The Little Theatre Cinema
The Little Theatre Cinema shows arthouse and mainstream films, plus live screenings and has a cafe/bar.
Built by theatre pioneer Consuelo de Reyes and her husband in 1935, the Little Theatre Cinema has remained in the same family since.
The venue retains some of the decorative features of a typical 1930s cinema while undergoing a discreet conversion into a two-screen art-house cinema. It is also now part of the wonderful Picturehouse Cinemas group.
In spite of many refurbishments to keep the cinema up-to-date with digital sound and the latest projection technology, as well as 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 luxury balcony with sofas in the main auditorium.
If you have ever seen the classic British comedy film The Smallest Show on Earth then you know what to expect here – it's cosy, lovely and very old fashioned, except it is well maintained and has a great art-house film programme alongside an extensive range of ballet, opera and theatre screenings and various groups for all the community to enjoy from dementia-friendly and autism-friendly screenings to weekly Kid's Club, parent and babies screenings and Silver Screen showings for the over 60's. There really is something for everyone to enjoy.
