Traditional cinema with a small refreshments and tickets stand and a plush velvet feel. Film stops in the middle for an interval complete with ice cream seller! Great experience overall.

Not sure if you had your question answered but I know of young families who do come. Especially for family films. There is an intermission too.

Both Circle and stalls are good. Benefits of the stalls is that's next to the bar! Don't forget there an intermission.

Not sure if you've been as I noted it's some months since you posted this. I've watched live shows at the front which is great but still good views at the rear. It's very good value. They're getting a brand new cinema screen... More
