Puts modern cinemas to shame. Small scale done brilliantly with knowledgable, enthusiastic staff who are welcoming to out of towners. Fantastic that you can take your drinks in with you and relax properly in what feels like an over-sized front room x

When you enter a cinema your first impression is of the authenticity of the ticket man. Does he/she really believe the world of film is dreamlike? Well you are in for a surprise. As once you step inside the REX you have now entered a time machine. One of the oldest projection systems in the world beckoned by a dedicated... More

what fun to go to a small, country cinema and find everything you could wish for.. it is comfortable, it shows really good films, and it has a varied programme which offers a wider choice without all the horror and violence. Long may it flourish!

This is an absolutely fantastic little cinema, everybody's friendly and it has a more personal feel to it than other places. Nostalgia abounds, it all starts when you're given a ticket to up to see the movie in a cozy art-deco hall. Ice cream is served during the adverts, which, if you're lucky, are personalised and very novel. They portray... More

We went to this adorable little cinema as tourists to see The Grand Budapest Hotel which was a very apt film for the place. It's a small cinema, that hasn't been modernised so it's full of charm. It's also run by volunteers so kudos to them. Everyone was so friendly, and when the projectionist saw us taking photos he even... More

Had my first visit here recently and absolutely loved it. This lovely little cinema has friendly helpful staff, comfy seats with heaps of legroom and a real charm. Midweek evening and it was packed out. You can take alcohol into the cinema and in proper glasses -the prices are very reasonable and I will definitely be back!

A lovely old cinema, so friendly which makes a change from the big multiscreen palaces about these days which reek of popcorn and chips. We wouldn't go anywhere else to see a film.

This small independent cinema has some 140 seats and shows the latest films at high quality picture and sound, thanks to its digital installation. The showings are generally at 7.00 pm (best check this) except on a Tuesday when the programme starts at 6.00 - very useful for early-nighters and to visit the excellent fish and chip shop across the...

This is my local cinema, it is independently run by volunteers. The seats are comfy, plenty of leg room and you can take your drink in with you to watch the film. Friendly staff and reasonably priced. Why go anywhere else.
