A delightful cinema with 3 screens, one a luxury lounge with arm chairs and licenced bar. Friendly enthusiastic staff who can't do enough to please. Showing current releases, great value for money. Who'd want to go to a multiplex after being here?

We visited the cinema for the 20.50 performance. We were greeted by a smiling girl who looked up our booking and issued our tickets. The outside of the cinema is very scruffy and we were a little hesitant on entering. The foyer was very retro, cafe styled with the screens leading off up stairs from different sides. Our screen was... More

Screens are great and the sound awesome.. Lovely friendly staff and great value for money I don't know any other cinema that charges £4.99 per adult. The only thing we were unhappy about was the cleanliness! It's was awful... The seats were caked in dirt/dust the floor sticky and the ladies toilets had a strong smell of ammonia and the... More

I loved our visit to this cinema. We went to see the Hobbit and I could not believe how cheap the tickets were - 2 for under a tenner on a Saturday afternoon. The cinema was quirky and the theatre small but I really liked it. The chairs were the old style which lean back and give you leg space.... More

Little but large. Catering for all across the years. Hunger Games episode 3 part 1 is my next trip. I hope to see you there.

A real olde worlde cinema. Ticket prices are very low but refreshments just as extortionate as anywhere else. The screen we were in allowed bar drinks which was nice. There were also tables and leather settees and armchairs. LOADS of legroom. Clean toilets. Oh, the film was okay too!

You will often have the cinema almost, if not completely to yourself. I have never seen it full though I don't go in the Summer, when the prices are higher. They run £2.99 deals and the Movie Magic card, if you are local or live in the South West is well worth the money. Staff are super friendly too. The... More

Cinema feels pretty 'worn' and is clearly old style. Only 2 others in cinema when I was there on a Saturday night in September, which was actually quite nice and enabled me to 'immerse' myself in the movie with no distractions and no-one sitting in front of me. Good to have this in Ilfracombe, but seats getting very worn.

We loved this cinema. Visited on weds 24th September to see Pride - great film! It was like stepping back in time to the plush red seats and the swish of the curtain opening. Friendly staff who appeared to know most of the customers. A lovely experience. Thanks
