Moving pictures include heart-warming scenes of families, picturesque mountain ranges and photographs that have managed to obtain a driving license. Enjoy another kind of motion picture with today’s Groupon: £8.50 instead of £21.90 for tickets and snacks for two at the Dominion Cinema.
A traditional, boutique movie theatre which first cast open its doors in the black and white 1930s, the Dominion Cinema is a family run business which is as rich with history and ambiance as it is with films and popcorn. As well as screening a range of new release films, the quirks of this cinema include sofa and electronic style seating, plus a screen incorporating a bar, which can be hired out for special occasions. With its value officially recognised as a protected building, the Dominion has been renovated and expanded several times to help ensure that movie goers are atmospherically absorbed, from the moment of arrival to when the credit rolls.
Duos of movie lovers can kick back and select any film playing in Screen 1 or 2 using these Gold Class tickets. The picture shall be viewed from a point of luxury, with a range of cosy seating options available, and there will be a snack in the form of Pringles, so the taste buds don’t feel left out.
Qypers awarded the Dominion Cinema an statuette-worthy 4/5 stars, with audiences giving an standing ovation to the impressive vintage style and cosy atmosphere.
Forget faceless cinemas and think of a vintage style deco cinema run by a local family. The dominion is the cinema from heaven with some of the screens with big comfy leather sofas and foot stools!

As soon as I walked through the door I could instantly see the beauty of such an old and homely venue. The entrance was lovely and staff at the reception were welcoming and friendly. All of the pictures taken with actors/actresses and directors lining the walls on the way to the screens really add to the old school cinema experience. It was really a treat to sit on the comfy two-seater couches and put our feet up, and it made a change from the extremely busy and expensive Vue.
