Pictureville Cinema at the National Science and Media Museum, including IMAX, is currently temporarily closed.

To ensure a safe and comfortable experience, we are operating a phased reopening of our museum and cinemas. Our Pictureville screen will reopen on Thursday 17 September 2020, and the IMAX and Cubby Broccoli screens will open on Friday 2 October.

Our ticket on sale date will be announced soon. Please sign up to our cinema newsletter to be one of the first to hear.

You can continue to support us during our temporary period of closure by purchasing a Pictureville membership. You’ll be a member right away, but your 12 month period won’t begin until we reopen. This means that you will still get a whole year of amazing membership benefits.

About Bradford’s IMAX

There’s cinema, then there’s IMAX. Seeing a film on our 60ft-tall screen, the biggest in West Yorkshire, is a truly immersive experience.

Our IMAX theatre has an illustrious history. In 1983, it took Bradford by storm when it became the first IMAX to be opened in Europe; it’s still the biggest screen in the region. With state-of-the-art digital projection and a plush premium seating area, IMAX is the ultimate way to experience the movies—right in the heart of Bradford, UNESCO City of Film.
