What is The Pantiles Cinema Project?

Our mission is to open an Independent Cinema on The Pantiles, for the people of Tunbridge Wells so they can enjoy an intimate and carefully crafted experience. 

We aim to create a cinema for the people, by the people. It’ll be an inclusive project that listens to local people and local businesses in order to create something we can all be a part of and be proud of.

An intimate cinema experience

A boutique, 2 screen, intimate cinema and bar experience will provide the perfect setting for locals to enjoy a mix of blockbusting movies, independent film and local filmmaker projects, as well as providing a venue for private and corporate hires, too.

We’re seeking passionate supporters and partners.

We’re at the very beginning of an exciting journey, but we won’t make it on our own. If you’re a passionate cinema goer with great ideas, a local business that would like to hear about partnering opportunities or someone who’d like to invest in our project, we’d love to hear from you.

Who are The Pantiles Cinema Project?

We’re a small team of founders and project managers that share a passion for cinema and a vision for a people-driven cinema experience.
