Small, but perfectly formed little community cinema! Very comfortable seats, up to date films, selection of sweets/chocs/drinks for sale. Altogether a really good experience!

technically a very god venue,however the sound system is far too loud and bassy for my liking. film selection is modern and up to date but does nothing for me ( probably fault of film makers ) so dont visit very often. Shame as it is a very good cinema.

The Wootton Electric Picture House is a community project to keep a small cinema in the town centre operating. It is run by volunteers and they are very welcoming and friendly. On the day we went the projector had broken down and the engineer was on his way. We were invited to come back an hour later when hopefully the film could run and we would get our money refunded anyway because of the inconvenience. We returned an hour later and after a ten minute wait the film started. The seats are comfortable with plenty of leg room. Possibly the friendliest cinema you will ever visit. An added bonus there is free parking nearby.

Amazingly comfortable, small cinema with first-run movies on digital projection equipment, and everything is run by volunteers! I saw a Judi Dench movie that had only just been released in the US.

This is a lovely, friendly little cinema staffed by volunteers and run by folk who care about promoting community spirit in the town. They even give out a free sweet to everyone at the start of each performance, something that never happens at the big, impersonal multiplexes! It reminds me of going to the cinema when I was young - a totally enjoyable experience, just like it used to be...
