I, my husband and grandchildren love coming to this cinema to watch films. There are no mod cons, in fact it is like stepping back in time and at £5 a ticket the prices are very good too. I am so used to paying extortionate prices for popcorn and drinks at more modern cinemas but at £2.50 for a medium sized bucket of popcorn you just can't complain. The staff are very pleasant and always make you feel welcome and you are always met at the door on the way out by one of them who thanks you for coming. It is us who should thank them. Excellent value for money and I shall return again and again.

We love the cinema at Faversham. The prices are good compare to the big chains Approx £5 a ticket and the films are up to date. The cinema is nice and little, you can still by your sweets and popcorn at the entrance(or take your own)

The only down side is you have to pay for parking if using the towns car park. You could always park at Tesco for free :/

We love the quaintness and individuality of this cinema. The ushers are in uniform, are polite and helpful -and truly unique experience! The cinema takes one back to a bygone era and at £5 a ticket is certainly value for money .

I've been going to the cinema Royal since I was young, and it is just as good as when I was 8! Though not as up to date as Odeon or Cineworld, it's so much better. There's an amazing atmosphere. The staff are most polite and will attend to all your needs.
It's also so incredibly cheap; £5 for a ticket (all ages) and the snacks and drinks are fairly priced too.
They show a variety of films, and often show child friendly films at child friendly times on weekends.
Lovely cinema, staff and prices!

an attractive, rather quirky interior, comfortable seats, very good ticket prices and friendly and knowledgeable house staff, with an interesting mix of films shown. if you are in faversham of an evening the cinema is definitely a good alternative to fish and chips or an indian meal, which you can have afterwards anyway.
