Folkestones little cinema is a real gem to our town. Only cinema we use unless a 3d film, Pocket money matinees are a big hit for us as it means we can visit more frequently & have treats from the food stands. 5*

Locally run cinema, showing both big blockbusters and smaller independent work. Has a small bar / popcorn shop. The entrance is a bit small but there is a lift from the ground level.
