About Arts Picturehouse, Cambridge

After walking for hours around the city and exploring every nook and cranny, wouldn’t you like to relax and just calm your mind for a while? After all that culture hunting and history, it’s probably time for some entertainment and what’s better than a movie? But don’t you hate it when you’re at the movies and there’s a little kid right behind you, bawling away? Or when you’re queuing up to get a ticket and standing in the line is more fraught with peril than the movie you’re about to watch? What you really need is some relaxation but guess what? Movie lovers, there is hope! The Cambridge Arts Picturehouse promises to give you a fabulous movie watching experience, noise free, hassle free and what’s more, you can take a glass of wine into the viewing room too!

In 1937, the Regal Cinema opened up on this very spot, but was closed down in 1997. Two years later, the complex was taken over by Wetherspoons, with the largest pub in all of England inhabiting the ground floor. The three-screened Arts Picture House occupies the remaining space.

From the outside, this classy cinema hall stands out in its green and ochre colours, its nameplates framing that of its in-house restaurant. As you step in, luxurious mauve paint blends in with tasteful designs and the spaciousness of the restaurant catches your eye. The menu is quite tasteful and they serve up alcoholic beverages as well.

The movies that play are mostly serious drama or art house movies, with work by the likes of Richard Linklater up for viewing. There’s also a brilliant collection of operas and ballets, as well as plays from the National. You can read movie and play reviews online, check out the latest listings and even book tickets, all from the convenience of your own home. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Cambridge itinerary 1 day.

Arts Picturehouse, Cambridge Reviews

  • Very happy to have a good arts cinema like this in the centre of town. The film select is great. Always show the blockbusters while also making space for the smaller and less known films. Seats are comfortable and the snack select is great. A+ for being able to take drinks from the bar to your screen.

  • I'm a very big fan of arthouse house Film and this cinema provides a very intimate setting within which to experience the films they have on offer. I'm very appreciative of it's aesthetic, it's a small space, even down to the thatres but it's not likely to be be seen as a problem by patrons since there's almost no chance the theatre would find itself flooded with foot traffic on any particular occasion. The possibility of Hollywood blockbusters being screened here is exceptionally low and that's very much to the locations credit. I've only seen the like elsewhere in New York City.

  • Lovely little cinema. Great pricing, nice friendly staff. Decent sized screen for the "big scream" which is blfor the parent and babies showings. Caters for all ages. Nice food, and fairly priced as well as the drinks. Will definitely be going here for more movies

  • So lucky to have such a great cinema in Cambridge. Their film festival is amazing, one of the best in the country apparently, and their special screenings and spot on art house selection makes it a dream for cinephiles. It is pricey though, even with a membership.

  • Always a pleasure. But it is a bit strange being comfortable with people drinking in the cinema but having no where to put your drinks. I'm not expecting the lazy boy recliners they have in The but somewhere to put your drink would be appreciated.
