Movie Theater
“Screen 1 is wonderful. Loads of leg room and comfortable. Other screens much less comfortable. It's the local "independent" cinema.”

“This one's a bit more of a walk, but if you're looking for a British pub with delicious home-cooked foods, this is the place to go. They always have specials, and you can often find mussels and venison in their specials. A bill for two courses with drinks for two people will typically come to around 40 - 50 pounds. It's really close to Fountainpark, which has a cinema, and an arcade with bowling alley (check online for deals as some nights are really cheap!), if you're looking for something to do after dinner. They take both cash and card.”
