Overview

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.

Visited at the weekend to watch Paddington bear, booked our tickets online, when we arrived the machine was broken and the foyer was packed, think the Cinema needs a better solution for popular films. But, film good, seats good, pricing is brilliant.

I'm a huge film fan but seldom go to our local cinema because of parking and general faffage. However, Mrs T used compare the market for her car insurance and got a two for one cinema deal. Since all seats here are just £4 that...More

We love going to watch movies at The Majestic. It's a real old fashioned cinema with a new twist, it's around £4-£5 to see a movie in old surroundings with new seating and 7.1 Dolby surround. A real treat.

Probably the cheapest cinema you'll find anywhere. They have a small selection of movies the choose from. The seats are alright, quite box standard. If you're near by and don't want to pay for the extortionate prices of big branded cinemas / movie theatres, then...More

Hi I am so sorry for late reply but I believe you can access the cinema in a wheelchair. They open the fire exit but I am not certain if you can get to see all films as there are 4 screens with only one on ground floor
