I have been here a number of times and I love the charm of the place - so different from the multi screen cinemas nowadays. It is slightly more expensive than the cinemas slightly further out but I think it is worth it for the atmosphere and the convenience of being in town (my daughters are both at colleges very...

This is such a lovely place to come for a light meal even if you're not seeing a film. The café is beautifully decorated and has a great atmosphere with a birds-eye view of St. Andrew's Street. The menu is varied and has a good vegetarian selection with lots of dishes you can share. The bar has a tempting selection... More

We always go here in preference to any other cinema as it is central and very civilised, with the opportunity to have a drink while watching you chosen film. Also a pleasant cafe area, and another area with sofas to have a quiet drink while waiting. I like being able to book your seat online days ahead. Sometimes the films... More

I go the Picturehouse at least once a month. I'm not going to review films here, but want to recommend the place for its vibrant atmosphere. The whole place is buzzing, and the restaurant/bar area is great. Service is a little slow and having to queue down the steps for the bar is a bit of a pain, but it's... More

Great choice of films, very relaxed feel to the place with the bar upstairs and the comfortable small sized cinema screening rooms. Lovely staff ,very enthusiastic, always happy to look after you at the point of collection and buying snacks area.Its a wonderful Art Deco building and full credit for keeping this type of independent art house cinema alive.

Lots of good points: great choice of independent films including the annual summer film festival & free previews for members; a nice atmosphere & decent bar area; they treat you like adults (ie. you can bring alcohol into screenings & they don't try to confiscate your belongings!) The only bad points for me are the fact it gets very busy,... More

good place to have a rest, study and chilling. There is a comfortable sofa. Film theatre is next to this cafe. You may spend a nice day off around this place.

.... we used to smuggle a bottle of port and enough glasses into Cambridge Cinemas - now I can relax in a comfortable seat with a LARGE glass of decent , affordable red wine and watch good films in the centre of the city .

Attended several films during Cambridge Film Festival here. Great theatres. Bar area a bit old fashioned, dimly lit, and not too comfortable. But once inside, theatre seats are comfortable, atmosphere intimate, sound quality good.
