We booked this venue for a private viewing on the 17th Regis Classic Tour and had a great evening at the Kinema. Staff are lovely and the setting so unusual, if you are in Woodhall Spa make sure you include this as part of your trip.

Whilst on a car tour, we were entertained in this little gem with some 1930's and 1950's Shell movie reels, which made this little gem feel very much at home. A little cracker which brings back childhood memories - but this is no museum. The staff were very friendly and were preparing for the Easter School holidays with suitable up to the moment movies, so locals did not have to go into Lincoln. Very well done.

Brilliant, loved everything, but especially the foyer where u can buy a can of drink or a small bar of choc rather than huge bags at very reasonable prices. Kids loved the old tickets and the intermission !
Would definitely return. Do go If you are in the area

This is a cinema that will transport you to the days of your youth. How cinemas used to be before national chains ruined the market with their chrome plated buildings and high prices. Here, in the foyer, you will see old projectors, a statue of Bogart amid lots of other memorabilia. The prices are very competitive and the choice of films bang up to date. Even better they have an interval where (depending on which screen you are in) you can hear an organ being played live as it pops up from the stage with an energetic organist. Parking right outside and you can book online.
