Supposedly one of Quentin Tarantino's favourite cinemas, this century-old picture house favours indie and foreign language releases alongside a handful of the bigger mainstream releases. Also home to the odd special event and a cracking little bar.

    Does any of this sound familiar? Two iconic heroes duking it out over two-and-a-half epic hours… Angsty agonising over the collateral damage that ensues… Cameos from multiple costumed crusaders, just to make sure we’re suitably hyped for the next ...
