The Little Theatre Cinema was built by community theatre pioneer Consuelo de Reyes and her husband in 1935. It initially functioned as a news theatre open from midday and showing hourly programmes of documentaries and newsreels. Feature films were first shown in 1939, the first two being "Peg of Old Drury" starring Anna Neagle followed by "Oh Mr Porter" starring Will Hay. The cinema thrived on local support throughout the years as other Bath cinema venues closed and in 1979 the former scenery store and lounge area were converted into a second screen. In spite of many refurbishments to keep the cinema up-to-date with digital sound and the latest projection technology, and a renewal of the seats to give the very best comfort levels, The Little Theatre has retained the charm and welcoming warmth of a 1930's cinema, including a luxury balcony with sofas in the main auditorium.

I always try and pick the Picturehouse over the Odeon because, on the whole, the arthouse aesthetic offers a different experience. However, rather than writing a review about my trip, I never made it (and this has happened quite a few times now). I keep...More

This lovely little cinema is part of Arts Picturehouse group. Two quite small screens, the cinema is right in the middle of Bath. Real charm and character. We say the Colin Firth film "Mercy" but there were a few good choices of decent films on...More

Went to see Murder on Orient Express which fitted very well with the atmosphere. Comfy setting , nice range of snacks and drinks. Saw slight flaws visible on the screen but didn't affect viewing . Beware though there is very little pace to hang around...More

A lovely theatre with 2 screening rooms and a little snack bar as well. The seats are super comfy, with the most leg room I've ever seen in a movie theatre. The screen is large enough, but obviously not 70 mm large, making it enjoyable...More

The cinema is small and old, however seats are extremely comfortable. The range of drinks and snacks was very good, and a bit different. Staff welcoming too. Definitely worth a visit.

Everything a cinema should be. I find multiplexes to be sterile, and not an enjoyable way to watch films, but going to the little feels like an experience in itself. Friendly, great atmosphere and loads of character. They also show all of the best films...More

I had no plans to see this film but seeing this fabulous little place forced my hand! This kind of place is just my thing; independent, quirky and dated. Lovely snacks and drinks. Just a fun place you should be supporting

Does what it claims. A cute little theatre showing non-mainstream movies. Friendly and welcoming, the staff are as charming as the venue - it's like going around a friends house for drinks and a movie.
