Lincolnshire ‘heritage’ cinema adds screen to broaden offering

An exciting new development at Kinema in the Woods has been unveiled to the public for the first time.

A third screen has been added to the popular site along with a 74-seater-auditorium.

Kinema in the Woods, which is based in Woodhall Spa, has been open to film-goers since the 1920s.

It opened to the public on Saturday, June 29 showing films such as Aladdin, Men in Black: International and Rocketman.

Speaking to Lincolnshire Live last year when plans were for the development emerged, owner Phillip Jones said: “With two screens we are limited to what we can do.

“A third screen means we could put on a wider range special events like film festivals and show more art house films as well as subtitled screenings for the hard of hearing and autism-friendly screenings.

“It is important to stress that it is an addition to the existing building and it will be done sympathetically with the history of the Kinema in mind.”

Kinema in the Woods announced last month that it is launching regular autism friendly screenings, starting with Toy Story 4 on July 20.

The new auditorium is fully air conditioned and is already proving a hit with the public.

Vicky said: “Me, my mum and my sister saw Aladdin yesterday afternoon and were very impressed with the new screen – really, really nice.

“The seats are so comfortable.”

Leanne agreed, saying: “My partner and son went yesterday and loved the new screen!

David wrote: “One of my favourite places.

“I and all my family will only go to the Kinema to watch films even though it’s a sixty mile round trip.

“Thank you for preserving its tradition and heritage. This is a lovely addition to a unique cinema.”
