“Grotty!”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

We were very disappointed in Perth Cinema - it is very grotty and in dire need of a refurb. The seats were grotty and the bathrooms were disgusting - in desperate need of a good clean. The film was excellent - but the surroundings spoil the effect.

Thanks for your comments. We're in the middle of our much needed refurb. Screen 1 is now IMAX and half the foyer has been transformed in to a cafe. Still much more to happen so hopefullly you'll see the improvements on your next visit:)

Thanks for the kind words and glad you like the NT live. We're in the middle of our refurbishment at the moment but even more exciting is that we're going to be screening A Streetcar Named Desire in September live from London (plus it's also in screen 1:)

“lovely cinema”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 via mobile

Good old cinema, slepways screening up to date movies. They do regular screening of live shows in the west end London, they are great quality. The cinema has great character and makes you feel sat home. Great family day out.

“Lovely old cinema”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

What a lovely old cinema! We went to see 'Frozen' (great film) here on New Year's Day with my son and his young family.
The building is very stylish, although I do rather worry for its future. There were no more than 30 of us in the largest screening room - and the projectionist forgot to start the film until we went to remind him!
Hopefully it gets greater usage on more 'normal' days, and so will not suffer the fate of so many other older cinema buildings.

Thanks for you kind words...and looks like we've sorted out the Ghosts in the projection Machine:)
We've just embarked on a refurbishment too so if you get a chance let us know what you think of our new cafe (it's just the start for us:)

Reviewed 5 October 2013


Some small rooms seems like it’s a private viewing!! Great to still have this building still in use.
