This is in the Maltings. You can buy a drink and take it in, and the tickets are very reasonable. Somehow it has the feel of an old fashioned cinema about it and not one of the mega chains.

Great to have a cinema in Ely. Great cinema, really clean and friendly staff. The places around the cinema are starting to open but it was quiet on a Sunday to see Wonder Woman

The cimema is in the Maltings in a room that is used for other functions. The seats are on various levels and i think they must be pulled out as a unit as they areput away for other functions. They are close together and cramped,...More
