Old style Treat

After 20 years still my favourite film theatre. Old fashioned, no AC, tuck shop without toxic popcorn! Reasonably priced. Shows real films. We are so lucky! Thank you.

The innovation of relaying a live performance from the RSC to venues elsewhere like Stamford, is certainly interesting but not, in my view, ultimately rewarding. The satellite signal bringing us Othello failed on several occasions, each interrupting crucial elements of both speech and image, thus breaking the feeling of intimacy and immediacy that the big screen had encouraged.

This venue has a theatre as well as being used for artists to show off their paintings, sculptures etc. The theatre is spacious and comfortable, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The building also contains a cafe, bar and the Tourist Information Centre. I love going to see plays at this venue.

The arts centre has a varied set of events over the year covering everything from Orchestral to folk music. They have up and coming comedians and some brilliant plays as well as a great cinema programme. I'm a member and its well worth the membership. I also attend the Craft classes on a Saturday morning so there really is something... More

I visited Stamford Arts Centre yesterday to book tickets for the local Burghley Proms/classical concert. As always, the staff were polite, kind and helpful. Just one small problem with the seating in the cinema at the Arts Centre (which we use regularly) - the seats can be uncomfortable to sit in for a long time as they offer very little... More

The Arts Centre is a wonderful asset for Stamford - the cinema shows films about 6 weeks after they have finished viewing in the big cinemas and is also used for NT live Shows as well as cultural and historic talks. The adjoining assembly rooms are also used regularly for markets, shows and talks. It is worth becoming a member... More

We recently spent some time at the arts centre for the open day. We have visited before to see pantomimes, which have all been good. Today was great, albeit rather busy with many families and children around. Be prepared to wait for certain things such as face painting. Overall well recommended for families.

My partner and I went to the cinema after dinner, so nice to be in the town centre. The choice is not as new as the big cinemas but that didn't bother us. As a result, much cheaper too. Staff were extremely friendly and polite. The theatre was beautiful and full of character. The only bad point was the shortage... More

Took my wife and mother-in-law to Stamford Arts Centre to see a play. All seats had a great view. The acting was superb and we really enjoyed the play. They have a cafeteria for snacks and coffee, and ice cream at half time.
