Plymouth Arts Centre is a nationally acclaimed centre for contemporary art, independent cinema, and creative learning.
We commission work by national and international artists, working with them to develop a unique, challenging and varied programme of exhibitions.
Our cinema is independent, so we hand-pick all of our films, from the best of arthouse cinema from around the world to those blockbusters that you wouldn’t want to watch anywhere else. We stream live theatre from NT Live and RSC Live. We have Bringing in Baby and Demntia Friendly screenings. In the summer we go on tour for our annual Open Air Cinema screenings around iconic Plymouth locations like Royal William Yard, Tinside Lido and Mount Edgcumbe.
Learning is at the heart of all of our activities. Plymouth Arts Centre is a creative place to socialise, and we want to enable as many people as possible to experience art, and feel inspired, confident and thrilled by what they encounter. We run regular Creative Play workshops for toddlers and their parent, and Family Art Workshops.
We believe that culture changes the world for the better.
