A beautiful independent cinema based within a converted Malthouse on Ely's riverside. A good mix of family, artshouse and blockbuster films.

The Maltings is home to Ely Cinema

Originally on 35mm film, the cinema became fully digital with Dolby 5.1 surround in 2012. The programme contains a mix of family films, blockbusters, live & encore theatre broadcasts, as well as occasional cinema-themed events. Ely Cinema is owned and operated by Babylon ARTS, based at the Babylon Gallery.
