Chapter Arts Centre (often just referred to as Chapter) is an arts centre in Canton, Cardiff, Wales. It hosts films, plays, performance art and live music, and includes a free art gallery, café and bars. There are also over 60 work spaces, used for an eclectic range of purposes including Chapter's own training courses.

Income for the venue largely derives from the film theatre: as well as showing mainstream Hollywood films, it is the only theatre in Cardiff to show a considerable array of foreign and independent films on a regular basis. Along with the city's Cineworld cinema, Chapter is a venue for the annual Cardiff Film Festival.



  • Gallery spaces
  • Two film theatres (capacities: ~250, ~50)
  • One theatre (150 standing, also seated)
  • Two bars (ground floor has normal opening hours; upstairs is open for specific events)
  • Café
  • Eight spaces for hire (varying sizes)
  • Many spaces for ongoing art production, resident artists, etc


Chapter was established by Christine Kinsey and Bryan Jones in the late 1960s. The venue is a converted and extended school. It was home to the Cardiff Laboratory Theatre.

Everyman Theatre which produces plays at Chapter and presents the annual Everyman Open Air Theatre Festival at the St Fagans National History Museum website is also based at the venue.
