The Bath Forum, 1A Forum Buildings, Bath, Avon BA1 1UG
Bath has a vast trove of beautiful architecture, but there’s always a new old treasure to discover – The Forum isn’t part of the city’s heritage trail, but remains an incredible building. The former Art Deco cinema is administrated by Bath City Church.
Having opened its doors to the public as a cinema in 1934, this remarkable venue celebrated its 80th birthday in May 2014. The cinema remained in operation until 1969; the site was also a bingo hall and a dance school, but had fallen into disrepair before Bath City Church took the building over in 1989. The biggest venue in Bath, and third largest in the South West.
Today, The Forum represents a true reflection of typical Art Deco-era splendour including lacquered wood fixtures and fittings and gold-leafed flourishes all subtly vying for your attention. In the elegant auditorium, the iconic green cinema seats offer a spacious, luxurious audience experience.
