The Picture House by the Sea by Holly Hepburn

The picture house by the sea is the Palace at Polwhipple – a lovely art deco cinema, nestled in front of azure Cornish seas. But it is long past its heyday now, and its only saving grace is Ferrelli’s, the family run ice-cream concession in the foyer, which is widely known as the best ice-cream for miles.

The picture house by the sea is a such a lovely summer read with plenty of friendship and drama throughout to keep you hooked. I love the concept and how Gina comes to help out her grandfather's business. The idea of inventing ice cream flavours to go with the films is pure genius and I loved reading about the ice cream side of it. I would love to visit and sample some of the delicious…

So when Ferdie, the owner of Ferelli’s, breaks his leg, his granddaughter Gina drops everything to come and help out. But when she arrives she is dismayed by the state of the cinema, which she remembers fondly from summer holidays when she was little, and she is determined to give it the makeover it deserves. Along with local renovation expert Ben, she sets about reviving the Palace to its former glory.
But the cinema needs more than a lick of paint. Its very future is under threat from a developer with greed in his eyes. Can Gina save the place before it is too late?
