Changes to membership

If you are visiting this page, you’re probably a cinemagoer here at the National Science and Media Museum. In 2019 we will be making some changes behind the scenes, but don’t worry—it will continue to be business as usual in our three cinemas. If you are a Picturehouse member you will enjoy the full duration of your current membership, and if it expires while the changes are taking place, an interim scheme will be available offering exactly the same attractive package. You can find more information on the Picturehouse website.

About the cinema

Dedicated to Albert “Cubby” Broccoli, producer of many James Bond films, this cinema shows movies from around the world projected in formats from 16mm to digital 3D—all in the heart of Bradford, UNESCO City of Film. It’s played host to everything from silent films with live piano accompaniment to Super Hi-Vision screenings.

  • Twin 35mm projectors allow the screening of archive film prints, shown using traditional reel change-overs via alternate projectors.
  • In 2012, Cubby Broccoli screened a broadcast from the 2012 London Olympics in Super Hi-Vision—one of only three venues in the UK to do so.
  • Guests interviewed here have included Tim Peake, Olivier Assayas and Jenny Agutter.
