Upcoming Events

Please be part of our Crowdfunder to raise £10,000 for the Future of Plymouth Arts Cinema. We need your help to make our cinema a sustainable and affordable venue for our whole community.

Make Your Pledge

As the cost of living crisis bites, we don’t want people to break the habit of coming to the cinema because it’s something they can no longer afford. There’s no better way to watch a film than to make an event of it and see it on the big screen, with an audience. You won’t be asked any questions if you choose this price point, just choose the Budget Ticket option when you book.

Enjoy fantastic benefits as well as supporting us to make independent cinema accessible for all.

Whether you’re a Supporter, Friend or Champion, become a member of our community at a level that suits you.
