The Little Theatre Cinema was built by community theatre pioneer Consuelo de Reyes and her husband in 1935.Use our Bath road trip tool to add Little Theatre Cinema and other attractions to your Bath vacation plans.
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 1930s cinema, including a balcony in the main auditorium.
We are also a very successful wedding venue for ceremonies and host around 20 per year.

Our screen was up several flights of stairs, which seemed tricky for a number of visitors so beware if you have accessibility concerns.
Lovely cosy intimate venue. Sat on sofas at the back. Which were really comfortable!
