BYOBaby screenings are a chance for the parents and carers of babies up to 12 months old, to get to the cinema without leaving the little one at home. With raised lighting levels, reduced volume and baby changing/bottle warming facilities, we aim to make these screenings as comfortable for you as possible.

Tickets are £5.50, which includes a free tea or coffee. If you want to come down early and catch up with friends, doors open at 10.30am and the film starts around 11.15am.

Due to limited space, we advise people to bring babies in slings or car-seats where possible. Numbers are limited for BYOB showings, so it is advisable to book in advance, particularly for the more well known films.

To join the BYOB mailing list, please email: admin@hydeparkpicturehouse.co.uk or call 0113 275 2045 to speak to a member of staff.

-------------------


The Hyde Park Picture House began life as a fairly typical neighbourhood cinema, one of dozens like it to pop-up in Leeds throughout the 20th century. However, 103 years on and it has become an important survivor, one of a only a handful of early cinemas to remain open and a constant presence in the lives of thousands of the city’s residents.

Because of this, few buildings in Leeds have been photographed, illustrated, painted or reimagined as many times as the Hyde Park Picture House. And with every year that asses, increasing numbers of artists are drawn to the building’s curious features and unique history as a source of inspiration and creation.

So as the cinema embarks on the start of crucial regeneration project – supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Leeds City Council – we celebrate some of the more recent interpretations of this now iconic building, and how a once inconspicuous Picture House has now become a rather unlikely and inspiring muse.

Each month Dr. Joe Saunders (University of Leeds) invites an academic philosopher to select a film and provide a short talk following its screening, exploring philosophical themes raised in the work.
