Last year over 600 films were released in the UK. (That’s a lot, right?) Some of these films are fantastically bombastic, with equally bombastic marketing campaigns to boot. However not all new releases can afford to appear on the side of double-decker buses, and as a result many can pass by unnoticed.

That’s why we have Tuesday Wonders! This is our way of highlighting those hidden gems, films that are exciting, important, sometimes a little bit different, but definitely worth seeing. So keep an eye out for what’s showing here every Tuesday, and don’t forget to pick up a loyalty card too, which gets you in for free for every four that you see.

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.

Renewing Our Historic Cinema For All

12th August - 7.00am

Opening on the 2nd November 1914, just three months after the commencement of the First World War, the Hyde Park Picture House is one of only a handful of early cinemas still operating today. Our rich 102 year long history has been full to the brim of on and off screen drama including two world wars, closure threats, celebrity guests and more than a few changes to the way audiences watch and enjoy films. We’ve seen marriage proposals and weddings, we’ve been a location for film and TV and we’ve been the formative cinema experience for scores of young audiences as they discover the world through the medium of film.

At the heart of our good fortune sit two key things, our beautiful Grade II listed building and the film-loving community of Leeds, who have helped to ensure we are still a vibrant and relevant venue more than a century after we first opened our doors. But we’re not complacent and know that our continued survival relies on more than goodwill, but an ambitious plan for a bright and sustainable future. It is for this reason that we are thrilled to announce that the Heritage Lottery Fund have agreed to support our exciting regeneration project: “Renewing Our Historic Cinema For All”. This invaluable support brings £2.4million of lottery investment, including £122,000 in development funding, to help us to protect and restore our existing building, and find a bold and innovative way to ensure it continues to thrive over the next 100 years.

As we now enter an exciting development phase we will be able to search out solutions to the many challenges we face as a period building in a modern world, and identify how we can best serve the community of Leeds. It is our hope that the scheme will not only lead to restoration of our existing building but brand new accessible facilities, making the cinema truly open to everyone. This includes fully accessible toilets, a second screen in the basement to allow us to host even more fantastic film events, a café-bar so audiences don’t have to queue in the rain, and a vibrant learning and heritage programme to allow us to explore and share the many stories our beautiful building and its patrons have to tell. We are more than a little thrilled to start work on this project and there are still many questions we need to answer, but together we will ensure the Hyde Park Picture House is in the best shape for the journey head, and ready to inspire, educate and entertain the audiences of Leeds for many years still to come.
