The staff were charming, helpful and knew their regular customers. Inside, the building has heraldic devices but looks like a barn with plush seats- it is quirky and obviously has live shows there too. I just hope they have a Panto as the atmosphere would be such fun.

This cinema oozes character and is a little taste of historical Faversham! We moved to the area recently and have been dying to check out this local building. I took my 6 year old to watch Finding Dory during the school holiday. Unlike the larger, mainstream cinemas, this one does not have regular movie times or days. Finding Dory was... More

An lovely old fashioned cinema, the stalls have plenty of leg room and it has a lovely big screen. Snacks are much cheaper than you find at the others such as Vue and the tickets are reasonably priced too.

Superb little cinema. £5 a ticket, audio and visuals both good, and the charming staff wore uniforms! A real gem it was a pleasure to visit.
