Lovely cinema

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 !

I went by myself to watch a documentary as the rest of clan deem my tastes to boring! I was slightly concerned that I would look odd going to the cinema by myself, but the Arts made me feel much better. It is a lovely small cinema with 3 screens showing a variety of films from the obscure to the... More

We have visited twice - once to see an Argentinian comedy, once for a blockbuster movie. Both times we were charmed by the helpful staff, quirky food and great films on offer. We became members and intend to regularly see fantastic world cinema releases. To anyone who thinks it expensive I suggest they try going to London. The running costs... More

I don't care if this is a slightly more intimate place to go and watch a film, but at £9.50 for a large glass of wine this place is so pretentiously, hideously overpriced that I shall never be returning. For the pleasure of being ripped off, there were sticky tables, dirty toilets and disgusting floors, with rubbish, popcorn and other... More

The cinema is pleasant but the staff at the bar have a serious attitude problem. On more than one occasion have been almost embarrassed by how rude they are. Literally, sighing and eye rolling at customers. Come on management, sort out your front of house.

Nice little, cosy cinema. Not impersonal like the chains. I it's a film you want to see it's better to visit the Picture House. Well worth a visit.

Great selection of films. Great location. Good seats. Cramped bar and ticket area. Screens could be bigger. £22.00 for two tickets!

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
