This really is a little theatre cinema! We have been previously and always selected the sofa seats in the balcony. The only downside is if you slouch down on the sofas and are not tall enough the bottom of the screen can start to disappear!...More

I love the Little because it's everything the Odeon isn't. But yesterday we went to the 5:30 showing of First Man. Arrived to find good seats in the balcony at 5:25. But the pre-film adverts were interminable, every time we thought that the batch of...More

Hi, thanks for the review and thanks for loving the Little. I'm sorry to hear you're trailers exceeded the expected 20 minutes by 5 minutes. It certainly is too long. All of our main features are scheduled with 20 minutes of advertisements and trailers, however,...More

One of my favourite cinemas worldwide. Discreet, calm and while refreshments are available, they are not the main attraction! Not to be missed by anyone who loves film.

One of things I love about the Little Cinema in Bath is the variety of films shown. With only 2 screens there's always a smaller selection than a larger cinema. However, they do wonderful focused seasons celebrating great film making. Whether it's the showing of...More

Despite living near Bath for the past four years I was unaware, until very recently, of this little gem's existence. Possibly because it's tucked away down an alley in central Bath. I've probably walked passed it one or twice without even noticing it. As a...More

I always try and pick the Picturehouse over the Odeon because, on the whole, the arthouse aesthetic offers a different experience. However, rather than writing a review about my trip, I never made it (and this has happened quite a few times now). I keep...More

This lovely little cinema is part of Arts Picturehouse group. Two quite small screens, the cinema is right in the middle of Bath. Real charm and character. We say the Colin Firth film "Mercy" but there were a few good choices of decent films on...More
