History

The Little Theatre Cinema was built by community theatre pioneer Consuelo de Reyes and her husband in 1935. It initially functioned as a news theatre open from midday and showing hourly programmes of documentaries and newsreels. Feature films were first shown in 1939, the first two being “Peg of Old Drury” starring Anna Neagle followed by “Oh Mr Porter” starring Will Hay. The cinema thrived on local support throughout the years as other Bath cinema venues closed and in 1979 the former scenery store and lounge area were converted into a second screen. In spite of many refurbishments to keep the cinema up-to-date with digital sound and the latest projection technology, and a renewal of the seats to give the very best comfort levels, The Little Theatre has retained the charm and welcoming warmth of a 1930’s cinema, including a luxury balcony with sofas in the main auditorium.
The Little Theatre now has a third screen at Komedia, a stones throw away from the main building offering bean bag seating as a fun alternative, as well as a more traditional cinema experience.
