A marvellous little independent cinema, with a real old fashioned feel. The ticket prices are reasonable, the refreshments are very good value, with the added bonus of again having locally produced ice creams, yummy Yorkshire. They even had an alcohol free beer, which always makes...More

I live close by to the Penistone Paramount and it really is a hidden gem. Entering the cinema is like stepping back in time! You can sit upstairs or downstairs - I always select upstairs! The seats are red plush velvet and it really does...More

Went here recently to a Comedy Club evening. The venue is a lovely traditional cinema venue with none of the over hyped Odeon type bling! Very clean with it's own bar and plenty of staff on hand if you can't match a seat number to...More

Not sure if you had your question answered but I know of young families who do come. Especially for family films. There is an intermission too.

Both Circle and stalls are good. Benefits of the stalls is that's next to the bar! Don't forget there an intermission.

Not sure if you've been as I noted it's some months since you posted this. I've watched live shows at the front which is great but still good views at the rear. It's very good value. They're getting a brand new cinema screen... More
