Cinema City: History meets State-of-the-Art

Cinema City is steeped in heritage, both from a cultural point of view and from the aspect of its historical setting.

The Country’s oldest independent art house cinema, Cinema City is housed within and on the site of the elegant and fascinating Suckling House and adjacent Stuart Hall in the historical heart of Norwich. Despite sympathetic renovation and restoration through the ages, properties were recorded on the site as early as the 13th Century.

An essential stamping ground for film buffs, Cinema City is a Picturehouse Cinema, showing the BEST in independent, foreign language, classic and quality mainstream cinema. Plus filmmaker Q&A’s, exclusive documentaries…..and much MUCH more!!

Able to compete favourably with any more recently built cinema, Cinema City boasts 3 superior screens, state of the art sound equipment and digital projection facilities, a relaxing bar area and a top class restaurant. Licensed auditoriums mean you can relax with a glass of wine while watching your film – very civilised.

Special screenings for the over-60s, children, Parents with babies and people on the autism spectrum and their families serve to illustrate how welcoming and accommodating Cinema City is.

In addition to being an atmospheric and well-loved venue for watching films in Norwich, Cinema City offers exciting practical courses for schools and the general public, designed to stimulate and enhance appreciation of moving image culture in an informal, accessible style.
