Loved this artsy movie house. Single theater. Kinda reminded me of the places in Chicago and NYC. Nice wide aisles and rows along with plush seats. Each seat has a little table next to it. You are also allowed to bring in wine and beers among other drinks. Very nice atmosphere. Very retro.

Great place to bring friends and family. more

The Gate has been my favourite for as long as I can think, it has a good programme of independent and interesting films. It used to be part of a very small chain of small cinemas, then a slightly larger one as part of Picturehouse. So... more
