A little disappointing.
Nov 2021
Great to see "No time to die" but perhaps not the best experience at this attendance. Not a great choice for treats (no nachos or hot dogs), but mixed sweet and salty pop corn was a hit. We were in screen two which is a little compact but adequate. Staff were very professional including the removal of an undesirable person who had to be ejected but probably the biggest issue is the relatively small screen which has some horizontal lines on it which were a constant annoyance (perhaps the screen has been enlarged) as they were viewable throughout the presentation. I had called the help line (and left a message to enquire about COVID restrictions and also allocated seating but was not contacted, so a little disappointing all round.

Stepping back in time!

We were in the area on holiday and we're looking to see Daniel Craig's final outing as James Bond at the local multibox cinema and found the Palace Cinema via Google.

Beautiful place and yes as a 48 year old man this was the perfect place to see the film - really nice staff and the cinema is timeless and if I lived in the area I would definitely choose to go to the Palace rather than Vue or Cineworld.

A Treasured Gem.

I love going to this cinema. It is beautifully old fashioned. So friendly, convenient, comfortable and enjoyable. One of a kind and very sad to read the odd negative comment.
It’s not a stereotypical, character-free multiplex. Plenty of those around, but this cinema is special. Long may it survive.

Love this place
Dec 2019
Yes, this place is old but that doesn't take away a nice night out watching a movie. The old board floors on the balcony add to this place's charm.
The sound is perfect and not over the top like some cinema chains. Clean and tidy. And just under a fiver per adult and not costing a mortgage for a night out. And with new releases often on the day of general release.
Long may this place keep going.

Ignore the negative reviews, I'm a regular

The title should tell you all you need to know about the negative reviews, not to mention the majority of them are from years ago.

Currently they have super friendly and helpful staff, the food available, whilst it is a small selection, does offer the basic candy's, popcorn, soft drinks and hot drinks aswel.

The seats are pretty comfortable and there is no smell of "damp" as some reviews might suggest.

They have 4k screens like most of your typical city style multiplex cinemas and a really good sound system aswel, needless to say its inexpensive and has the latest blockbusters available.

You get what you pay for and that's a pleasant cinema experience with all the essentials, include well kept toilets, the same cannot be said for some of those in the city or large town multiplex cinemas.

Rude and wrong.
Jul 2019 • Family
We wanted to see ‘Yesterday’. We were told that our daughter, who is a wheelchair user, would not be allowed to go in because there is no plan to get disabled people out of the cinema if there is a fire- the screen was up 2 flights of stairs with no access. I pointed out that this is discrimination against my daughter. The staff member said that it isn’t because they post this information on their website. I said that that doesn’t make it not discrimination, that just means that they publicise their discrimination. He said that it’s not discrimination because it’s not just my daughter that they don’t allow in. I said ‘no, it’s all people with a significant disability that you don’t allow in.’. He then sarcastically said ‘well aren’t you a wonderful person’. Just so rude. My daughter said that it hurt her heart.

Quaint historic gem of a cinema

If you're expecting an Odean or a multiplex with it's impersonal sameness, all be it with top rate sound and film quality because you're a techno quality controller I suggest you find somewhere else. If however you want to cue like the old days with or without your grandchildren and children (for me the latter was, true excitement building all the while) you will pay very little for tickes to watch a current film on either of 2 screens (3 different films are usually available at different times of day) you'll sit in old school velvet seats with more leg room than you would in the local Vue in a charming picture theatre. Fabulous family friendly experience

Antiquated Ticketing
May 2019 • Family
We are on holiday staying about 40 minutes from the cinema so wanted to book tickets online. No online booking available. I therefore made a special trip to make sure we could get tickets for the following day and was told I couldn’t book for the following day or for a showing later that day but only for films on that afternoon. We would need to come along and queue for the performance we wanted and hope there were still tickets available. While I’m a great supporter of keeping such venues alive I can’t see why developing their processes to make it easier for customers couldn’t be easily achieved........antiquated doesn’t equate to quaint.............

Lovely old building,
Seats comfortable, at £7.50 for adult reasonable. Nice and warm inside and sound and picture was perfect. Current and up to date movies played here.
Highly recommend.
