Movie Reviews
There are many movie reviewers out there, some good, some not so good. In our opinion, the only review that matters is the one YOU give to the movie you've just seen. Here's a piece of advice, choose a single reviewer and stick with their reviews, that way you have consistency of review. Our favourite is a lady who's been in the review business for over 25 years, take a look at her reviews at 
Looking for the next big thing in cinema? Here it is. High Frame Rate. Over the last few years you've seen 3D and digital 2D, all very high quality and all at the traditional 24 frames per second. To make the images even more stunning, Peter Jackson shot THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF FIVE ARMIES in 48 frames per second 3D. It's like looking at a postcard that comes to life, the clarity is stunning, the colour is magic. We are one of a select group of cinemas globally which offer HFR 3D, check our schedules for sessions and experience the outstanding visual quality provided.
