My first visit since Covid restrictions... Very happy to return to the Kino. Booked online ahead of visit and chose seats. We were shown to a table when we arrived and enjoyed lovely coffee/beer before the film. Also very good gluten free cake! Charming staff as usual and excellent compliance with hygiene requirements. Thanks Kino!!!

Spent 2 nights in Rye and went to this cinema twice. It is a real gem and I only hope it can keep open in these present circumstances. Staff were so friendly and helpful, drinks and snacks were available, whilst being very covid compliant. My only criticism was it was quite expensive, but in these difficult times we were glad to be able to support them.

Great little picture house. Small, spotlessly clean, Really comfy chairs and a fantastic little Caffe Bar that serves a great selection of wines. Perfect

We visited Kino in September 2019 and had a wonderful experience. The staff were welcoming and there was a range of snacks and beverages to chose from. There is a very friendly atmosphere at the cinema and a range of the latest films showing.
