With "a good wine list with snacks on clean plates", and the option to sit at a table, this art deco beauty is all any cinema lover could ask for.

12. The Ritzy, London
13. Zeffirellis and Fellinis, Ambleside
A combination cinema-Italian restaurant may sound odd, but when you think about it, what could be better than pizza and a movie?
14. No. 6 Cinema, Portsmouth
Located in the Historic Boatyard, this cinema's layout is out of the ordinary, with industrial touches. Their screenings are slightly infrequent (think one a day), but their recommendations are impeccable.

An indie, with a great film selection and an even greater aptitude for puns (see above left).
16. Chapter, Cardiff

An indie cinema with a great sense of humour (see the Weyland-Yutani offer above, and Dance-Along screenings of Grease).
