“Nice place, but go early if you want a drink”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

I have been to this cinema on numerous occasions. It does get surprisingly busy - especially on Orange Wednesdays. The bar especially is usually packed - and rightly so as the food (particularly the pizzas) is fantastic. Service can be a bit on the slow side and they take an age to actually show the damn film but aside from that it's a great place.

“Excellent small arthouse cinema”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Exeter's Picturehouse is a real treat. It has two auditoria, a bar and eating area, plus a small gallery with changing exhibitions. It also offers a regular film quiz and is a popular venue for film buffs as well as people who simply like going to the movies. The seats are comfortable, and the air-conditioning effective if sometimes a little noisy in the quiet bits! The range of films is eclectic and inclusive, and there are showings for mums and babies, retired folk and other groups.

“Movies in comfort”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Quite apart from the films on offer, ranging from classics to Batman, this is a comfortableand lively venue with good food and drinks and regular live entertainment. What would you rather take into a movie; popcorn or a nice glass of red wine?

“The best cinema in Exeter”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

If you like a variety of films then this is the only place to see them. 2 screens that are big enough to make going an occasion and there is also link ups with opera, theatre and more.

They have quizes, music and a nice little cafe / bar that sells great snacks and pizzas.

“Not cheap but quality”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

The pizza here is very good and so is the service. I would recommend eating here either before/after a film or just dining out.
