This is a really quaint old style cinema with the attraction of a bar to one side. They put on films as well as plays and live music. On this visit I watched a live cinema screening of Billy Elliott from the West End. Really worth a visit and an asset to Penistone.

what a great place to visit and feel like you are a kid again. We brought the kids, there was an interval and you can get a coffee/beer if want. Love this place.

Penistone Paramount Cinema is a lovely little cinema. There is an intermission between the film being shown, where you can have a drink at the bar, alcohol or coffee. There are also snacks and drinks you can purchase, before and at the interval. There is also an icecream lady who comes out at the interval upstairs and down. Lovely cinema.... More

If you remember the cinema with the velvet tip up seats and an interval, then the Paramount is a must to visit! It has all the things you will remember from your childhood: an upstairs circle, ice cream usherette and even an interval. A delightful place to visit.

I have been here several times and it is always my first choice for seeing a film. The staff are friendly and tickets can be booked in advance at the booking office or online, although no reserved seating for the cinema. However, I seem to remember that there is reserved seating for shows, concerts etc. There's a half time interval... More

Love this place. Traditional Cinema (and theatre) with history and character. Intermission during the films, for a visit to the bar.

A lovely cinema with so much character. Very enjoyable to visit during the day or on the night. I just wish I lived closer so that it could be my local cinema.
