Overview
More
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.

Great cinema with an excellent programme of both mainstream and unusual films. Easy to book - better now with numbered seats. Very civilized, you can get a coffee or glass of wine and enjoy the film in comfort.

Take advantage of the screen that has the upstairs balcony seating area - enjoy a film from the comfort of a sofa, with numerous 'coffee-table' film books on the shelves for before and intervals. The little bar for food and drinks is excellent and the...More

I saw The Hobbit in December 2012 in this preserved little gem of a cinema. Small, intimate and a step back in time to what seeing a film used to be like !

Been here a few times and I've always enjoyed myself- and not just because of the movie. I love this cinema as it is so quaint and friendly, you cannot beat its' atmosphere. Does not compare to any cinema chain!

A cinema that isn't just a front for rip-off popcorn pushing - how refreshing. Plus all the trimmings - friendly intelligent staff and a good selection of both mainstream and independent film. Love it,
