The Radway opened in 1928 and was planned to operate primarily as a theatre. As a live theatre it quickly failed and was soon altered to better accommodate cinema use.Whilst the building enjoyed a very thorough refurbishment in 1999 care was taken to do this as sympathetically as possible in order to retain its early 30’s charm.Digital Projection, 3D and Sound was recently been added.

Book in advance online, as you can then skip the queue. That is my only gripe: the film was advertised as 2pm, but they didn't open the doors until 2pm, so the film didn't start until they had everyone in, about 2.45pm, which is an...More

Scotts Cinema is one of the older type cinemas - large, with just one screen. The seats are comfortable. Suprisingly this cinema manages to get all the latest films at the same time as the major cinema chains. The small team of staff are always...More

Visited with our daughter, friendly staff and a clean cinema. My wife had a cup of coffee from the bar which she was allowed to take in. Comfy seats too.

A great little cinema which hosts a wide range of films to appeal to a broad audience. A clean and comfortable environment. Well worth a visit.
