Waited for almost half century to visit this amazing place - without doubt the finest cinema experience that can be had. The screening of the Imitation Game (breaking the Enigma Code) was wholly appropriate in an area famous for its wartime importance. Remarkably good prices for tickets and the intermission gave us time for good value refreshments. Comfortable seats and... More

Despite being further to go to the Kinema than to a multiplex, this is our cinema of choice. Almost everything about this delightful cinema is to be recommended - the glitter ball and organ in the intermission, refreshments, trompe-l'œil decor, cinematic collections - even getting a "proper" ticket! All tremendous fun and makes a simple trip to watch a film... More

I love this cinema, this is where I take my children to see the current movies. It's very traditional, it's much cheaper than these new multi screen places and you get a break half way through the film to buy ice cream....what more could you possibly want or need? The sweets and pop corn are reasonably priced too. They have... More

This is my third visit to this beautiful, nostalgic, comfortable and intimate cinema which doubles up as a museum to film. From the plush red velour seats, to the organ and piano playing, the intermission half way through and decor, going to Kinema in the Woods is a treat and also a great place to take visitors as a wet...

What is there not to like. It brings the cinema to our doorstep with nostalgia by the bucket full. At the interval the little man pops up and plays the organ as an extra bonus !

I was surprised at the quality of the screening. It was HD and crystal clear. The sound was excellent. Definitely using modern gear. The rest of the place is a step back in time. But don't expect anything musty. The place is clean, very well cared for, and is a great experience, especially when paired with the Teahouse in the... More

The Kinema is one of only a few remains back projection film theatres left. Watching a film In the original theatre is a must. The Kinema still takes a break halfway through the film for a refreshment interval. During the break Alan Underwood a local proprietor plays old time tunes on an old organ which rises up from the stage.... More

A trip back in time, a lovely cinema, clean and an enjoyable experience. We watched a film that was new out and enjoyed it thoroughly. Plenty of choice for drinks and snacks, including lovely milkshakes. Interval halfway through film for toilet and refreshments. Ideal way to spend an afternoon. Will definitely return when coming back to the area.
