About
The Little Theatre Cinema was built by community theatre pioneer Consuelo de Reyes and her husband in 1935. 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.

had 3 days in Bath and can recommend this gem of a cinema, cannot understand why anyone would want to go to the Odeon when this place seems to open all day! Big comfy seats and excellent choice of films.
Just what a visit to the cinema should be.

What an enjoyable personal cinema. Not the faceless hi tech unfriendly place you may encounter at the larger cinema groups. Service was personal and friendly. The actual theatre we used was very pleasant. Small but tastefully decorated and very comfortable.

My son and I were in Bath over a weekend and were looking for things to do in the evening. The local Odeon was full of rubbish blockbusters and big name films which didn't appeal to either of us. I found Little Theatre and during the day made a visit to see what it was like. It's an attractive cinema, though quite small as the name gives away. There's a small shop on the entrance area which sells popcorn and other snacks. We watched an early evening showing of Knives Out (highly recommended!) and had allocated seating as it was very busy.

Even though we were in the back row it was comfortable, we could see the screen clearly and it was loud enough to make the dialogue out. Everyone was very chatty during the adverts and trailers but soon quietened down when the film started.

Friendly staff and customers alike - I love places like these and if they hadn't been showing the film we wouldn't have had anything else to do so was well worth the visit - highly recommended!

We decided to see Knives Out during our short stay in Bath. We just turned up and bought our tickets for the 17:45 showing. There are no seat reservations but we had plenty of empty seats to choose from. This is a small (as the name says) but very comfortable cinema, and the staff are very friendly. Highly recommended.

My wife and I fell in love with the Little Theatre as a wedding venue when we first went to see it. We wanted an unconventionally beautiful wedding venue and this ticks all of the boxes. The building itself has 1920's charm and the staff have all of the additions to make it look really special on the day. The staff were also so accommodating in the lead up to the big day and could not have been better on the big day itself. They made the day so special and we can't thank them enough.

While on holiday in Bath we saw that they were showing a classic black and white film - it was so nice to take a few hours out in this cosy cinema. Our screen was up several flights of stairs, which seemed tricky for a number of visitors so beware if you have accessibility concerns.

The Little Theatre is a real find. The Victorian/Georgian theatre is a real step back in time and comfortable too. It is lovely to visit a theatre that does not have a sound system that deafens to the point of being uncomfortable. There are two screens and the lower one is fine for anybody with a mobility problem but apparently the upper one would be difficult. The variety of things that the theatre screens is variable with a good collection of opera, drama and ballet. A real find!
