“Memories of happier days.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

We're lucky enough to live within walking distance of this beautiful cinema. I regularly stroll down Church Road with my five year old son for the matinees. It's nice to show my son a cinema reminiscent of my childhood before the days of the multi-plex and that still has an intermission. A wonderful picture house that invokes memories of happier days. If only the Scala and Futurist on Lime Street could be restored to their former glory, before another place of a bygone time vanishes forever.

“Quaint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Woolton picture house is over a much loved local attraction. It is quite small, but really quaint.
They still have an interval during the films, where ice cream is sold out of a tray which is carried by the ushers, as it was done is years gone by

“Picture Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Visited to watch a day time showing of Hard Days Night fifty years to the day from its first release. I had been aware of the Picture House previously but never visited before. It is splendid to see how well the theatre has been restored, the seating is very comfortable with ample leg room and every aspect was well done.

“A little piece of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

It takes you back to the older days of cinema, red velvet seats and even an ice cream usherette appears in the interval.
So glad this place has been preserved, it has character.
