First visit here and we loved it! Lots of memorabilia inside very nostalgic. Snacks and drinks are reasonably priced compared to our local Odeon. Intermission was great allowing us time to get an ice cream and use the toilet. Comfy seats and the organist was so novel, he got a big round of applause. Definitely going back, beautiful place, friendly... More

Been a few times, has become one of my favourite cinemas. Feels like a step back in time but in a great way. A real hidden gem. Lovely old cameras and film kit to look at in the foyer which is decked out like it's still 1940 something. One trip here coincided with a 40s weekend in Woodall spa itself... More

I have been here to simply see a film (it's fine for this), to examine the nostalgia (it's amazing for this) and to experience its history, which is amazing. Its history can be summed up in one gut wrenching, proudly displayed photograph of American and British bomber crews intensely following a pre-strike briefing before launching a bombing raid into Nazi...

Everyone coming to Woodhall Spa or nearby should visit this cinema. It is steeped in history and just a fabulous cinema. It is looked after so well and has all the latest new releases. You couldn't wish for a better place to visit.

Beautiful little cinema. Still as it would have been velour seats. Curtain over the screen and an interval. Well worth a visit

WHEELCHAIR ACCESS - YES Leastwise that is how the RAF crews quartered in nearby Petwood Hotel referred to the Kinema in the Woods. Wholly unique in the UK for still using back projection - the screen is situated between the projector and the audience. Entering the building is a little like stepping back in time. The lighting is quite dim,... More
