I absolutely love this venue. Great films. Friendly staff and no heads stuck in front of your view. A good selection of films and the matinee sessions have an added bonus of a free cup of tea or coffee.

I try to go to No 6 at least once a month - it needs your patronage !! Great screen, it has a bar, staff are friendly, and the films are great and more varied than your typical multiplex

We love this place. It is unusual and cool. Unlike the arthouse cinema in Chichester, it attracts a wide age range. It shows films the multiplexes don't bother with as well as some popular choices. Going to No.6 Cinema is a bit of an adventure....More

This building seems to have much going on during the day, but in the evening it is an arts cinema plus bar and cafe. We arrived late, but were guided politely and masterfully through the passages and stairs to the cinema. Great big screen! Super...More
