Been meaning to visit this cinema for many years during our annual pilgrimage to Broadstairs and finally accomplished it this year. Friendly welcome, good price and tea!!! AND cheap fresh pop corn. A unique experience reminded........... Would really recommend a visit.

“A 'little gem' - picture palace next to the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

A charming little cinema with a great atmosphere - showing all the latest releases. Has all the up to date equipment (including surround sound). Comfortable seating - no blind spots. And you don't need to spend a fortune on Pop Corn as you buy your tickets (-:. Go once and you'll want to return.

“Small and quiant cinema....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

The Windsor Cinema is nothing like modern cinemas with multiplex screens with booming sounds that can be deafening. It shows most of the current films although maybe slightly later than other larger cinemas in Thanet. Its a unique cinema and the unexpected can always happen...but this adds to its charm. Only problem occasionally is when foreign students visit in large numbers and don't understand the words "quiet please".

“A True Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

First went here at about 30 years ago and it was fairly unique then, now having semi moved to Broadstairs it's a bonus to find it still going. Will always go here in preference to the Vue's 10 screens, plus its half the price! Seats might be a little uncomfortable for the really long films, but that's all part of the magic. Book ahead for one of their special film nights and you may even witness the owner playing on the original cinema organ - now that was before my time!
