A BIT ABOUT PICTUREHOUSE CINEMAS

Our cinemas are at the heart of their neighbourhoods. They are distinctive buildings that blend seamlessly into the fabric of their environment with excellent and original design throughout. These are Cathedrals to Cinema! They are also places to eat, meet and hang out, with welcoming and attentive staff and plenty going on in lively vibrant spaces.

Our film programme is a broad and curated range of quality mainstream, indie, family, foreign-language and documentary films. Through our various strands we also champion classic and contemporary, independent thinking films, providing a quality cinema experience to a diverse and inclusive audience.
We will always try new and unexpected things, engaging with our audience as partners and as friends from all ages and backgrounds. We are your local international cinema.
