“Friendly, welcoming and inviting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

The Alhambra Cinema is a gem in Penrith. A local independent cinema which has very good movies on and has great access for the disabled.

Angela, Darren & the staff are always very helpful and approachable.

The sweets and drinks are affordable, with an excellent choice suitable for all.

“What a fantastic cinema!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013 via mobile

We visited yesterday and had a great time - comfortable seats and friendly staff. So much better than the impersonal huge complexes you find in other places.

“great place, great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

This is a superb cinema that shows an excellent range of films. We visit regularly with the children when the new must see films are released (wreck it ralf, ice age 4, monsters uni, dispicable 2 etc etc) and also go ourselves when we get a rare night away from the rugrats. If you live in city or large town this is a throw back to how cinemas used to be. Keep up the good work

“Great for a rainy day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

The Alhambra was faced with closure but after a lot of campaining to keep it open they have re-invented themselves and as well as the usual films offer lots of other things of interest too
