Hidden away at the heart of the Lincolnshire countryside is a cinema like no other. Occupying a 19th century sports pavilion, projectors have been running at the family-run Kinema in the Woods for almost a century, entertaining thousands upon thousands of visitors through the years. The original screen is thought to be the only full-time cinema in the UK that still uses a set up known as rear-projection, where the footage is shown from behind and flipped by a mirror. A second, 92-seater auditorium was added in 1994, while an organ has been added to screen one to create an even more exciting and interactive experience. Whether you’re a certified film-buff or something on the Kinema in the Woods listings has caught your eye, this is a day out not to be missed.
The Kinema in the Woods programme is packed with both new and iconic films, as well as tapings of National Theatre performances, classical music concerts and ballets.
Kinema in the Woods’ prices vary depending on the type of film and event your attending. Regular screenings tend to cost a little less than some of the larger, outdoor and interactive showings that are put on throughout the year.
You’ll find the Kinema in Woodhall Spa, right at the centre of Lincolnshire. It’s to the north of the village just along Coronation Road, and its rural location means you’ll have to travel in via country lanes if you’re visiting in the car. The closest main road to the Kinema is the A158, which connects Lincoln and Skegness. If you’ll be needing to use public transport, then the nearest railway station is Metheringham Station. With services from places like Peterborough, Lincoln, Sleaford and Doncaster, it’s around a 15 minute taxi ride away from the cinema. Meanwhile, the IC5 bus service connects Lincoln with Boston and stops on Woodhall’s main street, just metres from the cinema entrance.
Whilst you wait... just think about being in your swimmers, the sun's out and the smiles are big
