Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great service and a good place to stop for a quick lunch. Menu is small and the food excellent. Recommended

Visited Methven Cinema for the first time. I really enjoyed it. Owner who served me at the counter was really friendly and helpful and the cinema was great. Comfortable seats and a good movie with no glitches. I do suggest that the bathroom needs abit of an upgrade. Was clean and smelt good but just looking abit old. Overall I really do recommend Methven cinema to anyone in the area. Was really great.

A great wee Cinema. Friendly staff, a good size Cinema with plenty of comfortable seats, a good size screen and good sound. The usual popcorn, sweets and drinks available plus a few other items. The toilets are shared with the church that use the same building.

Small & lovely. Friendly owner, great ice creams. We shared the theatre with just one other couple! At 93 & 94 yrs, many people clearly live long healthy lives in these parts!

Awesome little cinema - great picture and sound quality for a tiny cinema. Great range of movies on offer from an owner who obviously has a passion for a great cinema experience.

We saw a screening here during school holidays and they were super busy but very friendly. I definitely recommend stopping here for a big screen experience that's more intimate, the only downside was they had run out of popcorn :/

Lots of the latest movies and some foreign and Arthouse. A cute tiny little cinema but picture is perfect and sounds is amazing.

Charming little cinema and great movies. Perfect for when the mountains are shut. Easy to book online, which is a must as it fills quickly.
Drinks and popcorn available.

Great cinema, nice to see the new releases are now being shown at a good time and not 5 or 6pm. Happily go back.
