You'd never know it was a cinema from the outside. Housed in a Victorian Lecture Hall and with just a discreet blackboard announcing What's On and Coming Soon it gives little away. Step inside and it's a buzzy cafe serving delicious homemade cakes and coffees as well as hearty soups and beers and wine. Last night I went to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and it did not disappoint. It was very faithful to the book and has an excellent cast. The next few weeks promise many more cinematic treats with The Iron Lady, Carnage, The Artist (with irresistible Uggy the dog) and The War Horse amongst the films on offer. My sons prefer the neon lights and popcorn at the Odeon in Maidstone but we oldies prefer the more sedate comfort of the Kino with a glass of Merlot in hand. So civilised.
