It's lovely to keep supporting our little vintage cinemas that are still keeping going! Yes it's dusty here and there but it serves a purpose and serves it well - this all gives it a great atmospheric experience!

This place really needs a good clean, there’s rubbish and food and even mouldy food under the seat. Full of cob Webb’s and the smell of damp and mould is really bad and that is not good for the kids health. It’s not hard to...More

There is a good choice of movies, most of them changes every week. It's very cheap and there is a good program with the recent movies. It's a treasure for our village, I like to go and support it!!!
