Friends of the Picture House

The Friends of the Picture House is a voluntary group that represents everyone who uses the Picture House. Its elected committee meet regularly to consider what its members want from the Picture House and how the Friends can ensure that the cinema continues to thrive.

A member of the Friends committee attends the Town Council’s Picture House management committee meetings to ensure that the views of the cinema-goers are well represented. We also host bi-monthly ‘Friends Presents’ screenings at the cinema.

Membership of the Friends is free and open to anyone who has an interest in seeing the Picture House continue to cater for the diverse interests of its customers.

New members are always welcome – you can join either by completing a Friends form, available in the foyer of the Picture House, or by emailing ‘foph(at)’ with your full name and email address, confirming confirm that you’d like to join the Friends and be kept informed about all Friends news and meeting details.

If you are happy to volunteer your time with assisting with tasks such as fundraising activities, assisting with organising and attending publicity events, selling raffle tickets, helping with newsletters or other specific projects that arise or can offer any other skills to support the Friends’ projects, please let us know when emailing.
