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 £15.95pp and a two-course evening meal and film from £33.95pp. 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 £7.95 in the morning, £9.95 in the afternoon and £11.95 from 5pm onwards.
If you're planning to visit us, we recommend booking your seats in the cinema and/ or the cafe bar using our very easy online booking system.
See you very soon,
The Red Carpet Team.

As of 11.20am Sunday 3rd December, the road leading into the marina is largely clear with a little slush which is clearing with the rain. The paths are also mainly clear with some slush although the main path leading up the front of the cinema building is undercover and is therefore completely clear. If you have a passenger who is nervous of the conditions it may be worth dropping them off in front of the cinema before parking. The surrounding grassy areas have a moderate covering of snow. It's currently raining.
All the team are here, we have cranked up the heating, the Christmas decorations and up and we're cooking the Sunday roast with a special addition of succulent Turkey together with the festive music and cheery smiles.
