We loved our visit to the Magic Lantern Cinema when we visited over New Year. Beautiful old building, really atmospheric. Friendly staff, a well stocked bar and a lovely cup of tea! The technical equipment (projector and sound quality) is excellent. Highly recommended.

This cinema is great! the prices to get in are reasonable. i would say that the food & drink prices are a little pricey. Film showings are great. their website is easy to access, and the staff are always delightful.
