What a pleasure it was that reminded us of enjoyable cinema visits of the past and have them recreated. Even down to an interval at half time with delicious ice creams on sale. Everyone seemed to use the waste paper bins provided! A real pleasure and Woodhall Spa is definitely worth a visit.

We went to see "Billy Elliott" live relay from the London theatre, transmitted all around the world on that day, the memorabilia as you enter the cinema is all around you. The seating is very comfortable, and the oldy worldy feel about the surrounding features etc, were unusual , good sound, a very happy day, being somewhere unusual and different.

The Kinema is one of Lincolnshires treasures, a trip back in time, a piece of living history. The staff are really friendly, the foyer is a sight to behold, the prices are very reasonable and it makes an occasion out of seeing a film there also the seats are comfy and there is good legroom. Perfect and well worth the... More

The Kinema is fantastic, it is very cosy and I love that they have an interval! I've been here loads of times and I would much rather go here than I would a Odeon or Empire cinema!

We had been wanting to visit here for a while so we were delighted to combine this with an overnight stay at the delightful Woodall Spa Manor hotel.The Kinema staff were all very friendly and the organist was an unexpected treat in the interva.l

It was like stepping back in time at this brilliant cinema. There was even an interval half way through the film and an organist came up out of the stage and played. A fantastic experience.

Cheaper than the Odeon, this hidden gem is a cultural trip and film trip rolled into one. Beautiful surroundings guide you towards this apparently quite small building sitting within Woodhall Spa's woods. Oce inside you're greeted by old film memorabilia, sure to bring back fond memories and even in teh very young, a fabulus sense of nostalgia that really gears... More

Interesting visit and not big screen as this as a traditional 60's style cinema so less in your face. Very old fashioned and meant to be... Amazingly comfortable seating and coat hooks on the wall to hang your apparel. Box office entry, seats all on one level, small screen behind curtain and interval half way through for comfort break and... More
