“The best cinema around”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

This is a cinema where you don't get distracted by being uncomfortable as you are in total luxury. Additionally having a nice drink and relaxing while you watch the film just adds to that unique experience. The staff are also very friendly.

“The best cinema in the Southwest”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

A great cinema;although it has only 2 screens they are extremely comfortable and there are sofa seats. Membership is very worthwhile especially for a couple.
On Tuesday afternoons they screen art house and foreign language films and regularly screen leftfield films. The cafe /bar is a bonus;very good basic food with an excellent selection of vegetarian fare. Pizzas and pies are available too. There is live music on a Thursday night and quiz nights every other Sunday.Whats not to like!!

“Super comfy seats and great films!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

They always have good films on, lots of edgy stuff too that you wouldn't find in your average Odeon... plus the chairs are much more comfortable. You can recline a little and actually have leg room, yet the price is the same, if not cheaper in some cases, than other cinemas.

“The best cinema in the City”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

This cinema is lovely - really nice and you get treated properly.

Nothing is too much for the friendly attentive staff, and its a pleasure to go along.

However it is expensive and does not have the latest movies.

Still very good and highly recommended.

“One of the best cinemas.”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

The Exeter Picturehouse is one of the best places to see a movie. It's small but beautifully formed. Enjoy a pre movie drink in the upstairs bar. The wine list is excellent. The coffee perfect and the pizzas smell wonderful. There are two screens, each really good with large comfy seats but our favourite is the one with the sofas. Truly great. The Picturehouse offers membership which is good value for money. The staff are pleasant and knowledgable.
