The Northern Light Cinema
Location: The Malthouse, 13A North End,
The great thing about small independent cinemas is just that, they’re small. And with small comes better service, a better atmosphere and better conversation. So make yourself at home, order yourself a drink to two from the bar and maybe something from the kitchen. Sit back, and relax
