Great value for money, at least half the price of larger venues. I booked online (30p per ticket surcharge), but due to small size may be advisable for popular films or times. Lovely small old cinema. Comfortable seating (boosters available for kids). Good choice of...More

The refit is good but one of the chairs I had booked was not useable. Thankfully one of the girls had to cancel, so it was not a problem. Very popular so do book online if you can!

Another trip to the Carlton, as a family we love it here. It is so reasonably priced, well looked after and in a beautiful building. So much nicer than going to one of these huge chain cinemas.

Went to see this film yesterday with 3 friends. Comfy seats and wonderful film. The staff were very obliging and cinema was cosy. Lovely to spend time in a fantasy land.

This cinema is small and cosy, and run by very nice people. Also its not really loud(like the Vue) There is a small car park close by, or you can park on the clifftop for free.
