“Great retro cinema”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Tom (who is the owner) has been a great host and he kindly showed us around in the cinema. We were amazed at how much work he has done for the cinema. We are glad that much of the structure has been preserved after 100 years! Great night activity for the winter!

“Wonderful traditional cinema”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

I really enjoyed not only the film but the wonderful setting, the staff were excellent. Will return again and again - the UK could do with more traditional cinemas like this.

“Quaint”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

Although in need of a little tlc, it is run by friendly volunteers and enthusiasts. Very quaint, comfy seats and refreshments not a rip-off. Free coffee if you want too!
Good night/day out if the weather turns.

“Good old fashioned cinema”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

We saw a curious 'Keswick film club' film on a Sunday - a Turkish film about 3 angelic missionaries from Turkey - and the addictive 'Sunshine on Leith' on a Monday, sitting in the circle the second film. Very few cinemas have circles so it was an interesting experience. The cinema seems very friendly and so very different from modern corporate multiplex cinemas.

“the way cinema should be”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

This cinema is quaint and so much nicer than the bland big chain complexes. Worth a visit to experience what cinema should and used to be like
