“Brilliant !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

For me the only cool thing about Folkestone is the Silver Screen Cinema which I would recommend to anyone wanting to ''travel'' back to the times of small cosy cinemas. It offers quite new movies and you can get popcorn, other snacks and drinks which I didn't expect. The best thing is the VINTAGE ticket machine which the guy at the counter uses to issue tickets! Awesome!

“local cinema”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

While it a little old fashion the staff are superb they have a chair lift too & cheaper overall compares to larger cinema chains also in town centre so if have older kids you would able to leave them there while you went shopping

Lovely local cinema, amazing decor and quirky touches that make it a much more enjoyable visit than going to a multiplex.
