“Old world charm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

This cinema is located at the top of the hill in Lyme Regis and is very near to the gardens. So you could have a lovely picnic in the gardens and then pop into the cinema to catch a film. It is a very old and quirky building and one of the best things is that you can sit in the circle where there are little tables attached to the chairs. Perfect for your drinks and snacks. They also run matinees and silver screenings of older films which is a great way to spend a grey day. You can either park in the road if your'e lucky or at the top of the hill, but that needs energy to walk back up to. Warning- do not park in the NCP car park near Tesco as it is a complete rip off, you have been warned!

“Lovely little Art Deco gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is lovely, very pretty with good seats, excellent sound and not too many customers. It's a little old style but in a very nice way - staff are always friendly, excellent choice of films and good value. Deserves more customers than it gets

“A Lovely Old Style Cinema”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

After buying a holiday home in Lyme Regis we had been promising ourselves we would pay a visit to the local Cinema.
It was like going back in time to our youth. Lovely old style Cinema, comfy seating and although you can book ahead, which we did, you cannot reserve your seats in the stalls. However we got there early and got great seats.
We had noticed each time we passed that all the latest films were showing and we saw Skyfall which was brilliant.
At home we have to get in the car to go to the Cinema as our local one closed years ago so we shall be using this one again many times.

“Wonderful local cinema”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

An art deco interior, a little faded, but comfy seats and a good choice for a rainy night. The staff were very helpful, and we managed to sit in the stalls and had a good view of the screen.
