Love this venue! Have seen numerous films at this venue. Love the ability to book seats online beforehand. Cinemas are intimate and seating very cosy. Always offer a range of films, with focus on art-house.

Slow service which is a downer when the movie is about to start. Also expensive. Some more investment to match the price and brand please.
