About The Chilterns Vintage Cinema

We felt that is was about time there was little more culture, fun and excitement in the Chilterns, so we set up Vintage Cinema.

We’re all about bringing communities together, offering the chance to experience something new. We try and cater for all ages including couples, families and friends. Everyone is welcome, so long as you’re old enough for the films certification.

Our staff dress in traditional usher and usherette uniforms and our classic trailers will take you back to a bygone period.

Our venues are both indoor and outdoor across the Chilterns and are typically in unusual, unique and interesting places where you get the chance to enjoy the environment and the film simultaneously. 

Amersham Life


"I thought the horror movie clue hunt was a lovely touch and also have to say that the food was very tasty – was a very nice surprise to have a veggie option that did not feel/taste like an afterthought!"


"Fantastic opening night at Kings Chapel, Amersham. Added bonus of accapela singers. It really was such a great night! Excited for our next one!! Thank you to all who organised"


"We just came back from seeing Jaws at the Natural History Museum in Tring. What a fantastic experience. Can't wait to do it again soon"


"Can't recommend this enough! I originally thought it was expensive but they bend over backwards to give you value for money. Money well spent! Had an amazing experience watching Rocky Horror at the Hellfire Caves; quiz was an unexpected joy, food was delicious and the seating is really comfortable.  I'm looking forward to my next one!!!!!"


"Great fun last night watching The Shining in the caves - well organised, lovely staff, good food and great setting. If you're going  wrap up warm, it's chilly down there!"


"just wanted to say how much my friends and I enjoyed last nights showing of Reservoir Dogs - what a great venue! We would love to chance to see Silence of the Lambs if you show it again...... Would love to come along regularly!"


"Fabulous...great setting for this extremely well run event hosted by lovely people, Hellfire Caves to watch Goonies. No complaints at all, food delicious, comfortable seating everything has been thought of. Well done vintage cinemas we will be back!!"



"Husband surprised me with tickets to see Alien last night and my god.... what an amazing experience! The venue, the staff, the uniforms, blankets on the bean bags and then a hot meal to nibble on - all these touches made the world of difference and loved it and would go again in a heartbeat!"


"Well-organised, comfortable beanbags, attentive staff and amazing atmosphere. Staff were very so helpful for my disabled friend who was able to come and have an amazing evening. Wonderful setting for Paddington to be beside steam trains. Highly recommended!"


"We went along to see Jaws in the Natural History Museum at Tring ....and what a way to watch such an iconic film! Everybody was so welcoming and helpful, you genuinely felt that you were part of something special. Amid the exhibits and in the shadows of the skeletal underwater world, we sipped on fizz and enjoyed popcorn settled comfortably onto beanbag chairs.  An absolute definite 'must-do' and indeed, we will do again. "


"This was an amazing experience. We watched Donnie Darko at the Hell Fire Caves. Absolutely brilliant. Would definitely recommend. 5*"
