Owner description: Here at Luxe we have a single auditorium that seats seventy (including four wheelchair spaces), where you can watch the film of your choice in fully air conditioned luxurious surroundings. With our Premier Seating you can sit in extra comfort and have drinks and snacks brought to you during the performance. We offer Autism and Sensory Friendly Screenings, where the entire building is set up to be as relaxing and calm as possible along with subtitled screenings and Live Event streams. We have an elegant, fully licenced Bar that has recently been upgraded to include even more products that have been requested over the last year as well as a popcorn warmer and improved coffee making facilities. Now under new management we have been working hard to build upon the great things that The Luxe is known for, starting with full digital laser projection and a brand new screen.

This is truly extraordinary - a mythically comfortable cinema carved out of a building previously run by the WI, showing first-run movies at sensible prices, with the palatially elegant seatery of large leather armchairs or opulently squishy sofas complete with cushions and waitress service.

No, such a place cannot exist, you say, and it certainly cannot exist in Wisbech. Ah, but it does, and the waitress (admittedly only available in premier seating) service can be summoned by dedicated mobile phone texting from your seat.

It's an opulence that could only be provided by an independent and this is an independent which has enjoyed more than three years of offering top entertainment in an otherwise funless town. No. That's wrong. The excellent Angles Theatre is just up the road and indeed you could use the same FREE car park to visit either. Perhaps there's a mutuality to be discovered there - some cross promotion perhaps. Working together to bring folk into the town.

Please, if you haven't discovered the Luxe, it really is a unique place to see a movie. We saw Les Miserables and the place was packed. Book online; it's easier. Be prepared for the magic of the movies combined with practical efficiency, terrifically helpful staff and a great latte.

This cinema is marvellous. No whiff of greasy hot dogs or over priced pop corn. Friendly, helpful staff, good ticket prices, gorgeous hot chocolate but best of all proper leather seats! Loads of space to curl up in them and plenty of leg room. Would now never go to any other cinema to be ripped off or uncomfortable

The luxe is a small cinema which gives a very personal feel to it. The seating is incredibly spacious and the longer films still have the benefit of a half time break for snacks etc. We will definitely visit again

Have been a number of times now, always a great experience but seeing les miserables in the "best seats" at the back was a wonderful experience. We will try and book these seats from now on, they are so comfy. We have great respect for the owner who makes the visit feel personal with his chat and information in the interval. Absolutely fab, far far better than the aweful multiplexes nearby.

The Luxe is fantastic. I went while heavily pregnant and the staff were fantastic the film was very long and i required a cushion in order to stay comfortable and they could not be more helpful. The whole visit was not expensive and was a fantastic night.
