We are holding our first Autism Friendly screening (AFS) of The LEGO Movie (U) to celebrate World Autism Awareness Day. An AFS differs from a normal screening as we will leave the house lights on low, the sound will be turned down slightly, people are free to move around and make noise and there will be a ‘chill-out’ space provided if people wish to leave the screening for a break.

Sat 5th April The LEGO Movie (U) at 5:00pm (doors 4:15pm and no trailers will be played)

Standard ticket prices apply for this Autism Friendly screening.

Please see our Access page for info on accessibility

Parent & Baby Screenings

Posted on 25 September 2013

We offer Parent & Baby screenings at the Picture House, with one screening a month on a Tuesday morning exclusively for parents and their babies aged under 12 months. With the lights turned up a little (and the sound down a notch or two), we will help to create a stress-free environment exclusively for parents and guardians to enjoy films with their babies.

Tickets are at the reduced rate of £6.50 and include a free tea/coffee or glass of squash. We have installed baby changing facilities in the disabled toilet in the foyer and the seats benefit from lots of leg room for baby car seats, bags etc. Level access is available via the emergency door to the right hand side of the cinema for those with prams and pushchairs, and we have plenty of storage at the back of the auditorium to store your pushchairs during the film.

Screenings will either be a U, PG or 12A certificate film. Please note that 12A films are not suitable for very young children, so please consider this if you are bringing toddlers along. Full guidelines on the 12A certificate are available here BBFC website

If a film has subtitles provided we will screen the film with subtitles on so you can follow the dialogue even when it gets a little noisy in the cinema! If a film is supplied without subtitles we will still screen it for Parent & Baby – films are selected based on the age certificate and the general subject matter.

Please note only adults with babies can be admitted to this screening.

If you would like to be added to our database and kept informed about these screenings, please email the Picture House Marketing Officer- * email marketing( at ) *

A year ago Hebden Royd Town Council embarked on its most ambitious project ever – taking a transfer of the ownership of the Hebden Bridge Picture House from Calderdale MBC – raising the funds needed from our annual precept. We did this following a widespread consultation which attracted over 1500 responses –
overwhelmingly in favour of the project.

Twelve months down the line the Picture House is going from strength to strength despite a year which brought us a challenge we could not have envisaged: the devastating floods of summer 2012.
