Our main venue and above the city centre streets, the Arts Picturehouse provides a hub for filmmakers and film fans alike, with a café/bar, friendly staff, and the most varied programme of films in the city.


The Cambridge Arts Picturehouse is a three screen Picturehouse cinema in the heart of the city, less than 5 minutes walk from the bus station and the Grand Arcade shopping area.

Tucked away in a loft above the city-centre streets, the Arts Picturehouse cafe-bar is the ideal place to relax. Whether you’re waiting for the next hotly tipped Oscar sensation, enjoying the free Wi-Fi during a meeting, or simply catching up with friends, you’ll find a warm welcome.

Come and enjoy anything from tea and cake to a full meal before or after your film. Our coffee is Fairtrade, organic and Rainforest Alliance Certified, and our real ales and menu ingredients are sourced locally. Everything on our menu is home-made, and we think our burgers will be best you've ever tasted!

Cafe/bar service times: daily, from noon until just after the start of the last film.

Members enjoy a 10% discount on all food and drink at the cafe-bar – please show your Membership card when ordering (cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer).
