Great cinema, variety of choice in bar with snack, can have a beer for £2.50 and there's a sofa to sit on! Great!

Called in to watch the latest Jason Bourne film. I love this place, it's old but very personal and welcoming with friendly polite staff . The picture quality and sound system are second to none .
