We expanded our Open Air Cinema programme this year to incorporate an extra weekend at Tinside Lido, due to the popularity of these events. Because of this, our Looe Street cinema has been closed slightly longer than in previous years, and will reopen at the beginning of October. The new programme will go on sale mid-September. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

We have waived the £1.50 online booking fee for our Friends, as a thank you for supporting Plymouth Arts Centre. This applies to all current and new Friends.
