I was in this theater few times, watching movies (titles you will not find in Odeon) or listening local school orchestra. Theater/cinema is rather small but has positive energy. Also there is gallery with temporary exhibitions. Great place to meet artists.

Had a fantastic night out here watching a show. Nice small auditorium but big enough to make it feel like a real theatre . Look forward to going again for more shows
