“Great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

As locals we go here at least once/twice a week depending on work. The films are constantly changing so there is a wide variety and something for everyone. Screens are good big size and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. The staff are always polite and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. Even take your wine in the lux screen which is a bonus!

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

Visited this real gem of a cinema during a short stay in Ilfracombe, and wished we had this wonderful attraction in our town.
Pre booked tickets online to watch Bad neighbors.
On entering the venue the staff met us with warm and welcoming smiles, genuine, not the false 'have a nice day through gritted teeth' types of smile!
A credit to the cinema and a real asset.
Small bar area and a choice of snacks, popcorn etc, and small seating area whilst waiting to go through to watch the movie.
We had the small 38 seat luxury screen room......
Made a visit to the cinema totally unique to myself and my wife and 2 grown up daughters....
Nice old comfy leather chairs, masses of leg room, and table to put your drinks on.......
Quality of picture was spot on,sound excellent....
And all this for only £4.99...
Biggest surprise to me was that only 11 seats were taken up.........
If you are visiting this area of Devon do not miss the chance to experience a taste of how things should be done...............
Well done to all that help run and support this fantastic cinema...

Staff are so friendly. Screens are big and prices are low. What more can u ask for . You can also join the cinema rewards club if u intend to go regular throughout the year. You then get a discount on your tickets every time u go

“Charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Tiny cinema so we were expecting an oldie type screen. Amazed when we walked into a small room with individual lounge type leather chairs and tables. Only about 20 of us all families for an afternoon showing with drinks and treats. Excellent value.

“Must be supported!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

Ilfracombe is sooooo lucky to have this lovely cinema right on the high street! It is small but charming and comfy seats. Screen 7 has fabulous seats with little tables and everything! The price for a film is stupendously cheap so we always buy food and drink to give them a profit. This place must stay open!
