Make sure that you turn up early for a G & T before the show! The cinema is coming on incredibly since before. The decor is much improved and there is an air of real quality about the establishment now!

A real pleasure to see a film at the Lantern. We got frequently, particularly in the winter. The Lantern is cosy, friendly and a real asset to the area. A must to visit when staying in the area.

It was a surprisingly easy journey from London by train to visit this most wonderful cinema and arts venue. Andy Kershaw gave us very memorable night. His recall of people and past events had all of us laughing and at times tearful with his funny moments and other times darker experiences.
The Magic Lantern has been lovingly restored by Annie and Geoff. I especially loved the murals of various characters of the big screen in the main auditorium. These were painted by Dan who also works as one of the projectionists. A well stocked bar greets you in the vestibule area as well as the usual cinema fare if you want to gorge yourself silly on popcorn. I will certainly be coming back in the near future!

We went along to the music session a couple of weeks ago - what a great night! Many original songs played and a great group of performers well done all of you ! Just hope it's on the next time I'm in Tywyn!

We have over the last few years visited Tywyn 4 or 5 times a year on holiday. Over the last 2 or 3 years we have visited the Lantern at least once every visit, twice when the film changes half way through a visit. We never visit the modern cinemas at home in Stoke On Trent. We visit the lantern now for the fantastic picture and sound quality but also because of the traditional ambiance and the feel that we have been to a "real" cinema. The team have struck the balance right between much needed improvements and maintaining the original feel. The new look bar is brilliant and it is a real treat taking a drink through to watch a film. Everyone is very welcoming and friendly and this was rewarded on our last visit in November. We actually stayed in Tywyn specially to watch the Dr Who 50th anniversary special. It was well worth it and a full house ensured a great atmosphere. We are moving to Tywyn permanently in March so hope to become even more regular then.
