Cinema information

We’re looking forward to welcoming you back to Pictureville Cinema. Some things about your visit will be different to before, and the information on this page should answer any questions you may have.

To keep you safe in and around our cinemas:

  • It is now mandatory to wear a face covering when inside the cinema, unless you are exempt
  • Please use contactless payment if you can
  • We’ve enhanced our cleaning regimes
  • We’re using mechanical ventilation to provide optimum fresh air flow
  • Please don’t move tables—they’re spaced out to keep you safe
