Doors and the bar will open at 6pm, with films at 7pm and 9:30pm, except for May 21st, which is part of Good Beer Week. On the 21st, it’s doors at 7pm, and films at 8:30pm and 11pm.

Enjoy these great films in comfort, with your choice of a beanbag or deckchair, and feel free to bing a pillow or blanket to really relax and enjoy the show.

Our screening of The Big Lebowski on May 21st is part of Good Beer Week 2016.

Platinum Liquor and Shenanigans Brewery have created The Dude’s Abide Ale, a special White Russian Imperial Stout which will pair perfectly with our screening of The Big Lebowski. Doors open at 7pm for drinks and chatter before the screening, which commences at 8:30pm sharp.
