“A real gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

This lovely little local cinema is quaint, comfortable, friendly and good value for money. All of the big films get a showing at The Royal Cinema but it also caters for the Faversham Film Club. Brilliant.

“Brilliant Local Cinema”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Just been to watch Skyfall at this wonderful cinema. Great seats, 35mm, good sound and brilliant atmosphere. Staff are very friendly and we're definitely going here before Cineworld again.

“Cinema paradiso!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

A superb one-screen theatre right in the town centre. The exterior is Tudorbethan but it is the interior that is the real gem - a decor akin to something from the "golden age" of cinema. Staff were wearing retro uniforms which added to the classic feel. Was excellent value at £5 per ticket. The steps up appear in the middle of the seating area, so unsually it is split into distinct front and rear sections with quite a gap in between. No seat allocation, so able to try out a couple of different places - some at the front of the rear section had a railing partially in the way. Sound was not the greatest, but the screen is large. A wonderful nostalgic experience!

“A Proper Cinema”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

One screen Large Screen, Plenty of Leg Room, Good Acoustics, Amazing Art Deco Features, Good Service and Friendly Staff. The seats are comfortable, and the toilets are adequate. ok, you may have to wait a while for the latest blockbuster, but its well worth it! Go on, use a proper local, independent good value Cinema, Use The Royal!
