Vue vs Small Independent Cinema in Historic Dockyard

Posted on -

Back to all posts

A few years ago, Vue reduced its ticket prices to £4.99 which had a serious impact on No6’s income. Of course we understood that if you were on a tight budget the offer was most attractive. But now Vue has upped their prices again, we hope that you will come to No6 to see the more mainstream films which overlap with the multiplexes.
If people support our more mainstream films we can offer a more diverse range of smaller films, independent arthouse films which otherwise would not be shown in our local area. Some films will not have a wide appeal but will be valued by some sections of the community and wouldn’t normally be shown in our area.

Help us champion the smaller films and ensure that No6 remains a vibrant, thriving part of Portsmouth’s cultural scene.

Illuminating the life and genius of David Bowie, one of the most prolific and influential artists of our time.

Ticket prices for our matinees screenings are slightly cheaper than our evening screenings as we don’t have to cover the cost of security in the afternoon, it’s a saving that we are only too happy to pass on. We also include free tea/coffee and biscuits. The screening will have subtitles for those who find them useful. Moonage Daydream on Thursday afternoon shows the adventurous and creative spirit of David Bowie, some familiar, some revelatory.

The enigmatic life – and loves – of Hilma af Klint, one of the Western world’s first abstract artists.

We know that you are an artsy lot that have really embraced many of the films we have shown about artists; from Clarice Cliff to Eric Ravilious, from Van Gogh to Ann Sutton. We know you’ll love Hilma who is recognised as a pioneer of abstract art, a true original who challenged the male art world hegemony. Hilma is our evening film on Thursday.

When 17-year-old Paul joins the Western Front in World War I, his initial excitement is soon shattered by the grim reality of life in the trenches.

All Quiet on the Western Front on Friday night is an anti war drama which transcends the bombast of propaganda, the most powerful anti-war statement ever attempted in any format.

They'll never get caught. They’re on a mission from God.

Saturday night is a chance to unwind, and to help you we have one of the all time greatest comedies: The Blues Brothers. Aykroyd and Belushi play off each other with flawless timing. We may even have a crack at an orange whip…

Coming Soon...

Bros on Saturday 26th November - a ribald and riotous gay romcom.

A romantic comedy about two gay men maybe, possibly, probably, stumbling towards love. Maybe. They're both very busy.
