This cinema hasn’t changed in the thirty years we have been visiting St, Andrews. We still visit as it has the latest films and very few places of this size still have an in town cinema. It is a bit tatty and quaint and very...More

Stinking, foostie old socks. Not even been cleaned properly since last century and no one at front of house to bid you good evening at the end of the film. Not impressed at all especially charging £8 an adult.

Having read a number of negative and indifferent reviews we were a little apprehensive about visiting but wanted to catch the new Kingsman film whilst in St. Andrews. Not having been here before, I wasn't sure about the seating layout and always look to get...More

Old and quite expensive cinema with the small screens. This movie theatre survives only because it is monopolist in St. Andrews

Certainly not the cleanest cinema I have ever been in, a good clean would not go amiss! Reasonably priced tickets, usual over priced drinks/sweets. Staff were ok, no hassles. This is a nice old building that with a bit of investment could be fab!

If you like the 70's this cinema experience should tick all your boxes! I think its the only business in St Andrews that doesn't have a fleet of students working for it,the employees appear to have got lost on their way to Gods waiting room!...More

Wow like going into a time warp almost, this is a beautiful old cinema house. Lots of original period features.

Old and quite expensive cinema - it's better to go to Dundee to watch a film. Possible to book tickets online, bar with alcohol and pop corn at the entrance

We always try to go to our local independent cinema wherever we are living and have had great experiences in the past, but this is a really disappointing cinema because the staff are so miserable and unfriendly. I don't think we've ever seen anyone smile...More

And old fashioned charming picture house with old fashioned awful rude service. I suspect the triumvirate who operate the front of house are used to sneering at the (mostly) student clientele, but I am not a student. I am, for the most part, polite and...More
