Built by community theatre pioneer Consuelo de Reyes and her husband in 1935, the Little Theatre has remained in the same family since, retaining some of the decorative features of a typical 1930’s cinema while more recently undergoing a discreet conversion into a two-screen arthouse cinema and is now part of the wonderful Picturehouse group.
This cosy little gem is situated in a small square off the main street in Bath and has a classical facade of cream stone, standing in front at dusk you can look up through the projection room windows and watch the spools of the projectors spinning round, all the staff seem to have been here forever.
If you have ever seen “the smallest show on earth” then you know what to expect here, its cosy and lovely and very old fashioned, except its well maintained, has a great arthouse film programme and since the nearby Robbins Cinema closed its likely to be Bath’s only independent cinema. The nearby ABC Beau Nash has now closed when owners Odeon opened a new six-plex just down the road.
Long live the Little Theatre Cinema!
