“Very good cinema set up.”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

I tend to feel a bit uncomfortable in places where a substantial proportion of the users are members and seem often to be working to an unknown or better informed agenda. I have had one or two disappointments at the box office when we have been trumped on an unusual or popular film. That gripe aside I like the Picture House, the selection and screening of the films and the general unhassled comfort of the two cinema spaces themselves. Recommended.

“What's not to like about this cinema”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Big enough to show mainstream films, small enough to show the unusual ones or the oldies. Special screenings for mums with babies and children with special needs when sound and lighting is muted. Nice upstairs cafe which is well used by those visiting to see films. No parking to speak of so you have to park in the city but that's only 5 minutes away on foot.

“Chaos - but still lovely!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Oh dear - went to a free showing courtesy of the Guardian but they seemed unable to cope with the fact that members had also booked. As others say the staff are lovely but this cannot have come as a surprise to box office. Usual unfocussed staff in the cafe meant that people were still waiting for drinks when called to the screen.

“Best Cinema in Exeter”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Obviously, you'll see the same films anywhere (though this cinema has some fantastic art house films too). But what makes this cinema really stand out is the quality of the staff. You feel like your in a venue that the people working their really care about, as you enjoy a glass of wine or local cider whilst having a conversation with the barman about the film you're about to see. Always courteous, always informed - this is the cinema to go to for those who understand that an evening out is about more than just what happens when you're in that large dark room.
