What a lovely place to see movies. An old place but it costs us pensioners only $10 to see a film. In winter if it's a little cold, there are blankets to wrap ourselves in.

Nothing extraordinary from the outside. We were there on a Thursday and it's not open for business unfortunately. It's only open on weekends and Wednesdays.

Great atmosphere. Comfy chairs. We really enjoyed the movie and experience of this cinema. Would recommend. No popcorn but some snacks available. Sound system could do with an update.

A large old theatre, good films and only $12.00 to see big screen films. The owner is a hard case and greets all people and a great host.

Watch movies sitting on couches and rugs if really chilly. Ive never had to use one but they there. Buy your ice cream or lollies sit back and enjoy.

What a nice surprise was this cinema! Very charming screening room with lots of old couches and blankets as well as (old) cinema chairs. And apart from local commercials, no other previews:)

I love taking me kids to the cinema. It is old school but with comfy sofas to sit on and blankets for when it is cold. Such a great atmosphere and reasonably priced too.
