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!

“Whether with a group or going solo, even a film novice will feel like they’re part of something special in this beautiful venue… friendly staff make this one venue in the city that people keep returning to.”
“If Plymouth Arts Centre didn’t exist then we would have to invent it. I never cease to be intrigued.”
“Fantastic evening watching Dirty Dancing at the Royal William Yard. Awesome atmosphere very well run can’t wait to do it again!!”
“Bringing in Baby has been the highlight of my maternity leave and I cannot recommend it highly enough if you are in need of a treat (which… let’s face it, you probably are!)”
