Beautiful art deco theatre with a great programme.

I watched Richard Ayoade present a Truffaut movie here once, and also saw an artist showcase in the bar upstairs. Both were great. Seats are comfy, the bar is also great. Best time is in the summer when you can porch out front facing the Windrush Square.more
