News & Offers

A cinema too? They kept that quiet!

A cinema too? They kept that quiet!

Cell B joins a growing movement of independent cinemas.

Please persevere with this Natter, because once you’ve got past me indulging myself with poor quality Dad-jokes, you’ll find that Cell B hostel in Blaenau Ffestiniog is charming a fascinating.

Cell B in is an arresting proposition. You’re a guaranteed a warm ‘Hello, hello, hello’. Save up your coppers and treat yourself to a night in the cells. 

*Sigh* I can’t keep this up! Let’s start again. 

The reason for this cascade of dreadful puns is because  Blaenau Ffestiniog’s converted historic Edwardian police house is the home of the Cell B hostel. Its quite the building! As well as having space for a comfortable and funky modern hostel with all the facilities you’d expect, it also has space for a restaurant and, wait for it, a cinema! Playing a bang-up-to-the-minute selection of films,  they’re leading a trend of small, independent cinemas of quirky character. If you’ve come down from the mountains (and secured your bike in their intimidating old cell bike store) or if the weather has proved just a bit too much, then you can catch a film in the most convivial of surroundings.

 I’d recommend a quick trip to their website to taste their particular sense of style and you can book there too.
