Ah, the good old days of the penny rush, where kids could spend Saturday afternoons at the cinema for just 1p. Well, the price may have gone up to £1 (such is life), but every Saturday at 12 midday we screen matinee films aimed at children and families. Parents, carers and the kids at heart can come along (for £4.60), and children who are old enough are welcome to stay and watch the film without supervision (although Picture House staff cannot be responsible for them).

BYOB - BRING YOUR OWN BABY!

Date
9th May - 11.00am
Price
£4.60 and baby goes free!
Details

BYOB screenings are a chance for the parents and carers of babies up to 12months old to get to the cinema without leaving the little one at home.

With raised lighting levels, baby changing and bottle warming facilities and free tea or coffee for each grown-up we aim to make these screenings as comfortable for you as possible.

Doors open at 10.30am, if you want to come down early and catch up with friends, 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.

For more information feel free to email us at: admin@hydeparkpicturehouse.co.uk

Or call 0113 275 2045 to speak to a member of staff.

THE FEMALE GAZE

Date
7th August - 6.30pm
Price
Details

The Female Gaze is a month long programme of events organised together by The Hyde Park Picture House and Village Bookstore & Gallery, celebrating the work of exceptional female photographers past and present, as well as exploring the notion of ‘positive discrimination’ in photography through text and discussion.

By screening two insightful documentaries on Jane Bown and Vivian Maier, as well as holding an accompanying exhibition featuring the work of six contemporary photographers working today, we aim to draw attention to the work of outstanding female photographers who, unlike their male counterparts, continue to be underrepresented.

We will then conclude the programme with a round table discussion featuring panelists from Leeds College of Art, The Tetley and Impressions Gallery, who'll explore the many issues and topics that both the film screenings and exhibition have generated. These include what the 'female gaze' means in terms of photographic theory and whether we should read images produced by women differently. Why women photographers continue to be underrepresented. And are programmes such as this one, which select female only artists, an effective means of response?
