We've been watching films here for many years and it's always been a delight. No popcorn, no adverts, no extras - just the film you've chosen to see, with good projection and sound quality in very comfortable surroundings. A pre-film coffee or drink is reasonably...More

It's cheap, there's a bar, adjoining free carpark, near railway station and bus stops - and no trailers or adverts to sit through. Only drawback is that the seats aren't too comfortable but this is a minor inconvenience as the quality of films shown here...More

This is how a cinema should be.... just like a miniature version of the old ABC in Hanley and with a varied selection of films you wouldn't ever get at the Odeon or Vue.
