Owner description: Phoenix is an award winning independently operated multi-screen cinema on the east coast of Cornwall in the historic town of Falmouth. It is housed within a beautiful Nineteenth Century former "Drill Hall" building. Phoenix contains five cinema screens playing mainstream, classic and art-house releases with three auditoria offering luxury seating with armchairs, sofas, side tables and full waiter service. The two main larger auditoria provide traditional theatre-style cinema seating with stadium layouts and full digital sound and picture.The cinema, as you'd expect, also has a long contemporary confectionery and popcorn counter, but it also houses a stylish bar and restaurant on the first floor with chef-prepared meals, light cinema-snacks or freshly ground coffee and pots of tea. In 2009, the year that Phoenix opened, it won the prestigious UK Independent Cinema Of The Year award. Phoenix is part of the Merlin Cinemas group

We picked the Phoenix as it was the only place showing a particular film on a particular day. It was a bit of a trek as we had come from the other side of Newquay.
Our film was in screen 4, and what a lovely little room that is! Cosy leather armchairs, lots of legroom, even a couple of sofas.
It was small and intimate and a very enjoyable experience.
We didn't eat in the cafe but people seemed to be enjoying their food.

We saw The Life of Pi here. Apart from the fact that it was on at lunch time on a Sunday, a quite peculiar time, we found the cinema very comfortable and clean. We didn't stop to eat here but a lot of families seemed to be enjoying their lunch.

It's little and cost and just perfect!
It's independant so it's not chepa but it's well worth it.
Just go to any film that's in the luxury screen, where you cna cuddle up on the 2 person sofas with a glass (or bottle) or wine and share some food whilst the film is on. A great night out!

It was a real treat to visit this cinema during our stay in Falmouth - the bar area is great; leave time before your film to enjoy a coffee, glass of wine or even pre-movie dinner there. The screens are decorated very in an old-fashioned but highly comfortable style and the ticket prices are fair. Old school cinema with all the necessary mod-cons to ensure a good viewing experience. We would definitely go again!

Visit this lovely little cinema in Falmouth and if you can, get into screen 3 or 4. Comfy seats, friendly staff and would you believe waiter service! Watched Les Miserable in this charming and cosy cinema with a glass of wine. It doesn't get better than this!
