Great old theatre style cinema. Very large screen. You still get tickets popping out from a turnstile type machine, which are then checked and ripped in half when you enter the main screen room. All tickets really reasonably priced too.

Just like it used to be.Decor mostly 1920s/30s, one large space. Recent films, good sound, remarkably modest prices at £5 per head.Much more atmospheric than a modern multiplex.
