I've been a member here for many years and the Arts Picturehouse used to be good, but has declined significantly in recent years. They used to show a better range of films but now frequently show mainstream blockbusters which means the interesting films get squeezed into a few showings at inconvenient times and are often gone after a week so...

We've visited the Arts Picture House numerous times over many years. Sadly the visit was completely ruined by really noisy people rustling sweet wrappers and munching popcorn through out. I felt that it was no longer the special place that it use to be

An excellent cinema there is a bar which means that you can take beer , wine etc into the movie which can make the experience different. Well worth a visit to support small businesses.

This cinema has more of a 'club' feel about it: warm and friendly. Bar is quite expensive if you're not a member, but the wine is well-chilled and there's a great selection of light snacks (hot and cold) if you're feeling a little peckish or rushing straight from work (or lectures!) to catch an early evening performance. Seats are comfortable.... More

One of the best things about Cambridge - despite being owned by Cineworld. It is always my first choice for a film and the pre-filming drinks are essential. This is a formula that seriously works - great choice of film, great atmosphere and a great bar and cafe. Its a complete night out

Spent a delightful four hours sipping drinks and watching Hamlet streamed live from The Barbican - what better way to spend an evening?

We went to see the premier screening of The Wall, Pink Floyd, and this unique secret of a cinema made our evening perfect. An intimate venue which offers a small bar for pre drinks and snacks (drinks can be taken into the screening). Comfortable seating and all areas very clean. Very central location surrounded by good quality restaurants and bars.... More

MY wife and I went to a matinee performance at 1100 of "45 years " only to be told that the performance was only for "adults with babies" and the next performance would be at 1345, too late for us. There was no information on the cinema's website although I suspect that the cashier, who's first language was not English,... More

Had a great time here, the cinema was clean and very relaxing. Was good to take a glass of wine in and relax with friends... Maybe too comfy as I did doze !
