Visited this real gem of a cinema during a short stay in Ilfracombe, and wished we had this wonderful attraction in our town. Pre booked tickets online to watch Bad neighbors. On entering the venue the staff met us with warm and welcoming smiles, genuine, not the false 'have a nice day through gritted teeth' types of smile! A credit... More

Staff are so friendly. Screens are big and prices are low. What more can u ask for . You can also join the cinema rewards club if u intend to go regular throughout the year. You then get a discount on your tickets every time u go

Tiny cinema so we were expecting an oldie type screen. Amazed when we walked into a small room with individual lounge type leather chairs and tables. Only about 20 of us all families for an afternoon showing with drinks and treats. Excellent value.

Ilfracombe is sooooo lucky to have this lovely cinema right on the high street! It is small but charming and comfy seats. Screen 7 has fabulous seats with little tables and everything! The price for a film is stupendously cheap so we always buy food and drink to give them a profit. This place must stay open!

The manager came to my rescue when I found the entrance of the cinema had a few steps I would be unable to surmount with my mobility scooter. No matter, the manager showed us which door to go to where he met us with his trusty ramp so that I could drive straight into the theatre, up the aisle and... More

Fabulous cosy cinema All the best new releases on Cheap admission price too My only concern is how quiet it was on a friday night. Worried that it will close if not enough people go regularly. We will definitely go again

A great independent cinema with small intimate screens. Screen 7 with its leather seats and masses of leg room is very impressive. Some parts of the building are showing their age, but all the projection and sound equipment is first class. There is a nice bar area so you can have a drink before the film starts and the whole...

What a gem - a Cinema on the High Street not out of town! Joined the local Film Club, met new friends and have seen all sorts of films I wouldn't normally watch - as licensed we can even have a drink afterwards

A small cinema with plenty of choice. Open early afternoon to late evening with a very varied choice of films in several screens. They offer a merlin cinema club membership which allows a discount for every visit during the year. Get watching!
