As an ex projectionist and a keen cinemagoer I visited the Embassy whilst holidaying with my wife in Ilfracombe. The Merlin group who own the cinema are obviously very keen on ensuring their customers experience a modern cinema combined with good old fashioned service. The...More

Great multi-screen but old fashioned cinema, with a licensed bar and a little coffee shop in the foyer aswell as a good selection of typical cinema fayre. Reasonably priced tickets too.
