About this event

Occasionally, we turn our modern and comfortable auditorium into a cinema for the evening, showing a selection of films from classics to the latest releases. Our café and licensed bar are open for refreshments during the show.

After 17th May, in line with Government guidelines, we will operate at less than 50% capacity. That means in a large auditorium designed for 300 people, we will fill no more than 120 seats.  This is to ensure your safety and comfort at this time. 


Doors open at 6.30pm
Film starts at 7.30pm

On 21st May we will be showing ‘Red Joan’.

English-born Joan Stanley (Dame Judi Dench), a Soviet and Communist Party sympathizer, becomes employed as a British government civil servant, and gets recruited by the K.G.B. in the mid 1930s. She successfully transfers nuclear bomb secrets to Soviet Russia, which enables them to keep up with the west in the development of atomic weapons, and remains undetected as a spy for over a half a century.


Run time: 1hour+50minutes

Our café will be open for refreshments during the film, including a licensed bar.
