Cinemas around Bournemouth


Exeter Cres, Bournemouth BH2 5AU, UK – 0333 014 4501

Really great place. Pay a bit extra for the recliner seats, they were fantastic, like being at home. Lots of staff on hand to help out with ticket machines and to advise what screens are where. Definitely recommend.

Love this place. All the seats have a fantastic view of the screen but I wouldn't pay more for the premium seats. They seem a little close to the screen (although they recline)

6D Cinema

8 Post Office Rd, Bournemouth BH1 1BA, UK – 01202 280860

The guys who run this place are lovely and go above and beyond with customer service. The screenings aren't cheap but there's loads to choose from and it's a lot of fun! Really makes you feel like you're in the screen. Great place to take kids as there are some real child friendly movies and a great place for adults as there are some seriously intense ones too! Be prepared to want to do 2 or 3!

Absolutely amazing experience I won't ever forget. Definitely worth £5. My partner and I were screaming during the movie and I remember things touching my feet. Brilliant customer service which provided me with in depth detail on the movies and which were the best sellers. Would definitely recommend, but is not for people who suffer motion sickness (like myself).

Pavilion Dance

Bournemouth BH1 2BU, UK – 01202 203630

I was cheerfully greeted into the over 50s class this morning. As a member of the seniors programme with Queensland Ballet I was very happy with the standards of the class and teacher. Thank you. Vicki Wilson Brisbane Australia.

A real asset for the Town. Do make use of it, not just to learn how to dance but also to see touring artists, exhibitions or shows.

Theatres for Bournemouth

Shelley Theatre

Shelley Manor, Beechwood Ave, Bournemouth BH5 1LX, UK – 01202 413600

Had a wonderful morning celebrating Mum and Dad's Diamond Wedding. Great service, superb cake and coffee. Lovely venue, thanks to the Shelley Cafe team

Cafe and Theatre. Open all day. Excellent service. Free Parking. Wonderful food and wine. Sat outside on the terrace in the sun. I recommend the Ploughmans. Hidden gem of a Theatre well worth a visit. Thank you for a good afternoon.

Bournemouth Little Theatre Club

11 Jameson Rd, Bournemouth BH9 2QD, UK – 01202 513361

Such a lovely intimate venue. Offers a really inexpensive theatre night out. Even the bar was cheap. Saw two excellent one act plays and we thoroughly enjoyed them both. Will definitely go there again.

Absolutely fantastic venue, this intimate theatre offers regular, brilliant shows. Amazing value, especially if you take annual membership.

Big Little Theatre School

2A Harvey Rd, Bournemouth BH5 2AD, UK – 01202 434499

The way that all the children are supported and nurtured to be the best they can be both on and off the stage is amazing. My son has been a part of the Big Little family for years and it that time I have seen many children develop into amazing performers, I cannot recommend Big Little enough.

BLT is an amazing family to belong to. Fantastic teaching from industry professionals from primary age to 21yrs. Whether just wanting to perform in some way for fun or to be supported to take your skills further on to drama/performing art school, BLT school is a fantastic place to be.
