Easy parking, great seating, comfortable theatres. We love attending the movies at the centre. Pity the HOTA cafe does not provide the same experience.

The cinema shows Art House Movies and we love it. We have a membership and support their enterprise. The theatres also can be hired and once a month ADFAS fill a whole theatre with International speakers presentations
