This absolutely delightful venue close to the sea-front apparently seats 110 people and is housed in a building erected as a puppet theatre almost 100 years.

I love this little gem of a place. My kids would probably prefer the bigger vue as they are teenagers now but they loved it when they were little and now it is a perfect place for a romantic evening or afternoon with the hubby.

Always a great trip to the old cinema, the upstairs snug seats for two are great fun , always try to support local stuff and always a great price compared to other bigger cold and lifeless cinemas in the area

Still the same old Windsor, though no mugs of tea any more. Bit chilly, but great that this lovely little cinema is still in business. Thanks for keeping a legend going

What a wonderful cinema - it looks so tiny from the outside but is surprisingly spacious once you're inside. Very good value and such friendly staff. If you're in Broadstairs, you really should visit - it's lovely!

This little cinema is great, it has an olde worlde cham with a single screen a manual mechanical ticket machine, the close together seating and the slightly musty aroma. coupled with modern digital projection and sound. it also shows current releases.

We saw a late movie here and it was a truely wonderful experience, from the friendly staff to the slightly mouldy smell. And that is not a criticism, it is perfect and I hope it never changes, except for the addition of choc top ice creams or similar. You can't beat an ice cream cone stuffed into hot choc topping....
