Small, independent cinema with a bar and restaurant. Good wide and spacious seating. A broad spectrum of films and live theatre feeds. Smack bang in the middle of town, so no access/parking issues. We are regular visitors here

First visit and will definitely return. Visited the cinema as part of the derby book festival. Lovely seats, plenty of space, very comfy. Staff friendly. Lift to all floors. Cafe downstairs as well. Lovely to sit outside and watch the world go by.
