The Cube

The Cube

Independent cinema which also hosts regular gigs and music.

The Cube is a real asset to Bristol, an independent cinema run by volunteers with original programming. In addition to films and live music the 105 seat cinema is also used for workshops and discussions.

In essence The Cube shows the films you actually want to see, avoiding pure 'arthouse' programming. Expect to find Hollywood's (occasional) decent offerings listed alongside quality foreign and independent films as well as a few cult classics. Wednesday mornings (11am) is BabyCinema where babies are welcome while Wednesday evenings is BlueScreen - a sort of open mic night but for short films.

Gigs and live music
While often folk or indie based gig listings for The Cube can really vary. The level of crowd interaction at the Cube can make it a great venue to catch one off shows from electronica producers to experimental artists.
