As Cambridge residents. we probably don't go to the Picturehouse as often as we should. It's a real experience going there: you can get a glass of wine and take it into the film with you, the seats are comfortable and the setting is cosy,...More

I had booked to see They Shall Not Grow Old next Wednesday but had to cancel because I have to attend a funeral. Rang the hotline and was given an instant refund. I had booked online and found it very easy.

Light, crispy battered, good quality fish with wonderful chips and mushy peas - just one of the delicious meals on the menu. If you are a member of the Picturehouse, there is a discount - my £9 fish and chips cost just £7.50! The portion...More

Excellent choice of interesting films. Comfortable seating in the theatres. However, be very wary of the prices for drinks. We were charged over 8 pounds for a medium sized glass of wine.

Cinema in the heart of Cambridge, with a lovely bar/coffee area that serves good food from 12 noon. They show an amazing range of international films, many of which you will never see in other Cambridge cinemas. Extremely friendly staff, great value for money. They...More

I love this place - it has a really nice relaxed old-school feel about it and it's not always so busy that it's hard work to get in and out. I always buy online so that I can book the seat I want and have...More

As well as showing all the major releases this cinema also shows films that you would not normally see at major chains. A really lovely old cinema with a lot of character. There's lots of stairs and I can't remember seeing any facilities for disabled...More

I am old enough to have been in to this cinema before it was divided a Weatherspoons built downstairs. The picture house is an art house cinema with three screens. It shows a wide variety of films and serves cocktails and nibbles in the foyer...More
