In 2015, Exeter Phoenix opened its new bespoke cinema space, Studio 74. The only truly independent cinema in Exeter, this intimate and beautifully designed 74 seat screening space presents a rolling programme of first rate independent film and latest arthouse releases within a vibrant arts setting, complete with a buzzing Café Bar.
A Flourishing Handpicked Cinema Programme
Screenings take place most evenings, with a programme handpicked by people who are passionate about film. Each season you’ll find the latest independent releases alongside the best of international cinema and eye-opening documentary. Look out for exciting film festivals, immersive film experiences and opportunities to get under the skin of the films you love, with post-screening director Q&As.
No Need To Dig Deep
Studio 74 offers quality film experiences to cinema fans for just a fraction of the price of the mainstream multiplex, with tickets at just £6 across the board.
In a fantastic show of support during the building of the cinema, South West film fans voted in their thousands to help us secure funding from the Marks & Spencers’ green energy fund. The result? Studio 74 is making history as the only cinema in the region that is powered partly by solar energy. The fund paid for the installation of solar panels and other energy saving technology throughout the screening space, paving the way for a green future for arts in the city.
Studio 74 is no ordinary cinema. As proud supporters of independent film, we offer exposure for emerging local and national filmmakers and treat our audiences to a unique and diverse viewing experience. Watch out for handpicked short films prior to selected feature screenings. Exeter Phoenix also offers support to budding film makers through advice, training and equipment hire.

Exeter Phoenix is a charity, and we couldn’t do what we do without our team of dedicated cinema volunteers. Find out how to get involved here.
