Cinema returning February 2021
Thanks to the relaxation of restrictions and new release movies coming out late January I will be reinstating the cinema in February. So, pencil in Saturday 13 February 8pm for opening night. Since it will be Valentine weekend for those who celebrate why not make it a date night and organise dinner prior to the movie. Restrictions will be announced closer to the date as these are changing regularly.
