Our spaces

The Castle Cinema is made up of three wonderful spaces - Screen 1, Screen 2 and the bar.

This beautiful auditorium has space for 82 bums on 82 comfy armchairs.

The building was originally built as a cinema back in 1913 and we are incredibly lucky to have retained many of its original features. The original proscenium arch takes pride of place with it's ornate plasterwork alongside the beautiful curved ceiling, both of which are highlighted in gold.

The front two rows of seats are removable, providing a larger staging area in front of the screen for guest speakers or intimate performances.

Tech: DCP, DVD, BluRay or HDMI 2k digital projection and 7:1 surround sound.

Originally the projection room, this space has been transformed into an opulent second screen with 27 seats, including six deluxe sofas.

Equipped with 7.1 surround sound and a stunning 4m screen, this intimate screening room oozes luxury and exclusivity.

When the lights go down and the film starts rolling, you’ll forget the outside world exists...

We like big bars and we cannot lie…

Our fabulous bar has space for 82 seated and 120 standing.

We have an array of different seating and various layout options, depending on the occasion. Why not make use of our DJ booth? We’ll get the dance floor ready…

Our fully licensed bar can cater to any event. Compliment your matinee screening with freshly baked pastries and Dark Arts coffee. Or make it a night to remember with our bespoke cocktails, carefully curated wine list and rotating local beers on tap. And of course, there’s always an endless supply of popcorn...
