"A smashing wee cinema - better than some mainland picture houses"

Summary review by JJ

A lovely little cinema situated to the rear of the victorian Winter Gardens building (Discovery Centre) with somewhere around 80-100 seats (I didn't count them!) which can be reserved in advance. Small hatch serving fresh popcorn, drinks and snacks - just like the old days before the multiplexes arrived. There's only one film showing per day, with blockbusters changing every week or two - but they are on the ball with new releases and tend to stick with more family friendly titles. Perfect for a rainy day.
