Lovely old cinema, friendly staff running the cinema, nice to see they have passion for the building, coffee on arrival, which was a nice touch. Such a lovely building, my only concern is that if it is not used more, then treasures like this close.

Thank you very much for your very generous review - it is in line with many others who appreciate what we do at the Alhambra and it is very gratifying. As you say, our local residents need to "rediscover" this local gem on their doorstep!

This place would be missed if it wasn't here. Great wee cinema with free tea & coffee. Nice bit of peace in a busy town.

I used to view films here as a child (now in my 50's). The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. Feels like you're a VIP guest. Free filter coffee, friendly staff and good prices!

Villages like Keswick don't have cinemas these days but the Alhambra cinema is a little gem. A rarity in these days as it a family owned and run picture house. If you visit Keswick pay this place a visit and support a small local business,...More

Went to see Lion last night, great film, like this cinema. Enjoyed the retro feeling of the decor and layout of a 100 year old cinema. Staff friendly, and we always try and visit when in the area to support this building.

What a fantastic place! We enjoyed a great rainy afternoon in the Lakes watching Sing. With free coffee and comfy chairs we loved the character of this traditional cinema. However, don't be fooled by this. The picture and sound is as sharp as any modern...More
