The cinema was slightly dated although staff were friendly. The place didn't take credit card which caused some problems. The movie was good as they have a selection of lollies, ice cream, popcorn and other food. They also have a few arcade games downstairs. Can...More

This Cinema is very dated. It needs a major make over, painting, carpet new seats, new screens. The downstairs cinema with only 12 seats is a complete waste of time. Feels like your in a dungeon. Not impressed.

Great place to catch a movie on a night you don't have much planned. Staff are nice and friendly and tickets are reasonably priced.
