Excellent choice of interesting films. Comfortable seating in the theatres. However, be very wary of the prices for drinks. We were charged over 8 pounds for a medium sized glass of wine.

The Arts Picture House is the best place to watch movies in Cambridge. It still has the feel of an authentic cinema and a great range of independent movies. However there is now a real bargain on offer on Monday evenings. You can already watch...More
