Overview

Plymouth Arts Centre is a nationally acclaimed centre for contemporary art, independent cinema, and creative learning. We commission work by national and international artists, working with them to develop a unique, challenging and varied programme of exhibitions. Our cinema is independent, so we hand-pick all of our films, from the best of arthouse cinema from around the world to those blockbusters that you wouldn’t want to watch anywhere else. We stream live theatre from NT Live and RSC Live. We have Bringing in Baby and Demntia Friendly screenings. In the summer we go on tour for our annual Open Air Cinema screenings around iconic Plymouth locations like Royal William Yard, Tinside Lido and Mount Edgcumbe. Learning is at the heart of all of our activities. Plymouth Arts Centre is a creative place to socialise, and we want to enable as many people as possible to experience art, and feel inspired, confident and thrilled by what they encounter. We run regular Creative Play workshops for toddlers and their parent, and Family Art Workshops. We believe that culture changes the world for the better.

I frequently enjoy going to this small, comfortable cinema. A mixture of well known and lesser known films and tickets at a reasonable price. Small cafe serves very good tea and cake, and other drinks (non alcoholic and alcoholic) which I haven't tried yet. There...More

Independent cinema and art. Friendly helpful staff. The short film festival has given me a real taste for this genre. What a great weekend.

Exciting art venue in Plymouth, with great programme and inclusive atmosphere. Always good talks and workshops to attend and a great hub for Plymouth based artists. Cinema is great too, showing independent films, with a nice glass of something from the bar. :)

There is metered parking on Looe Street. There are a few car parks nearby, at Bretonside, on the Barbican, and Drake Circus.
