Phoenix Square - Cinema and digital arts centre, Attractions, See & Do in Leicester

Click to enlarge images below:




Phoenix is Leicester’s centre for independent cinema, art and digital culture.

Experience cinema with a difference! Films deserve to be experienced somewhere special – which is why the team works hard to ensure Phoenix is a place everyone can feel welcome and inspired. The two modern cinema screens show everything from micro-budget independent films to the latest Hollywood blockbusters, and they host regular festivals and events.

A changing art programme presents work by local and international artists, and education activities help people of all ages to learn about and create their own film and art. Phoenix believes that film and art have the power to enhance lives.

If you fancy a drink, dinner or somewhere to meet friends, the café bar is open all day serving freshly-cooked food and drinks that can be taken into the cinema screen if you wish.

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