Can a cinema be any more picturesque? The available scientific metrics – our eyeballs, admittedly – say no. Quirky and characterful, this old converted Methodist chapel in the coastal village of Lynton in Devon feels a bit like a time capsule, taking you back to a time of Pathé newsreels, Ealing comedies and the once-romantic fug of cigarette smoke hanging over the stalls. Not that you’ll find any of those things these days. Instead, you’ll be pulled out of the reverie by the Dolby sound and modernised interior, with a 68-seat screen showing the latest releases to movie-hungry locals and holidayers. If you’re ever in the area, proprietor Bill Pryor promises the warmest of welcomes. Phil de Semlyen
Put it on the poster: Lynton lays claim to being the smallest town in England with a full-time cinema.
