“Love this little theatre”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

Whenever I come to Stratford I try to see a movie here. It is not a multiplex but has such great character and the people who run it are so nice it is even better! Support your local cinema - I would more if I lived here!

“Great movie experience”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

I love going to the movies here. It still has the half time for ice cream purchases but currently running with a brand new digital projector so the half time is missing.
great atmosphere always with lots of film memorabilia around to showcase the advent of the films in this still mostly original theatre.

“Movie museum”
Reviewed 15 January 2013

Loved the whole "days-gone-by" atmosphere of this place. Historical and epic it has seen many a movie and show as well as famous actors such as Ian Mackellan (Gandalf) of Lord of the Rings fame, to name one of his movies.

“Theatre enriched with history”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

We went to the old Kings Theatre in Stratford not expecting much. When we got there you could feel the history in the place with the old classic seating and atmosphere, its definitely a place to go if you like you history.
