cinema with lots of charm. Step back in time. Great night out on a cold night with sofas to curl up on, get there early or book to get the best seats in the house. Friendly staff and not expensive.

A very old cinema with cozy couches that's been around for almost 100 years. They even provide blankets in case you are cold. Popcorn available . Fair size screen.
