Sold Out Films – Try the Raffle!

For all performances we hold back some house seats for emergencies.
When we are happy that we don’t need these seats we put them in the raffle.
Names can be put down for the raffle 15 minutes before the performance time (before matinées and evening screenings).
Names are drawn out of a hat at random. We try our best to get everyone seated so it’s always worth a try if travel is not an issue.
All popular titles will return in future months.


Although we do not plan on having specific parent and baby screenings – the building is too big and dark to advertise these, you are always welcome to bring babies to U, PG and 12A rated matinées.

We have programmed some earlier matinees from 12.30pm so parents are able to get back for the school run etc.

Buggies can be left in the foyer during the film and babies must be held in the screen, disruptive babies should be taken out of the screen until they are settled but if this is due to the film being too loud a member of staff can contact the projectionist and adjust this.
