Welcome to Plymouth's only independent cinema.

Plymouth Arts Cinema is passionate about films, and we want as many people as possible to experience cinema and feel inspired, challenged and thrilled by what they encounter.

Plymouth Arts Cinema has an established history in the city since 1947. In early 2019 we moved from our original home of Plymouth Arts Centre on Looe street, to Plymouth College of Art’s main campus at Tavistock Place. You can expect a warm welcome at our brand new, custom built 118 seat cinema.

From foreign and arthouse films to more mainstream fare, the Plymouth Arts Centre Cinema programmer Anna Navas picks the best of what’s around, along with the occasional classic to enjoy on the big screen.

So take a glass of wine, beer or a hot drink from the café-bar into the cinema, relax into the comfy seats, and enjoy the film!
