The Hope Street cinema features in Timeout.com’s list of the best 50 cinemas in the UK, coming in at an impressive number 29.

Timeout.com’s listing stated: “This friendly seaside cinema keeps half an eye on its past.

"The original oak panelling and other original features are still in place, and there’s a popular annual silent film festival, HippFest, to take things back to when the place first opened in the 1910s.

"A £1.8 million renovation in the mid-2000s is the cherry on the cake for a beloved fixture that even has its own fan page on Facebook. ”

Adding: “Alongside those golden-age flicks, expect to see the latest indies and mainstream movies.”
