Formed in 1989 to challenge the multiplex model, Picturehouse Cinemas own and operate 22 cinemas and programme a further 42 venues across the UK.
Picturehouse Cinemas are located in city centres and are architecturally unique venues that provide café bars, restaurants and live events alongside the traditional moviegoing experience. Their programmes encompass quality mainstream, family, art-house, independent, foreign-language and documentary films.
Picturehouse Cinemas were a pioneer of live satellite cine-casts in the UK, bringing non-film content such as Q&As and talks, concerts, art exhibitions, the New York Met Opera, the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre and the Bolshoi Ballet to community cinema screens. Picturehouse Cinemas have a distribution arm, Picturehouse Entertainment, which distributes both feature films and alternative content to cinemas in the UK and internationally.
Picturehouse Cinemas and Picturehouse Entertainment continue to go from strength to strength following new investment from Cineworld in 2012, with plans to open new cinemas and release a number of theatrical titles in 2016 and beyond.Order Now
