This is a beautiful, old cinema full of quirk and charm but which shows the latest releases. It's incredible value for money- £5 a ticket and a large popcorn and a large drink is £3.50!

This is very good value. The price is the same for everyone so it keeps the cost of an evening at the pictures down and allows you to spend money buying their drinks and sweets without paying a fortune. Well worth a visit

Thank you for your review which has given endless hours of amusement. We gather you were bored by the amount of reviews you have written on that day. Makes me wonder if you have visited us. Yet another keyboard warrior. More

Every time we visit this cinema, we are not disappointed. Friendly staff, only £5 to see a film and the confectionary stall is very reasonable.

Alarge single screen cinema. Good atmoshere. Helpful staff. Reasonably priced refreshments. Though one doesn't get the popcorn crowd visiting. Entrance price good value. Once a month the Faversham Film Society show a selected film.

Great cinema, with a lovely ambiance, reasonable prices and friendly staff. Housed in what used to be a Bingo Hall, the Royal Cinema has only one screen, but more than makes up for that with its ambiance, its very friendly staff and family friendly prices, both for tickets and snacks. In addition, the film society screens has monthly screening in... More

A lovely cinema. £5 a ticket. The snacks and drinks are really reasonably priced too. It's great! Friendly staff. They ensure they have a broad selection of the latest films as well as a monthly film club that shows a wide range of films. Would definitely recommend a visit.
