Cottage Road Cinema

Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed October 30, 2013

This little Far Headingley cinema has been a cinema for over 100 years. The seats are comfortable and much cheaper than larger chain cinemas. The ice cream is the proper stuff. There is a small bar in the foyer. There is a very friendly atmosphere. The staff are great. There are 3 pubs and 2 restaurants nearby, all in all, what's not to like about it? Once visited, never forgotten!

It's great to be able to go to your local cinema where the staff are friendly and very helpful and the prices are so low! Every other cinema I know has sky rocketed in price but this one is less than a fiver - and I think the popcorn is better than any other cinema! It's lovely and nostalgic and one of my favourite places to go in Leeds! The recent upgrade in sound has only made it better...I can't rate this place enough!

Cottage Road cinema in Leeds is such a wonderful place. The place is steeped in history and has operated continually for over 100 years. The cinema retains many original features and on some shows, you are treated to a traditional interval mid way through the film, adding to the whole event of going to the pictures. The staff are so helpful and friendly and prices are unbeatable. You will not find any cinema showing films for less, this is matched by their equally impressive prices on confectionary. In 2013 Cottage Road had a major upgrade and now project in high quality digital. The sound system is amazing. You will not find it bettered at any multiplex. If you have never been, I cannot recommend it enough. One trip and you will be hooked for life :-)

This little local cinema is brilliant, has a small bar but is well placed for local restaurants who will do pre show meals. All the seats have an excellent view so there really is no need to pay extra for the pullman seats. Friendly staff. Only gripe is that if you book online they don't have a quick access-booked online as friend couldn't stand to queue and had to queue anyway-hum how does that improve the experience!!
Sorry to say that if the trolleybus goes ahead this cinema will be in danger-at the moment there is roadside parking

Going to the cottage road cinema is like stepping back in time, it is an enchanting place with bags of character.

I have been many times to see new and classic films the last visit was to see psycho. It has recently had a full digital sound and picture upgrade that will rival any cinema but only at the cottage road will you get £5.50 tickets (241 on orange wednesday), retro style popcorn from just £1.50,beer and local ice cream.

I really cannot recommend this place enough and despite it being in the heart of headingley it still feels like leeds best kept secret.
