I was in this theater few times, watching movies (titles you will not find in Odeon) or listening local school orchestra. Theater/cinema is rather small but has positive energy. Also there is gallery with temporary exhibitions. Great place to meet artists.

Have been to the main theatre about three times. With a capacity of nearly 290, it is sufficiently spacious, yet feels cosy and has a great atmosphere. The café is open late on performance nights, and the bar, which opens during the intermission, sells hot...More
