Welcome to one of King's Lynn most beautiful buildings, The Majestic...

Welcome to one of King's Lynn most beautiful buildings, The Majestic Cinema. This stunning cinema was officially opened on 23rdMay 1928; with the year commemorated in the stained glass windows at the front of the building.

As an independent cinema, the Majestic prides itself on being a friendly place to come for all movie goers. The main attraction to the Majestic, beside its films, is the building itself and all the history that comes with it.

Today, the Majestic has three screens but back when it was first opened the Majestic had one two tier screen (where Screen 1 and 2 are now), and a ballroom (where Screen 3 is now). Over the years the Majestic has transformed but features from its past still live on within the building. You just need to know where to look.

When you next visit the Majestic look out for certain features like the stained glass windows in the main entrance, the circle of zodiac signs in the ceiling of Screen 1, the bouncy spring-layered floor in Screen 3, and the old stage in Screen 2.

Every year the Majestic takes part in King's Lynn's Heritage Day where you have the chance to explore the cinema in more detail and to learn about the buildings past. The Majestic puts on tours with knowledgeable staff always willing to guide you through its history.

Currently, the Majestic has three screens. Screen 1, with its ornate dome, seats 313. Screen 2, which holds 245 seats. This screen has disabled access and also has a superior quality hearing loop system. Screen 3 holds 113 seats and was originally the ballroom which closed 1977. All of our screens now have Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound installed.

You won't find a cheaper cinema in the area. The Majestic has 3 cinema screens, ranging in size. The seats are comfortable, sound is great. £4 a film, anytime of the day is an absolute bargain, well worth a visit. Recommend booking online as some of the films get sold out quickly. There is a slight charge for booking online,... More

No one of the most up to date cinema but 3d and only £4 per ticket so it's definitely worth a visit. Seating is comfy enough and sound is very good.

This cinema is a wonderful setting and makes going to the cinema such a fun experience. At £4 a ticket its an absolute steal too! Clearly soundproofing does not meet the same standards as modern establishments but this didn't form much of a hinderance.

This is a good Cinema, lots of character and refreshments are not over priced compared to other cinemas. Ticket prices are low too which is great and tenrecent toilet refub is well over due.

At only £4 per person to watch the latest movies, this place is an absolute bargain. It's not got as many screens as the more modern cinemas around, but then you pay at least double the price for those. Seats are very comfortable, sound quality is good - a great value night out

This is a good local cinema, not by any means large, but at a very modest entrance fee of £4, you cannot really complain. The staff have always been polite and the seats are very comfortable. Depending on which film you go to see, and they are normally up to date, you may need your ear-plugs!!

This is a wonderful cinema with really comfy seats, shows all the latest films and sometimes the bar is open so you can sit and relax. How they manage to keep going is a miracle as all seats are only £4!!!!! Well worth a visit with friendly staff

A great independent cinema. Less than £5 for an adult ticket. Also great stained glass windows. When asked for payment, I said no, please take for two adults. Really enjoyed fantastic beasts....

Smallish in the middle of town. Old fashioned decor but it suits it. The film choice wasn't great but it had the major films. The price was amazing. Only £4!!!
