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.

Restored old theatre to a cinema, but looks like to could still be used as a theatre or conference centre. The art deco style and refurbished seating, the sweet kiosk that serves, wine, beer, snacks, tea, coffee, soft drinks plus popcorn - but on a smaller scale all added to the charm of this independent cinema - although I enjoy Vue, this was more intimate and less corporate - GO!

Despite having an Odeon Cinema in the city, we consider this as our local cinema and if they aren't showing a film, then it's clearly not worth seeing!
We've seen many films at this cinema and can't fault it. It's more of an experience that just going to see a film. They have vintage Sunday movies which we've seen often as they show a lot of the classics. They also manage to change the screenings depending on the events in town - we managed to see the fabulous Sabrina during the Fashion Festival.
They also manage to quickly and efficiently cope with the large amount of visitors despite having such a small amount of space to do so, the little bar is brilliant.
At Christmas time we went to see It's A Wonderful Life which started with some carols, mulled wine and mince pies - true perfection!
I would recommend a visit to locals and visitors to the city, it's fabulous!

Small and intimate. Comfortable seats and good value. Interesting choice of non mainstream films. Staff really helpful and a scheme to be a member is available - will get you discounts on future tickets. I should have joined as they have 3 cinemas in London too. A much more grown up way of going to the cinema rather than the popcorn munching, crisp bag rustling experience that the big chains have turned in to.
