Movie night
Feb 2020 • Couples
Decided out of the blue to pop to see a film, was nice to see this cinema hasnt changed much from when I was a child loved the atmosphere, enjoyed a drink and snacks on the way in, the film was good, found the lack of a cup holder a bit tricky but otherwise I loved returning to this cinema after all those years, and will return again soon, missed having our local cinema, and would prefere to wait until films are shown here in Whitehaven than have to trail to workington.

Wonderful Cinema Lifeline for families!
Sep 2019
I saw my first film here 40 years ago, and I am delighted that since its reopening I no longer have to take buses through to Workington anymore to watch the latest releases. As a family we use the cinema whenever anything takes our fancy, we bought our ticket for Endgame the moment the came online, we buy the same seats every time!! perfect view, leg room, sound, maybe a bit warm and seats could be comfier but small price to pay. I always buy popcorn and drinks, sometimes food too. I love that I can buy and pay for my tickets online, pick a night where "our" lol seats are free, my daughter always gets to bring her best friend as with the family ticket it works out we only pay an extra £1 for her! Bargain! I did overhear a conversation when I was watching Lion King some old dear claiming it was a shame it was closing back down......to which I told her to get her facts straight first before spreading gossip. When I asked the manager he said it was the first he has heard about it,,,,I hope not, this is my little oasis far from the madding crowd for a couple of hours. Keep up the good work guys.

Trip Down Memory Lane
Jun 2019 • Family
This is the first time I have been back to the cinema since I came here with my dad to watch Bugsy Malone a long time ago. Glad to see the place is still going but with the addition of somewhere to eat. My teenage son was very happy to get a pizza, which for only £6 is great value. A lovely experience. We will definitely be back.

Cup chaos
Apr 2019 • Family
Overall this cinema is good although there’s no cup holders for your drinks and the fan above the screen is a bit annoying as when trailers are on you can’t hear them for it blowing but overall when things get going it’s perfectly fine

Great place to view films on the big screen
Mar 2019 • Couples
My favourite cinema.
Since reopening they have tried to mix maintaining the original theatrical look of the cinema, whilst adding in a few modern items (e.g. cup holders on the back 2 rows).
Not only can you still watch the movies and get the popcorn etc, but there is a little bar/cafe within there that has old movie posters up and adds your film experience.
They do a movie quiz night once a month too.
Great place to visit and watch a movie if you’re in the area.
