What's not to love about Penistone Paramount? It's a good old fashioned cinema. Just one screen, so just one film each week. But it also has a proper bar, an ice cream lady, a choice of dress circle or stalls and the nicest staff imaginable. The tickets are just £6.50, about half the price of the multiplexes and they regularly... More

Absolute little gem of a cinema - they sell ice-cream like a theatre and have an interval half way through! Apparently you can buy a beer too but being a midday screening we opted out of this. A true eye-opener and a throwback in time. Great value especially as we got meerkat movie deals with them too...

Its our local cinema, which has a wonderful historic feel, yet it is comfy and also clean. There is a bar available and they also have an interval when you can grab an ice cream. Always enjoy coming here.

A charming comfortable venue to see all the major films and live theatre productions as well as local musical events. Plenty of free car parking. They have an interval during the film for refreshments. Not as expensive as the big cinema chains. The matinees are a must for the over 60's. With the concessions, it's a cheap afternoon out and...

Forget your other well known cinema chains, they don't have the charm of this old place! Comfy seats, a bar, an interval half way through the film, just the way it used to be! The prices are very reasonable too. I love how if you visit the bar before the film starts, you can pay in advance for the next... More

We love this venue and always have a good night here. The live performances are especially good and never disappoint. Plus, it is just up the road for us so don't have to worry about driving/parking, although there is plenty of parking in the carpark and road outside the Church.

Took my wife for her birthday to see musical of the dirty dancing film. Excellent show in what must be one of the last remaining theatre and picture palaces that is still in its original state. It's like going back 50 yrs. Well worth a visit whatever is showing.
