We have some exciting news! From Tuesday 3rd May, for around 2 weeks, access to the cinema will be via the front of the stalls as we will be refurbishing the foyer. However, we are still very much open!

Simply follow the signs, walk past the gallery shop, then down the access ramp where you will find the Box Office just inside the black doors. We will have a pop-up kiosk at the rear of the stalls but there will be no hot drinks served (cold drinks are unaffected).

Please note there will be no wheelchair accessible toilet.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Dear Picture House Supporters

It’s not often I pen an email to you all, but we’d really like to hear your views on a couple of issues we’ve been considering for a while: card payment facilities and advanced / online booking.

We know we’re quite unusual as a cinema in having neither credit card machines nor a computerised box office, and overall we are happy with the way we work (we’ve been doing it this way for a long time!), but we’d like to know what you think, because every once in a while we’re asked why we do things as we do, and whether we will be changing our systems in the future.

I’ve written a very short survey of just 9 multiple choice questions and we’d be grateful if you could take a couple of minutes of your time to give us your feedback. Simply click on the link below.

If you want to make any additional comments, not covered by the survey questions, please feel free to email me, and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Thanks for your continued support.

With best wishes,

Rebekah Fozard
Picture House Manager
