A comfortable alternative to the cavernous, soulless multiplexes in the city, The Grosvenor is more like a private viewing cinema. The two small screening rooms are fitted out with huge leather armchairs and there’s loads of leg room. If you fancy stretching out or snuggling up, book one of the leather couches at the back. They’re a bit dearer than the other seats, but it’s worth paying the extra if you can get one.
I like the fact you can take drinks from the bar next door into the cinema with you. Very civilised.
Films shown are a mix of the latest blockbusters, old classics and cult movies. There are usually four or five daily screenings of the main films. Check the website for details.
Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, at 10.30, they run ‘Watch With Baby’ screenings for parents with children under 18 months. Cost is £5 and includes free tea and coffee and a 20% discount in The Loft restaurant upstairs.
