  • In my opinion not quite as good as the Ultimate, but there's nothing wrong with the Phoenix, which is a decent cinema and which offers a great range of interesting films old and new.  more »
  • This arty farty cinema has rules - lots of rules. There’s a film you want to see? Not on general release? Do not go from the film distributors website straight to this cinema’s website to buy a ticket...  more »

  • Having worked here for 12 years you could assume I'd be biased but I don't need to be, this little cinema has been a jewel on Walton Street for two many years to mention. It doesn't get five because although it looks shinier nowadays, the Cineworld buyout means it's lost some of its independent charm. The place is really made what it is by the staff: they are passionate, knowledgeable, friendly and dedicated.
  • Great film selection. Short queue for the ladies after the film and no way to dry hands. Plus we were told hardly any seats left and then it was mostly empty. All staff friendly and chairs comfortable.
  • I forget how much a like this cinema. Quieter place with comfy seats and decent facilities. Parking nearby
  • I love this cosy little cinema. Its been renovated and lools good. Staff are lovely with an offering of a biscuit to go with your tea or coffee on a chilly day. Great films - some a little obscure - can be seen at this picture house in the heart of Jericho.
  • Great spot for enjoying new releases, classics and special events including Q&A with directors and such. Chairs are super comfortable. Highly recommended.
