The museum, IMAX and Pictureville are temporarily closed. Find out about our major transformation.

Cubby Broccoli

While the doors to Pictureville Cinema and the National Science and Media Museum remain temporarily closed, we are returning to our Cubby Broccoli screen—bringing a specially curated programme of cult and classic cinema back to one of our three beloved screens.

Free tea and coffee will be offered at every screening in Cubby Broccoli. You can expect a warm welcome from the Pictureville team in a cosy, familiar space as you support Bradford’s only independent cinema. 

About Cubby Broccoli

Cubby Broccoli is one of the three cinema screens at Pictureville Cinema. Named after Albert ‘Cubby’ Broccoli (the producer of many iconic James Bond films), the intimate auditorium has a capacity of 100 seats, with three wheelchair spaces.  

Please note that we are temporarily unable to take cash payments at Cubby Broccoli.

Getting to Cubby Broccoli

Access to the Cubby Broccoli screen is from the back of the museum while the main entrance remains closed. 

Cubby Broccoli is located on level 1 of the National Science and Media Museum.

As the National Science and Media Museum undergoes redevelopment in a once-in-a-generation transformation, the museum foyer is currently inaccessible. As a result, Cubby Broccoli will only be accessible via its rear entrance next to Sharpe Street car park.  

See how to get to Cubby Broccoli from City Park:

Doors will open 30 minutes before each screening and there will be staff located near the entrance to guide you to the screen.  

The entrance to Cubby Broccoli is a short walk from Bradford Interchange train station and Bradford Forster Square train station.
