Double feature logo FINAL

Double Feature: Brand New To Cinema

We'd love for you to get more from the film programme and always encourage our audiences to engage with something new and totally different from their usual taste or genre. While we try to keep things relatively cheap and cheerful, we know indulging in your cinema habit is not always the kindest to your wallet (or purse). Therefore, we're delighted to give you a great ticket offer for our cinema - Double Feature.
