The Coronet was opened as a Victorian theatre in 1898 and was soon regarded as one of the finest theatres outside the West End. It hosted members from all walks of society including King Edward VII. It seems famous actor Sir John Gielgud saw his first Shakespeare play there. It has for many years functioned as two-screen cinema and was made famous when Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant filmed a scene there in 'Notting Hill'.
The Coronet has three tiers of seating, stalls, circle and gallery (presently unused) comprising of 400 seats. Screen two has 151 seats. Although in need of much refurbishment, the Coronet remains a wonderful venue not only for Cinema but also for other functions.

Now this is what I call a proper movie theatre...rather than just a cinema. This is the real deal, old school. Gotta check this place out, very reasonably priced too.more
A banged up old cinema that shows the newest releases and some old classics at a decent price... On Mondays students pay £3.50 and Tuesdays that price for everybody. When compared to VUE & Odeon prices (£10+++) it's a bargain.
It's free seating so get there on time, especially if you want to sit together...more
It's really tricky to rate the Coronet. On the one hand, it's SUPER MEGA CHEAP if you go on a Tuesday: £3.50 all evening, regardless of your age, student status or choice of film. On the other hand, the quality of the surroundings ain't great. The seats are knackered and so low to the ground that you're sitting with your knees around your ears and nowhere to rest your head, plus the sound...more
Affordable lovely local theatre. Plus a special tuesday night deal with £3.50 tickets!
I was warned about the seating (thanks Vicky L!) but it wasn't that bad, especially since I ended up watching a really good movie, we were sat there for 2 hours and lost track of time!
The bathrooms are a bit smelly and awkward. I don't want to need so many road signs to get to the loo.

I've been here twice and find the cinema charming and effective. Even at full price (£7.50) it's cheaper than most cinemas in town, and they offer matinee pricing before 6:30 (£4.50) and discounted £3.50 tickets for students on Monday and everyone on Tuesday. Sweet.
There are two screens- screen 1 is in the vintage theater with multiple levels and screen 2 is a standard setup.
