Pictureville Cinema to screen films at University of Bradford’s Theatre in the Mill

The National Science and Media Museum’s Pictureville Cinema will continue its exciting off-site cinema programme at venues across Bradford, as the main cinema remains temporarily closed.  

From 11 April Pictureville is taking up residency at Theatre in the Mill for five weeks to bring a programme of cult, classic, and international cinema, curated in collaboration with University of Bradford students and the team at Theatre in the Mill.  

The programme includes Thursday evening double bills, with themes including Bollywood v Nollywood; Japanese Horror and Yorkshire in Love, along with Anime Afternoons every Saturday and Light Lunch Cinema—screenings of gentle film favourites on Thursdays and Fridays at 12.00.  

The first week of screenings at Theatre in the Mill will be free of charge, with the following four weeks of films priced at the discounted rate of £5 for adults and £3 for concessions and Pictureville members.  
Pictureville Presents will return to The Studio next to the Alhambra Theatre in late May, with more details to be shared soon.

Pictureville Presents: Cinema at The Mill is supported by Film Hub North with National Lottery funding on behalf of the BFI Film Audience Network.   

About the National Science and Media Museum

The National Science and Media Museum in Bradford, West Yorkshire, opened in 1983, and has since become one of the most visited UK museums outside London. It draws on more than three million objects from its national collection to explore the science and culture of image and sound technologies, and their impact on our lives.

The museum creates special exhibitions, interactive galleries and activities for families and adults, and is home to Pictureville, Yorkshire’s biggest independent cinema with three screens including Europe’s first IMAX and the only public Cinerama venue in the world.

Please note, the museum is now temporarily closed to the public until 2025 to undergo a ‘once-in-a-generation’ transformation. Pictureville Cinema and Bar is currently temporarily closed as a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of staff and visitors, following a survey into the presence of Reinforced Aerated Autoclave Concrete (RAAC) in the building.
