CHOOSING where to sit in the cinema can be a tricky thing, but the decision is made a lot easier with this theatre in Leeds – because it only has three seats.

The converted London cab is thought to be the smallest cinema in the country and has now been unveiled at Trinity Leeds as part of the 29th Leeds International Film Festival, which begins today and runs until November 19.

Also known as ‘The Tipple Taxi’, the ‘cinema’ has a nearby bar selling coffees and teas in the morning and cocktails in the evening while showing a series of half-hour short films, all on a driving theme.
