We agree with pretty much everything previously reviewed about this little cinema. But there are a couple of things missing. Like where are the potted aspidistras on either side of the screen? Like why is there no National Anthem before the credits roll after the...More

It's an old school local cinema, complete with tea room and a torchlit escort to your seat but it runs like a dream. Don't miss going unless you truly can't stand the fim that's showing.

Great little local cinema with a Morris Minor split windscreen outside. Feels like entering the 1930s in a good way. Just a wonderful addition to our holiday with a meal deal with the local taps restaurant The Oak Rooms. The owner and volunteer staff made...More

A tiny place, in a converted church hall but nonetheless a very "real" cinema with raked seats, fantastic legroom, a surprisingly large screen and excellent sound. Had a look in the projector room as well. Would go again, to watch virtually anything.

Book it, make sure you plan your visit it's only small. But do it it's small and comfortable, and cheap too. Great for rainy days. It's better than a mainstream cinema Any day.

Friendly staff in this quaint community cinema. Comfortable auditorium provided a viewing experience comparable with the larger chains but with a nostalgic charm.

Visited this cinema during a weekend break to Lynton. A small cinema that takes you back to past times (depending on your age!) but showing recent films. A thoroughly recommended visit if you are in the area.

When ever we visit Lynton we check to see whats on at the cinema. This a quaint little cinema, it shows recent films and is always clean and the staff friendly. It is also very good value. Highly recommended.

Came to watch Peter Rabbit. What an incredible little cinema. Loved it all. Comfy seats, good size screen and lots on offer to eat and drink. Loved it all......
