A solid mix of independent and foreign releases alongside selected mainstream blockbusters and special events

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.

    Whether or not you give a mouse dropping about 3D (and Disney has done a smashing job on the refit), what a treat it is to see ‘Beauty and the Beast’ again. It was among the studio’s crop of early 1990s hits, but in look and feel harks back to the...

    Sad-eyed and possessed of a rare stillness for stop-motion animation, this Oscar-nominated Swiss-French import beguiles you with its look, especially that of its main character. He’s a little boy named Icare, yet he goes by Courgette, and we’re ...

Love the artsy, alt vibe of this cinema.  From new releases to re-releases and cycling through some of the cult classics, this place has something for everyone.  The fact that it is in an old theatre lends so much character to the place and the staff are extremely friendly.  Only down side is that the screens are smaller than my home cinema...
