I always try and buy tickets to see films here (rather than the large cinemas) as its such a lovely experience seeing them here. Its small, so tickets sell out rather quickly.

Treated my partner to see blade runner which was showing here on Sunday as part of BFI sci fi season. Was expecting a small screen but was suprised how big it actually and the fact we got to drink wine and beer ( responsibly ) was such a nice addition. We will definatly return and already check the site every... More

Went here to see bladerunner with my fiancé.he always wanted to see it on a big screen. immediately booked tickets,bit different to other cinemas but gives its originality. cute,small room where the films are played but well worth it! You can buy alcoholic drinks which you can then take in. id recommend coming here if you want something alittle different

Decided to pop in here for a quick lunch as we have been meaning to for a while. Lovely friendly staff, and you can't help but be pleased by the building and setting and the comfy sofas to enjoy your light bite. Had a nice selection of sandwiches which we chose from as well as a few accompanying "nibbles". Place... More

The Old Market Hall (known simply as the OMH to its regulars) is a airy, spacious cafe with great service! There are plenty of couches to lounge on as well as several tables. Their sandwiches are gorgeous and they offer plenty of other refreshments (tea, coffee, fizzy drinks) that are of a great standard. The OMH is tucked up above... More

You can see this historic building in the film "Christmad Carol" (1986). The Old Market Hall was brought back to life 10 years ago. Upstairs was converted into a delightful cafe at one end with a small cinema at the other. Snacks and cakes are available until the evening and drinks can be bought to take in to the cinema....

The seats in the Cinema are very comfortable too far better than your larger Cinemas . The building just creates a great warmly atmosphere. Staff are very friendly and efficient . Some of the...

Oh I love this place! we are local to Shrewsbury and have visited the OMH as both a cineam and somewhere to have lunch. Both are great experiences. This is a small civilised cinema. We have always found the seats to be comfortable and the entire atmostphere very comfortable. They show films you sometimes don't get at the mainstream cinemas.... More

This is a 16th century market hall which was the magistrates court before it's stunning transformation. I love this little cinema with it's comfortable, yes comfortable, seats and cosy viewing experience. It's mostly used by more mature cinema goers like myself who can enjoy a film without having a bucket of popcorn and slurping a drink. The cafe is very... More

Sadly we have not been to see a film here for some considerable time, but it still remains a top place for a tea/coffee and cake etc. We recently met some friends from abroad we had not seen for 17 years !! So meeting in the square under the building was lovely and then some coffee and cake in the... More
