A luxury take on a big screen experience, expect 48 sumptuous leather armchair seats, nestled between individual tables and classic empire lamps. All seats benefit from their own power and USB points, and the screen benefits from a claret soft deep pile carpet throughout.

A robust and eclectic film schedule includes a whole range of genres, offered across several session packages. For a selection of screenings, paired menu packages are also available in our sister venue The Grand Café, which is housed in the same iconic building. Diners can join us for our Brunch & The Big Screen package for some mid-morning magic, or make a night of it with our classic Dinner & A Movie option.

This very special venue is also available for exclusive hire, making it perfect for truly stand out private events. Check out our “private hire” section for more details on our corporate, wedding and leisure packages.
