I love the Little because it's everything the Odeon isn't. But yesterday we went to the 5:30 showing of First Man. Arrived to find good seats in the balcony at 5:25. But the pre-film adverts were interminable, every time we thought that the batch of...More

One of my favourite cinemas worldwide. Discreet, calm and while refreshments are available, they are not the main attraction! Not to be missed by anyone who loves film.

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

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
