“Local treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

A true cinema. None of the new fangled shiny surfaces and flashing lights! This is a cinema the way a cinema should be. Great service, unbelievably reasonable prices and a sense of supporting your local treasure.

“A brilliant cinema”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Have been going to this cinema since the early fifties even cleaning it in the late seventies and the present owner who took the gamble to sink so much of his personal money into a complete refurbishment needs to be successful in keeping this magnificent twenties style building going forever. Will support it all the way. Excellent.

“The best cinema”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

I live in yeovil which has a cinema, but because the plaza in Dorchester is a good price and a fantastic venue we always make the trip out there! I would much prefer to support a local business that's been going for years than give my money to the big complex owned cinemas that charge 3x as much for the same film. The plaza is a lovely cinema and I can't recommend enough!!
