Popular cinema in the middle of Salisbury. Multiple screens so always something to watch. ideally situated if you want to combine the visit with a meal or drink out. Sound quality not always spot on but on the occasion I complained, I was given an immediate apology and refund. hasn't stopped me and the family's going since.

Lovely place. Very friendly atmosphere. Think it's brilliant making a beautiful building into a cinema. Plenty of room not cramped like some!

Amazing old building, buying a ticket is like entering a tudor museum. Sadly the cinematic experience is often poor, sound in the largest screen room is not good. I imagine the limitations of fitting a cinema into this venue come at a cost. However I would think children would enjoy watching beneath the iron chandeliers and their ears are better!

Totally over-priced for the size of the screens; tickets and food. If there is another cinema available to you then go to the other one.

We have never been to a cinema like this before. It must be the most covert Odeon in the country. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, usual overpriced confectionary, but that's all part of the modern cinema experience. Its real selling point is to find a cinema in a building as old as this. You can smell the centuries... More

We were given the very best service at this cinema on a recent visit! Initially, when we visited to buy our tickets, we were greeted in a very friendly way by the lady on the ticket desk and the Manager came to discuss with us the practical details of our visit regarding a wheelchair user. On the evening of our... More

The cinema has a great old-times feel to it, but it is quite small. The seats are reasonably comfortable, the staff were very pleasant and the screening was on time (following the obligatory 20+ minutes of trailers)

People are puzzled when you explain the cinema in Salisbury is really interesting but as you step into what was originally a house and has been in its history a shop and a pub - passing through a hall with fireplace and stained glass before getting to the current cinema box office - the comment starts to make sense. The... More

Went here to am NT live showing when visiting the city. Just the same sort of audience as at home for such events - preponderantly middle aged and conservatively middle class. It was like climbing Everest (or so I imagined) getting up to the back row of screen 1. The décor and seating was so like my recollection of cinemas... More
