Head west to Newlyn and visit the newly-opened Filmhouse. Beautifully converted from old fish merchants’ buildings, this small independent cinema shows a combination of popular blockbusters, more off-beat films, and screened theatrical events.
The café bar serves fabulous food from the best Cornish produce, and has a fantastic wine list courtesy of Scarlet Wines in Lelant. A real local affair, the cinema also serves gorgeous Moomaid of Zennor ice-cream – and has a welcome “no crunchy food” rule in the two auditoria. There are a couple of car parks nearby; or park in Penzance and walk along the prom to Newlyn.
