What a gem. We were so pleased to be told about Utopia Cinema. The cinema shows a range of films, not all strictly art house but certainly not mainstream. They are shown in their original language with French subtitles, so chances are there is a movie for you to see. The Utopia is to the side of the Popes Palace... More

Stumbled here as we wandered out of the Pope's Palace. The ambiance of the bar could not be beat. Lifting the velvet curtain between the entry to the theater and into the bar/cafe feels like entering a speakeasy. Had the best piece of toast with tapenade and warm goat cheese EVER. Accompanied with a draft beer on a slightly misty... More

They do keep strictly to 10 minutes desk opening before the film, the only plausible reason may be they also support the cafe. Anyway.. Saw les suffragettes and it was fab. Warning.. Seats are small, so if you have wide hips or really long legs you may struggle. I rolled up my coat for back support and stretched my legs... More

A lovely place amongst the walls of the Palais des Papes. I didn't go to the cinema but sat outside at the cafe and it was just a wonderful afternoon of people watching. There is a lovely relaxed atmosphere, great service and just a fantastic location. I absolutely loved it!

This little cinema shows a variety of films from different countries in their original language with French subtitles . it was great to be able to access some entertainment in English from the selection of films on offer. And cheap too - just 4 euros each. Wish there was something similar at home!

In this cinema you can choose what ever film They only project very good quality films from various parts of the world. They are always projected in the orginal version with French subtitles. The seats are confortable, the scene good size, and the audio emission of good quality. Sometimes on hot summer days the place may be somewhat too warm.... More

Nice little theatre showing movies in original version, so for me good for english movies. Large crowd on the night as it was the cine club, so a critique of the movie before and after (in French) which was nice

They have some good films sometimes, often some very "French" artsy films, and everything is in VOST with subtitles, so it's great if you want to see an English-language movie (difficult in France) or experience a movie in a language other than French (while practicing your French reading skills on the subtitles). The only negative is that you can only... More
