Since we found this little cinema a few years ago we haven't even considered going to any of the big plastic modern multi-screen palaces.

Forget Jason Bourne, you've just got to experience this friendly local town cinema. Enjoy a gin and tonic, glass of wine or your favourite tipple. This cinema is well worth a visit, forget the Vue's of this world.

Our family watched Minions in here a while back and I have to say this experience was much better than Vue! It was smaller but it felt like a personal service and the people working there truly loved looking after the visitors - well done!

You are made to feel part of the family in this small cinema in the heart of the town. Small in size but not in the welcome or the entertainment. Latest films and Classics are combined with refreshments - and easy and very convenient parking. Definitely recommend

Love this place, always go here with my mum and see all the new films at more than half the price. Popcorn is cheap, everything. Love it and quality is fab! Seat comfy - cannot fault!

Wotton EPH is my cinema of choice: good value ticket prices (especially on Mondays), great sound system, friendly staff, very fairly priced confectionary (unlike most commercial cinemas!). I have seen many excellent films over recent months, as well as live Shakespeare and opera. And all this within walking distance of home.

Lovely atmosphere with a warm cosy feeling - just how I like to enjoy a film! Couldn't be further away from the over priced cinema venues you see around, noisy and overcrowded this is not! :)
