An lovely old fashioned cinema, the stalls have plenty of leg room and it has a lovely big screen. Snacks are much cheaper than you find at the others such as Vue and the tickets are reasonably priced too.

Superb little cinema. £5 a ticket, audio and visuals both good, and the charming staff wore uniforms! A real gem it was a pleasure to visit.

This quaint old fashioned looking cinema which has, nevertheless been updated over the last few years is exceptional value with both tickets and refreshments being very reasonable. The staff are very pleasant. It's a real local treasure.

Fantastic traditional picture house with a huge screen, red velvet seats and state of the art sound and projection - what more do you need and still only a fiver a film. Peter and Michael run the Royal with a genuine passion for film.

The Royal cinema is small and has only one screen but it is a lovely old cinema and very reasonably priced (£5 for everyone). Very centrally placed, easy to walk to. Shows mainly children's films in the school holidays but great variety other times.

Welcome to England! For a wonderful walk through time you must step foot in to this amazing old cinema it is a piece of history in the middle of Faversham on Market Street. Old seats a genuine usher with a flashlight! We saw an amazing Helen Mirren movie The eye in the Sky. Enjoy the old feel English cinema.
