Phoenix is Leicester’s centre for independent cinema, art and digital culture. We are a charity.
In our two modern cinema screens we show everything from micro-budget independent films to the latest Hollywood blockbusters, and we regularly organise festivals and events.
Our regularly changing art programme presents work by local and international artists, and our education work helps people of all ages to learn about, and create their own, film and art.
At Phoenix, we believe film and art have the power to enhance our lives. Watching a movie or visiting a gallery can entertain and inspire us, offering new perspectives on our lives and those of others.
They deserve to be experienced somewhere special – which is why we work hard to ensure Phoenix is a place everyone can feel welcome and inspired.
While we build our new Café Bar, our temporary foyer bar serves drinks and snacks to take into your screening, plus a grab-and-go range of freshly-made wraps, sandwiches and salads. Our Café Bar will reopen when the Phoenix 2020 expansion project is completed.
For many customers, our staff make the difference. With a clear passion for our work, you’ll find many are studying film or art locally, or involved in the wider creative community Phoenix attracts.
As a local charity, all our earnings go back into developing our creative programmes, enabling us to reach out to more people.
We hope to see you soon.
