We have been regular visitors to the Kinema since 1984. It is a unique and wonderful place. Latest gem was "Bohemian Rhapsody" with a packed audience which applauded at the end. A much-loved and uniquely charming glimpse of cinema culture, past to the present.

Love having a break in the middle of the film. Old world charm. If you are in the area this is a real treat.

Will they let me live there? I want my funeral party there, have their cinema organ rise up while everyone sings 'Happy Days Are Here Again'. What's not to love?

This is the reason you come to Woodhall Spa! Quaint, quirky and still an intermission where a man on an organ rises from the floor! Good value tickets and sweet prices. Far better than any clinical industrial estate cinema would ever be. There really is...More

If there is a movie on then the doors are open. Check what time the movie starts and go fifteen minutes before to look round.
