“A luxury take on a big screen experience, expect sumptuous claret leather armchair seats, nestled between individual tables and classic empire lamps. Go all out and opt for one of our sofas, and enjoy an elevated view and a larger table. Don’t forget to look up, where you will find an elaborate ceiling and cornice detail inspired by Glasgow’s old Art Deco cinemas.

“With just two screens, you can expect to find the antidote to “multi-plex cinema” right here on Ashton Lane. With a focus on a roster of movies as diverse as our community, we will also be set to offer a robust and jam-packed diary of special screenings and events.

“If you feel like a little “tipple before the trailers” or a bite to eat, we’ve got that covered too, with a food and drinks menu full of proper hotdogs, pinots and pint-sized cocktails in cans.

“If you feel like a little refreshment just before the lights go down, our Usherettes will be visiting the screen with a selection of sweet treats and ice creams.”
