Charming little cinema with a great atmosphere and lovely staff. I particularly love the choice of films, ranging from mainstream to world cinema with some live streaming thrown in for good measure. Always a pleasure to visit.

A great little cinema with great service and excellent staff. I went with my fiancé but would go again with the kids too or as a couple. Not the cheapest but no cinemas are these days.
