This charming cinema located in the historic sector of Bury St Edmunds, delivers a strong mix of arthouse, independent and quality mainstream films.

Now boasting a new stylish Box Office area and a spectacular 180 stadium seated Premier Screen with a full-size 4k laser screen and state-of-the art projector, this three screen cinema is arguably the best in town.

Its enhanced Screen Arts programme includes live performances from the Royal Opera House, Bolshoi Ballet, Met.Opera, National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, Branagh Theatre and the English National Opera.

Discover Cinema is a weekly strand showing vintage classics, art-house gems and riveting documentaries.

There are regular family films on Saturdays at 10.30 for which tickets are just £2.50 each and weekly Parent & Baby screenings too.

The cinema also boasts a fantastic membership scheme which comes with a bundle of benefits including FREE tickets, 10% discount on food and drink plus up to £2 discount on tickets. So if you plan on returning to see a further three films in the coming year, the membership pays for itself.

The cinema offers a tasteful and refined theatre-like experience where quality snacks and drinks from a well-stocked licensed bar can be taken into the auditorium to enjoy from comfortable reclining seats. There’s also a diverse menu to choose from to enjoy either before or after a performance or can be pre-booked to order for the interval of any live events.

The added value of dinner and drinks to your cinematic experience is due to its stylish licensed restaurant and bar – No.4.
