Watched Florence here with my Partner. Very reasonable price for entrance. Everywhere was clean and tidy Staff polite and helpful. Shame there weren't more people attending. Excellent venue to watch a movie.

Lovely old theatre, which is welcoming and relaxing. Good bar facilities and amateur productions/films. Supported and run by volunteers. A good trip down memory lane for people who love the feel of original theatres.

Great to see the Hippodrome diversifying into other performance genres such as comedy and cinema. Saw Jason Manford this weekend..the beautifully renovated theatre was packed and the whole house roared with laughter. Thanks for a wonderful evening!
