Return after 35 years!

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....

Such a quaint cinema. Comfy seats and friendly staff. The cinema is clean and tidy, the tickets are good value and the films they show are up to date. Worth a visit.

Last minute decision to visit. A true gem, lovely staff, cosy atmosphere, and a good quality movie experience at half the price of larger cinema chains. Highly recommended
