Aldeburgh Cinema is a Registered Charity, a world-class cinema since 1919 and home of The Aldeburgh Documentary Festival.

Aldeburgh Cinema has been continuously showing films for 100 years, a feat made possible through the ingenuity of local heroes, starting with gentleman’s outfitter, Walter Hill, who originally built the auditorium alongside his shop. The Cinema was rescued from closure in the 1960s by the determination of remarkable individuals, including Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears, who devoted time and money to ensuring the little town of Aldeburgh still has its own cinema to this day.
