Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Good price. Nice little cinema. Whats not to like? Went to see The Two Faces of January on a cold rainy summer day!

A wonderful little cinema with an intimate atmosphere. It screens NT productions, foreign films and all the current listings. It has a silver screeners in early afternoon and caters for children. I love it there and am now a member.

As one of the top attractions, we sought out this place and I'm really glad that we did.
We bought tickets the evening before and the staff working there were really helpful.
Turned up a little before the show was to start and settled in to comfy seats.
It really is charming and I would recommend a visit.
Try not to let this out you off, but when we went there were builders working on a new store across the road. There was a sound of drilling which could be heard over the film several times.
Do visit, but maybe choose a time outside of normal drilling hours.

Took my daughter to see The Wind Rises here while on holiday. Struggling to think what I wouldn't do to get a beautiful cinema like this near where I live. All the fixtures and fittings are pleasingly old school, and there is a clear devotion to cinema from all concern. It would be worth moving to Bath to have this place on my doorstep. Thanks for a wonderful memory (the film was pretty good too).
