Beautiful old cinema showing the latest films at good old fashioned prices! £3.50 to watch the latest released films. Excellent value for money

Always helpful and friendly, good films, comfortable and usually easy to park. The ticket price is usually well below that of other local cinemas.

This cinema is a little gem, not only are the tickets a bargain but the staff are really nice and helpful. You can still detect how grand it must have been in its heyday plus it offers special events and showings. I love it. I have to travel to get there but it is well worth it for the nostalgia... More

Lovely place, not to bad for an old cinema! Friendly and helpful staff! Nice that the kids can't get lost... only because it's not that big!

I love going to this cinema, all the screening rooms are comfortable and comforting, it's a cross between going out and staying at home. You won't find better prices or a better variety of screenings, it knocks the new cinema chains into a cocked hat....Newer and bigger do NOT always mean better...We desperately need to support and keep places like...

We used to live near Kingston on Thames, going to the cinema was a £30 event. We decided to see La La Land near our near home at the Carlton Cinema at Westgate. 5 minutes in the car, easily parking on a side street, just around the corner from the Carlton then admission for 2 was either £2.50 each or...

I would highly recommend going here. Have been multiple times and have always had a great experience. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, and always there to assist you when needed. The prices are so low, and such great value! The recent refurb in the foyer is lovely, but still retains the original feel of the cinema. Comfy seats,... More
