The Little Theatre Cinema was built by community theatre pioneer Consuelo de Reyes and her husband in 1935. It initially functioned as a news theatre open from midday and showing hourly programmes of documentaries and newsreels. Feature films were first shown in 1939, the first two being "Peg of Old Drury" starring Anna Neagle followed by "Oh Mr Porter" starring Will Hay. The cinema thrived on local support throughout the years as other Bath cinema venues closed and in 1979 the former scenery store and lounge area were converted into a second screen. In spite of many refurbishments to keep the cinema up-to-date with digital sound and the latest projection technology, and a renewal of the seats to give the very best comfort levels, The Little Theatre has retained the charm and welcoming warmth of a 1930's cinema, including a luxury balcony with sofas in the main auditorium.

Does what it claims. A cute little theatre showing non-mainstream movies. Friendly and welcoming, the staff are as charming as the venue - it's like going around a friends house for drinks and a movie.

I try to support local where and when I can. The Little is the only independent cinema left in Bath and for this reason deserves support. It hosts a good range of movies, independent film, documentary and classics (classic disneys on a Sunday, that sort...More

Hello there, Thank you so much for your feedback of The Little. As you may know, we are an 80year old building and so although we try to tier the seating as much as we can, there's only so much we can do, especially being...More

Haven't been to a cinema like this in years. Lovely place very comfy seats (better than modern cinemas) and a decent size screen! Film choice obviously reduced given size of the venue but good for a different cinematic experience! Nice day out good bar/snacks

What a pleasant surprise, a little gem tucked away. We were staying around the corner at The Gainsborough and came upon this. It was the perfect way to spend a winter night since most things seem to close early in Bath (maybe because it's winter)....More

I went to see LaLa Land on early release in the downstairs theatre. The sound system was good and there was a clear view of the screen. The chairs are comfy and there is much more leg room than in many of the modern cinemas....More
