A good old fashioned cinema. Originally the old town hall, it sits above a bookshop with two screens. The larger (screen 1) has a balcony and 403 seats, whilst screen 2, much smaller with 76 seats, has a list of the Mayors of the town on the back wall, still left over from its days as a town hall. Pictures of classic film stars hang on the walls, and in the entrance stairway pictures of Laurel and Hardy and Charlie Chaplin are on display. There is a traditional box office, with a small ticket off a roll, which is torn by the steward a whole three foot walk away.
In short it is a quaint little cinema, still going despite competition from a modern multiplex a few miles up the road. Both screens are equipped with digital projection and screen 1 has retained a FP20 35mm projector.
