Our Story

Opened in 1996, Exeter Picturehouse sits within the city walls on the site of a 1930s bus garage. During exploration prior to redevelopment, the ground was found to contain Roman artefacts. Architects Burrell Foley Fischer designed a stylish, modern cinema in sympathy with its historic location, and which had to take into account its position on a steep hill. The light and airy first-floor café-bar offers sweeping views over the Devonshire countryside.
