  • Travelled 50 miles, no longer carry debit card or much cash. Luckily, my partner had his card otherwise couldn't have seen the film we had travelled to see. No tickets in advance so bit of a gamble...  more »
  • The antithesis of the over priced and over loud mainstream cinemas. Friendly good value and a wide range of film, live theat re links and talks.  more »

  • This cinema helps to make Hebden Bridge such a great place to live and visit. Very friendly staff, great selection of films: mainstream, arthouse and international. Very reasonably priced - especially if you take out annual membership. Lovely selection of snacks, hot and cold drinks, licensed. Bus stop nearby and trains less than 10 minutes' walk.
  • Fabulous cinema. Beautiful decor. Great night out.
