IMAX at Pictureville Cinema is temporarily closed until further notice.


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

Watch the latest blockbusters on the biggest screen in West Yorkshire. We also show spectacular 45-minute documentaries, the perfect add-on to your museum visit.

IMAX at Pictureville Cinema has now reopened. Sign up to our cinema newsletter for updates on screenings and tickets.

About Bradford’s IMAX

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.
