Our Story

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 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. During his time exiled in Bath, Ethiopian Emporer Haile Selassie was a frequent visitor.

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, The Little Theatre Cinema has retained the charm and welcoming warmth of a 1930s cinema, including a balcony in the main auditorium.
