The owners certainly got good value for all the money they have spent on the refurbishment. Their efforts have made at "night at movies" a really positive experience again. Who needs Netflix when you can have big screen-big sound-comfy seat and Popcorn.!

Sorry as with all Cinemas we request only food purchases made in our Kiosk are taken into the screens. This helps us prevent unwanted food smells and also contributes to the income of the venue.
