The Stag, named after the Sevenoaks Theatre Action Group, was going to be closed knocked down and turned into something ghastly, but step in Sevenoaks types and now its a fabulous not-for-profit, theatre and cinema. It shows the same films as everywhere else, you book seats, you are not robbed on the sweets or ticket prices and its actually a great place. We go.... almost every time there's a new movie and love it.

We are regular visitors to the Stag concerts and have a season ticket for the 3 main classical concerts. However we and several people we know (mainly elderly, though devoted classical fans) find the recently installed seating extremely pinched and cramped. It's difficult to get comfortable: the seat base is far too narrow for many hips and thighs, and anyone with slightly long legs ends up trying to sit sideways on. Why they invested in this seating is beyond me, especially since many of us are really grateful for all that the Sevenoaks Symphony Orchestra in particular offers the community. The Pamoja Hall seating comes as a blessed relief. Can the Stag Trustees please ensure that the seating is replaced as soon as possible and with more generous dimensions?

Went with a friend to see the above. Excellent film but at £10 per adult and a £2 booking fee it was not half the price of the large cinema complex as one reviewer stated. The seats were almost reclined and quite uncomfortable, the floor isn't sloped very much so even a short person can ruin your view of the screen. I think next time we will return to Odeon. This place needs some serious investment

Please don't EVER visit this cinema dear TripAdvisor friends!
Went to watch Mission Impossible Fallout with 3 friends and had the worst experience ever.
After playing 15 mins of the movie with serious sound issues the cinema decided to reset the movie and play it from the beginning again. Unfortunately the result was the same and the entire audience walked out of the cinema.
This incident was very unfortunate but the way the cinema staff dealt with the aftermath was a total disgrace.
We were all refused a refund but only offered a complaint form.
We have not only wasted £42 on 4 tickets and an entire Saturday evening but we now also have to spend time writing an email to the cinema to hopefully get some form of compensation.
Despite the cost of watching a movie in your local cinema being twice of going to the Odeon franchise with my Times subscription, I have always intended to support a local business living in Sevenoaks. However, I will never set my feet in the Stag Cinema again after this appalling service.

The Stag theatre has new seats - they are tiny. This is such a shame as it used to be a great asset to the community. Unless you are a child you will now have an uncomfortable experience.

Ludicrously managed, as before we went in an elderly lady announced "doors close in 5 minutes and will be locked!
Before the performance the PA announcement said, if you are caught taking photos you will be asked to leave AND the performance may be stopped, a bit too passive aggressive for me.
The seats aren't that comfortable and the leg room is best for those under 5'.
Went to the kiosk at the interval and initially no one was there, eventually I got a bottle of fanta and a small ice cream for £4.50!
Not a great experience despite a great show

We visited The Stag Theater to see Whistle Down the Wind on Sunday 15th April and entering the auditorium was pleasantly surprised to see they had installed new seating since we were last there. However when it sitting down it was virtually impossible, the seats were too narrow, too low and little or no room to move your legs.I am not quite 6 foot nor well padded, my wife who is smaller than me could not sit comfortably either. Happily a member of staff arranged for us to be re-seated in the front row, bliss. we could now enjoy the show in comfort and very good it was, well done Sevenoaks. Players great performance.

Distressing and depressing visit to the cinema for a family occasion.

As a birthday treat for a mentally and physically disabled family member, we came to the cinema, only to have to leave after the adverts and five minutes of the film as it was too upsetting for this family member. The cinema made no allowances for his disability. No help was given. As the disabled person showed signs of fear and upset, we left and were also not offered any ticket refund, despite our request. Moreover, I was spoken to offensively by the duty manager. Horrible experience, betraying the marginalisation of the disabled, and lack of customer care for vulnerable individuals and families alike.

Until attempting to attend the Hot Club of Cowtown gig a couple of weeks ago I had nothing for or against the Stag, having visited a few times over the years. However this all changed when, after waiting outside in the cold for nearly half an hour (we arrived at 7.00 f or an advertised 7.30 start) we got inside to find that the event was standing only. There was a general audience uproar as many of the clients (selves included) were the wrong side of 60 and a sizeable number were clearly disabled and unable to stand for an hour and a half. I myself suffer from lower back pain and, despite knowing and liking the act, was unwilling to stand. Eventually we left and our names were added to a list to be passed to the general manager for a refund. I must point out that nowhere prior to the gig had this been advertised as standing only. Since the abortive evening my wife has twice emailed the general manager who claims that it was advertised as standing only (but cannot substantiate this) and has not agreed to refund the cost of our tickets. We are left with a very sick feeling about The Stag and will not be attending any event there in the future. We consider this to be gross misrepresentation under the 1967 Misrepresentation Act and are taking legal advice. I am appalled by the way we have been treated. Customer service this ain't and if TA allowed zero points for the rating I would award it zero.

What a wonderful show. The talented performers were amazing for an amateur production.

I can't speak highly enough of the singing, the music, the acting and the interpretation. Andy Lingfield (playing Anatoly Sergievsky), Laura Brand and Bob Wilson stood out as outstanding in a hugely talented cast.

We booked late and had seats near the side but still had a great view; the seats are well tiered so there are no issues about trying to see between the heads of the row in front.

The Stag seats don't have much leg room though and, (as usual in many theatres), there was the inevitable queue for the Ladies both beforehand and in the interval.
