Keswick Alhambra Cinema   Keswick’s little gem of cinema heritage — one of very few UK picture houses to have been in continuous operation for over 100 years.  Completely independent, family-owned and run, this single-screen cinema boasts balcony and stalls, comfortable seats with state-of-the-art sound and projection, and offers patrons free tea and coffee in real crockery. Shop-priced confectionery and drinks, including wine, G&T and local beer. The Alhambra recycles popcorn packets and doesn’t stock any single-use plastic drink bottles.  A June 2019 refurbishment will see the cinema’s auditorium repainted in its original Edwardian green, cream and gold, and, thanks to a successful crowdfunding scheme, new lighting and restored burnished-gold cast iron radiators and tin panelling around the walls. Look out for Toy Story 4 and re-runs of some of this year’s favourite musical movies: Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocketman, Yesterday and Fisherman’s Friends.  36 St. John’s Street, Keswick, CA12 5AG (a stone’s throw from the market square)  BOX OFFICE 017687 72195
