Awesome live music venue, very comfy with couches and seats. Was pretty empty, which was a shame. Staff were lovely. Not a huge drink selection, and pretty pricey, but a good relaxed atmosphere.

This beautiful old theatre has recently been taken on by new owners and in a short time what a difference they have made. Great tapas accompanied by sangria and a relaxed atmosphere. Just the place to visit for a whole range of entertainment and food....More

This theatre is a classic. Movies 7 days a week and live music some weekends. Great cafe at the front spilling onto the street. Inside the theatre is a small bar. The theatre itself has comfy couches for movie watching.
