“Great place”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Love the non blockbuster films and the links to National theatre live. You can pick your seats and great little coffee bar in here as well. Excellent choice of films. The temperature and sound levels are also much better than at the big chain blockbuster places.

“A true film-lover's cinema”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Great place to watch movies, with a clientele which is there to watch the films and rarely gives cause for irritation. Almost the perfect cinema-going experience. The only annoyance is the lack of cup-holders in the seats, but hey, it's a cinema where you can take a glass of wine from the bar into the screening, so who cares?

“A cinema with ‘soul’ and a great café.”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

I could hardly wait to renew my membership with this cinema. It is such a friendly environment in which to view serious films and at the same time drink a glass of wine or a cold beer whilst watching! The café is also open during the day to drop in for a drink and to read the paper. I particularly like sitting in a window seat and watching Cambridge life passing by on the street below. Food in the cafe and bar is discounted for members and the staff are friendly. This is the most comfortable ambience for serious cinema goers to be found in Cambridge and for far around.

“The only cinema to view in Cambridge”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

A great cinema, showing all the films an intelligent person would want to see. Membership to picturehouse cinemas will give you a ticket discount and also a discount in the bar. This is cinema for grown ups so you can take your wine in with you. The cafe sells great snacks, cakes and coffee alongside alcohol and they also make a mean pancake. Atmosphere is liberal Cambridge intellectual. Yes, the loos are grubby when the cinema is very busy but there are some things in life we forgive. Part of the fun when coming out of here late is fighting through the fall out from the huge Wetherspoons below, and the gothic views this affords of 'binge Britain' on a Saturday night. I will keep going here again and again because I love it. Simple.
