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.

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle. A small movie palace with character. Gooseberry Tuesdays and Orange Wednesdays

I / we have visited the Little Theatre many times over past years, and since the takeover of it by a large group it has improved. It has better seating but is still chaotic around the shop area and is still very warm inside -...More

It is a little old cinema that shows speciality films, some long forgotten, some of special interest and all valuable and educational. The prices are very low and the experience is unique.

Balcony in screen 1 was a new thing for us - very nice to be in a cinema on a sofa! Helpful volunteers and pleasant atmosphere in a quirky but worldly atmosphere.

Terrific selection of films, intimate atmosphere and a way to see good film and avoid the horrors of the multiplex.
