Cinema is for Everyone
Picturehouse knows the importance of bringing communities together and therefore they champion films made for all ages, backgrounds and walks of life. Picturehouse was also one of the first cinemas to launch autism friendly screenings back in 2008 They provide sensory friendly screenings at the majority of their locations at least once a month to meet those with sensory needs. Furthermore, they aim to make cinema more accessible to local dementia communities by providing a fun and inclusive experience to enable people living with dementia, their families and carers to attend the cinema in a safe and welcoming environment.
Celebrating more than just film
Picturehouse screens 35mm and 70mm special presentations at select Picturehouse Cinemas, welcome independent film collectives and are proud hosts of some of the most visionary film festivals around. Their team of passionate programmers carefully curate a broad range of films, from quality mainstream and family movies to indies, documentaries and foreign language releases. The impressive screens also add to the experience with joint-managing director, Claire Binns stating “We want big ceiling height, because we like big screens,” she says. “For us, it’s not about a small screen and luxury offering, it’s more about a nice big screen, stadium seating as well as the food and drink.”
