I loved going to the island cinema. There were lots of films to watch and when you actually go inside its so cosy. The seats are very comfy. There is also lots of pick and mix, popcorn, slushies and other great snacks. It is not much money at all. Definetly reccomend

We were staying at a hotel nearby and spotted the cinema so decided to take the kids.

We had a great experience, I'd come to this place over any chain cinema anyday. I wish we had one near us.

It was only £5 per person and pop corn was £2 for a small tub which lasted my kids half an hour. Coffee was cheap too and really good.

I love going to my local cinema, The island in St Anne's. Today I went to see 'Emma' with my sister. Something we were looking forward to doing. However, when we got there we were told there was no heating in the cinema as the heating was broken.
The manager came out to see us and she told us they had posted it on 'Facebook,' I wondered if she realised not everyone checks Facebook.
Or we could come back a different day...
We decided to grin and bare it but a complimentary tea or coffee would have helped warm us. (Especially those ladies who were also sitting in a cold cinema whom were elderly.)
There was also no such warning on Facebook.
I am disappointed that a) the manager didn't seem bothered and B) they had done very little to sort the problem.
Leaving the cinema, the corridor outside was quite simply tropical in temperature. Had staff thought about it the could have had the door propped open, before the showing to let a little warmth in.
I don't want to not use The Island but please, sort out your heating... This certainly isn't the first time this has happened.

Lovely little independent cinema This was our second visit here I love the quirkinesses of this little cinema such a refreshing change from the big complexeses The cinema is cheap,y prices at £4,99 each and offers a selection of refreshments and had clean toilets.we visited this time whilst on holiday at St Anne’s so within walking distance and in a rainy afternoon it was percent to watch “ fisherman’s friends” the second movie which was equally as enjoyable as the first movie! It was a lovely seaside relevant movie too which,ace it feel so specially and perfect for our holiday. Staff were friendly and helpful only negative is it’s a shame chair lift was out of order as my partner is disabled and it would have been helpful for him but we enjoyed ourselves anyway thank you

The staff were excellent in helping me with my husband who uses a wheelchair. The 3 staff we met should be commended.
The cinema itself was spotless.

This shows smaller means better value and much better customer service. We would recommend everybody in the area to give it a go. Excellent!

I like the olde worlde vibe of this place, the smaller screens, comfy seats, the choice of films and showing times, the ability to park nearby. I love the ticket prices and the cost of the snacks - I can't afford the Odeon or Vue! But above all, I really like the friendly, welcoming staff.
It's not often I'm able to take my mobility impaired mother to the cinema, but when I do, the staff make her feel like an individual, rather than a nuisance. There's a sturdy lift up the main stairs, which takes a full wheelchair. Then a disabled toilet off the foyer, which is kept locked and remains in good condition. And outside screen 1, there's a mini stairlift with a swivel seat. My mum felt very well cared and each member of staff was smiley and helpful. Absolute pleasure and made my Mum's day - thank you to all working the afternoon shift today!

We found the cinema as we were having our holiday in St Ives Hotel nearby. We watched Space Jam film. The sound was good, the screen was clear, the film effects were effectively delivered. However, it was warm inside and I would like the AC to be working better.

Visited today for the first time in a while and we are already planning our next visit! Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Prices are affordable. Seats are comfortable and it's spotless. I also appreciated the ingredients listed for the popcorn.

Very warm and comfortable cinema. Parking nearby is free and was easy to find (in the winter). The staff are friendly and welcoming. My only slight complaint was the sound during the film was too loud.
The entrance price and popcorn prices were very reasonable.
All in all a great experience.
