The Magic Lantern


The Magic Lantern has been here since 1893. First built as the town assembly rooms, it was used for such noble pursuits as badminton practice and variety performances. The building has been operating as a cinema since 1919 (Known then as The Assembly Cinema) and now boasts a state of the art Sony 4K digital projection system with Dolby 7.1 surround sound: that's about the best equipment any cinema could wish for!

The Magic Lamp has a fully stocked bar and two stages for our Live events. Their packed programme includes live streaming from The RSC and National Theatre, live comedy, and live music.
