Cinemas In Northamptonshire
Cinema Listings In Northamptonshire
There are four cinemas in the Northamptonshire area, three in Northampton & one in Kettering. Below I have listed all four, including the addresses, maps, reviews, additional info and all the cinema film listings.
Unfortunately there are no cinemas in the other major Northamptonshire towns, although Wellingborough and Corby used to have a cinema but they were both taken down.
There are three major cinemas within Northampton:

Review: The Vue Cinema is situated right in the town centre of Northampton, within the Sol Central shopping centre, it has 10 screens, and 2,547 seats. It's around 700 yards from the train station and a 5 minute walk from the main bus station Greyfriars. There is parking bay at the back of Sol Central and you get 3 hours free parking when you get a Vue staff member to validate your ticket. I would say it is the most pleasant cinema within Northamptonshire, as it is slightly more relaxed atmosphere and is more convenient to get to than the others.

Review: This cinema is located within Sixfields business park meaning you are in a prime spot for other entertainment like bowling or various food and drink outlets pre or post the film, the pub Sixfield Tavern, aswell as restaurants TGI Fridays, Pizza Hut, McDonalds, Red Hot World Buffet & Bar, Bella Italia & Frankie & Bennies. There's also a Sainsburys nearby with a cash machine. Also if you like football Northampton Town football club play their home games in the Sixfields stadium on the otherside of the park. Buses run to and from here around every 30 minutes.

Review: This is a cinema run by the local council. it is opposite Weston Favell's shopping centre and just off Wellingborough Road. As it's near the shopping centre buses run here very regularly and there are a few shops nearby for food and drink including a Tesco. One of the few cinemas that is licenced to sell alcohol prior to the screenings, this cinema also showcases films every week that are more aimed towards the older generation, although it does also show the latest blockbusters, although usually a few weeks after the other cinemas. As this cinema is relatively small it does not show all the latest films preferring to concentrate on multiple screenings of the best latests films for children and adults.

Review: Much like Sixfield's Cineworld this cinema is located right in the centre of a business park meaning there are plenty of restaurants and pubs nearby. Including the two pubs Hobson's Choice and The Park House both of which sell food aswell as drink. Aswell as the restaurants Mazaa (Indian), McDonald's Pizza Hut, KFC and Frankie & Bennie's. There's also a Tesco nearby with a cash machine. You can get on/off local buses run here on average every 30 miniutes.
