The theatre is well established with comfortable seating. We saw RETURN to the FORBIDDEN PLANET. What a great show. Amazing and talented cast. Loved the whole experience. If you enjoy the theatre you will enjoy this venue.

Super thriller. It left both my wife and I asking ourselves how just three actors could keep an audience in suspense right to the end and after the last curtain call? Fantastic Anthony Horowitz, Thank you.
