OPERATION BALCONY ALCHEMY!
Help us transform our historic and beautiful balcony and make it the crowning glory of our wonderful cinema.
The Picture House balcony’s 234 seats in red, crushed velvet with wooden frames and arm rests are the original balcony seats from when the cinema opened in 1921. At the time, these were the best seats in the house and cost 1s 7d, compared to just 1s to sit downstairs. However, the balcony space is now a poor relation to our gorgeously refurbished stalls.
The walls and ceiling have already been painted, the ornate plasterwork gold-leafed and the wall curtains have been replaced. Now it’s time for the seats and floor to be to be transformed too, and we really need your help to raise the £40,000 this will cost.
Ways to support us:
Sponsor a seat and have your name on it
Buy or sell Christmas raffle tickets
Buy a Picture House history book
Pop whatever you can afford into the donation box in the foyer
Donate by cheque, online transfer or PayPal
Organise your own fundraising event – we’ll help you.
