My guess is the cinema is really at the RAF Mount Pleasant?

The SSVC has been around for over 50 years and provides movies for the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force just as the United States does for it’s Military. The U.S. Army, and U.S. Air Force get movies for about 117 theaters around the world through Reel Theaters of the Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES). U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Navy, and U.S Coast Guard for about 40 theaters around the world from the Navy Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR).

In both countries profits go to their Armed Forces Welfare Funds.

At the Phoenix Cinema flicks are shown every evening and on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Movies are repeated every few days for a couple of weeks. Now and then they have an advanced screening.

I noticed CATS & DOGS: THE REVENGE OF KITTY GALORE (rated U) will be released in the UK tommorow (Wenesday) 4 August 2010 and will be shown at the Phoenix Cinema on Sunday 15 August 2010 at 14:00 (2:00pm) & 19:30 (7:30pm). A week and a half that’s not too bad.

If you look at a map, those military and their families are at about the end of the world in the middle of nothing. I would guess the liberty (Navy talk for recreation on time off) isn’t very good. I hope it’s a nice theater!

Seems a bit mean that the general public are not allowed at the cinema, being loyal Brits and all that.
