Having wrote previously about the Penistone Paramount there is very little more I can say. This is a truly wonderful old time cinema hall with huge amounts of character. Think it's been here around 125 years. What I find incredibly quaint is that when you are watching a film, you reach an important or critical part of the film, and... More

I live close by to the Penistone Paramount and it really is a hidden gem. Entering the cinema is like stepping back in time! You can sit upstairs or downstairs - I always select upstairs! The seats are red plush velvet and it really does feel like a special visit. The staff are friendly and the refreshments are a reasonable... More

This is by far my favourite cinema! Its brilliant inside a lovely traditional feel. There is a bar selling all kinds of drinks and they still have an interval midway through the film... you can get icecream and drinks. Much better than the modern overpriced cinema

We love, love, love having this fabulous venue nearby. To save queuing you can call at the box office to buy tickets beforehand or buy on the night. Snacks, popcorn and pop are available from the kiosk. Whilst ordering your drinks before the film, buy them the interval too and they'll be ready and waiting for you. The icecream trolly... More

Went here recently to a Comedy Club evening. The venue is a lovely traditional cinema venue with none of the over hyped Odeon type bling! Very clean with it's own bar and plenty of staff on hand if you can't match a seat number to a letter as quite a few seem to have a problem with!! If you fancy... More

Love this place. Top films with an intermission, an ice cream lady, a bar (and you can take your drink into the auditorium), and all in a relaxed art deco cinema. Definitely not your chain Odeon!

Came to see I, Daniel Blake on a Saturday night. £6.50 entry, yay! The film was deeply touching and I bawled my eyes out. The theatre is traditional and old in style but very well kept and in good condition. The Penistone Paramount is legendary in the area due to it having a bar (before all the others did) and... More

We are regular visitors and look forward to every visit. A lovely small cinema with a bar, we always go early to enjoy a pre film drink. Love the interval to get a top up, it is an enjoyable night out. We are going again this evening. The staff are all lovely and so welcoming. Long may it continue!!
