A nice independent cinema with a friendly, cosy feel. The staff are friendly and helpful and the cinema building itself and décor is fantastic. Much more pleasant than the commercialised larger cinemas, it has real character.

Love the good old comfort of cinema seating like it was in the 50s and 60s! The cinema needs the revenue from children's films, but they manage to get most block busters in good time, and even host a good film club. Well done Peter and Michael.

There is no comparison between the Royal Cinema and a multiplex. A warm welcome, comfortable seats, reasonably priced tickets and refreshments. Easy parking close by. Since going to the Royal I no longer go to any other cinema, the atmosphere just isn't the same.

For a trip down memory lane, you can't beat the Royal cinema. A huge auditorium, showing one film only, incredibly good value and run by people who really care abut film. The latest projection facilities mean that the film is crisp and top quality viewing. Fab little local cinema.
