The Red Carpet Cinema & Café Bar

The Red Carpet Cinema and Café Bar is an independent two screen cinema with an attached café bar and large outdoor patio where you can enjoy film and food under one roof at a value for money price. You can watch all the latest mainstream and art house films or, streamed live events via satellite from around the world or, update your skills with a choice of adult creative classes. You can always enjoy delicious breakfasts, lunches, and evening meals, seven days a week.

You can find us easily as we are situated just off the A38 between Lichfield and Burton on Trent and there is loads of easy, free car parking. We are nestled alongside the daily lives of the boat village at Barton Marina where you can stroll the promenade, enjoy a walk around the lakes, indulge in an ice cream, view the art gallery, shop for clothes or most importantly eat, drink and/ or watch a film at The Red Carpet.

Above all we want you to relax and enjoy yourselves whilst we look after you. We also want to offer you great value for money, so we have a one course lunch or breakfast & matinee ticket from £16.45pp and a two-course evening meal and film from £35.95pp. You can, of course, just enjoy a film without the food in our cosy, comfortable little cinemas and our prices for a cinema ticket are £8.45 in the morning, £10.45 in the afternoon and £12.45 from 5pm onwards.

To book, press 'CINEMA' which is directly under all the pictures above. Choose the film and time you want. There are four weeks of films loaded so remember to press 'Next Week, Week Three or Week Four' if you wish to choose a future date. Once you've selected your film and your seat you will be asked if you want to eat. You can answer yes or no to this and we will work out all the timings for you. It's really simple and your won't need your credit card to do this. We don't charge a booking fee and parking your car is easy, well lit and well maintained. If you just want to book a cafe bar table, simply press 'CAFE BAR'  and follow the instructions.

Thanks so much for choosing The Red Carpet. Because you choose to support us, we are able to employ fifty local people, support the local YMCA with monthly large, essential food deliveries, and bring a local community together to enjoy plays, documentaries, dramas, blockbusters, musicals, creative classes, ballets and operas from around the world.

See you very soon,

The Red Carpet Team.
