Phoenix Leicester

Phoenix is Leicester’s centre for independent cinema, art and digital culture. Films and art deserve to be experienced somewhere special – which is why the whole Phoenix team works hard to make Phoenix a place where everyone can feel welcome and inspired.

Following a multi-million pound expansion, Phoenix now boast four state-of-the-art cinema screens, and shows everything from micro-budget independent films to the latest Hollywood blockbusters, plus film festivals and special events. And as an independent venue, the team handpicks Phoenix’s cinema programme specifically for Leicester audiences, so you’ll see things at Phoenix that aren’t screening in any other local cinemas.

With two superb galleries, Phoenix’s digital art programme presents exciting and innovative work by local and international artists; and short courses, workshops and activities provide opportunities for people of all ages to learn about and create their own film and art.

Our newly opened Café Bar offers a stylish and comfortable place to see friends and relax over a meal and drinks, or meet with clients and catch up on some work.

Phoenix believes that film and art have the power to enhance lives, and for many customers Phoenix staff make the difference. With a clear passion for their work, you’ll find many are studying film or art locally, or are involved in the wider creative community Phoenix attracts.

And as a local charity, all earnings go back into developing Phoenix’s creative programmes, enabling them to reach out to more people.

We hope to see you soon.
