Good independent cinema - cheaper that the big chains. Shows the latest hot movies, and also hosts the Fylde Film Society which shows more obscure films from around the world. Ample parking, with a handy pub/carvery next door.

Great to see latest films in small environment. If a popular day or weekend, advise booking on line to be sure of a seat.

Great little cinema all round. Easy to book online or on arrival, it’s biggest asset is its cheap! Why pay over the odds to see the latest films at a huge overpriced movie theatre when the Island is right in the doorstep? Free parking after6.00...More

This is a local cinema situated on the seafront in st annes, it has multi screens but they are small and cosy with prices to suit but they still have all the latest films showing.

Fabulous family cinema with a lovely atmosphere Quaint but modernisation would ruin the experience and take away the ambiance of St Annes Cheap and very cheerful no expensive frills.

Excellent little cinema, very well priced compared to the big multiplexes. In particular they have popcorn and drinks for a sensible price. Great value for a children’s Birthday party and we have had lots of them there. Thoroughly recommended.

Great little cinema. Wonderful prices. Use or lose!!! It would be so sad to lose as it’s an asset to St. Annes . Please support it....it’s well worth your attention.

Yes there is a purpose built lift up into the cinema lobby where tickets and refreshments can be purchased. I work with disabled people and know it has adequate facilities.

HiClare - sorry for the delay in replying - I think there are about 75 seats and although the screen isn't as big as a 'big ' cinema - it is adequate!! I should e mail them and ask them as I'm sure they will be more... More
