An 80-seat cinema in an area just on the brink of where London starts melting into something that feels a little more suburban.

It's a cracking little place. It avoids the arthouse trap of feeling snooty or worthy - as the first review mentioned, the staff are really friendly, and that's unusual in these kind of places.

The actual screen is a fairly decent size. But if you don't like being too...more
