Take a trip back in time and experience the excitement and opulence of the golden era of film - today’s technology with yesterday’s ambience.

Alice’s Egyptian Picture Theatre hosts a 365 days of the year “World Cinema” film festival. Every year Alice combs the world’s film festivals, bypassing questionable mainstream release to focus on the good, the great, the rare and the unusual to bring a celebration of film to the screen. 

A rainbow’s end for discerning movie lovers! Based in the Old High Street Post Office, Alice offers an exclusive 38 seat Arthouse cinema designed with Egyptian flair. Comfort is paramount! Sink back into luxurious seating and enjoy a choice of snacks and drinks from Alice’s Nibble Nook or neighbouring C1 Espresso’s fully licensed cafe. 

Ring Alice to make a booking, or you can purchase tickets online. Alice also has over 42,000 film titles on DVD. Housing Godzone's motherlode of arthouse, foreign, cult, classic, documentary and hard-to-find titles on VHS and DVD, Alice can truly boast to have created a cinephile's Pot o' Gold. 

Private Cinema hire is also available, with catering options.
