It initially functioned as a news theatre open from midday and showing hourly programmes of documentaries and newsreels. Feature films were first shown in 1939, the first two being "Peg of Old Drury" starring Anna Neagle followed by "Oh Mr Porter" starring Will Hay. The cinema thrived on local support throughout the years as other Bath cinema venues closed and in 1979 the former scenery store and lounge area were converted into a second screen. In spite of many refurbishments to keep the cinema up-to-date with digital sound and the latest projection technology, and a renewal of the seats to give the very best comfort levels, The Little Theatre has retained the charm and welcoming warmth of a 1930's cinema, including a luxury balcony with sofas in the main auditorium. « less

Restored old theatre to a cinema, but looks like to could still be used as a theatre or conference centre. The art deco style and refurbished seating, the sweet kiosk that serves, wine, beer, snacks, tea, coffee, soft drinks plus popcorn - but on a smaller scale all added to the charm of this independent cinema - although I enjoy...

Despite having an Odeon Cinema in the city, we consider this as our local cinema and if they aren't showing a film, then it's clearly not worth seeing! We've seen many films at this cinema and can't fault it. It's more of an experience that just going to see a film. They have vintage Sunday movies which we've seen often... More

Small and intimate. Comfortable seats and good value. Interesting choice of non mainstream films. Staff really helpful and a scheme to be a member is available - will get you discounts on future tickets. I should have joined as they have 3 cinemas in London too. A much more grown up way of going to the cinema rather than the... More

Brilliant ambience. One of the must visit places if you like old and classic places. Squeaky wooden steps, comfy chairs and bar serving wine only adds to the charm of this place.

A good alternative for a civil ceremony, especially for those who can create and play their own film... Comfortable, and niche.

This a a great place to go in Bath to watch a film. The selection of films & shows shown here are varied & interesting & the seating is comfortable. The screens are modern & fully digital. It is so nice to go somewhere which is not a chain & which has character. The Little Theatre has bags of character... More

Don't think you are going to something as glamorous as the Theatre Royal Bath. The Theatre Royal rules supreme but here, in this little place you can see a whole variety of shows and films you have missed. I have not been there for a while but on one occasion we had not been able to get tickets for the... More
