Cardiff Castle's Underground Cinema reopens in time for Cardiff Animation Festival and the Easter holidays! Experience these animated classics in the castle's 15th century undercroft.

All shows are £5 a ticket, except for CYFRINACH LLYFR KELLS [THE SECRET OF KELLS], which is FREE thanks to the generous support of S4C (online booking is still required). We will be screening a special Welsh-language version of the Oscar-nominated film (with English subtitles) followed by a conversation with special effects animator Lorraine Lordan.

Head for the main castle gate when you arrive and staff will point you towards the undercroft. You don't need to pay an additional entry fee to the castle if you're just watching a film. Ramped access to the undercroft is available, and staff are happy to make your visit as accessible as possible.

We may have to ask for ID to comply with BBFC ratings. Children under 2 will not need a ticket but won't be allocated a seat. Refreshments will be on sale in the undercroft bar, and the films will usually start very promptly!
