On the Road

After a year of uncertainty, postponements and delays, On the Road – the cinema's exciting off-site film programme – is back! With the Picture House remaining closed for refurbishment until summer 2022, we're continuing to bring you some of the best films from around the world, screened in venues across Leeds.

We are currently have three On the Road film programmes, each based at a different venue in the city:

Picture House Presents at Leeds University Union

Hyde & Seek at Heart Centre

Movie Nights at City Varieties Music Hall

For the latest films we have coming up, follow the links above or visit our what's on page. And see the bottom of this page for specific venue information.


Your safety at these screenings is our number one priority, and we're doing all we can to ensure your visit is both extremely safe as well as enjoyable.

In light of new COVID restrictions coming into effect in England from this Friday, we wanted to confirm all of the measures you can expect to find at our On the Road screenings, to ensure your visit is both safe and enjoyable.

What we’re doing:

  1. Card-payments only
  2. Contactless ticket checks on arrival
  3. Hand-sanitiser available
  4. Staff wearing all required PPE

We're also encouraging you to:

  1. Wear a face mask when entering and leaving the screening
  2. When you arrive, we’d encourage you to check-in using the NHS app
  3. Keep a safe and respectful distance from others
  4. If you have COVID symptoms, do not attend until you have a negative PCR test.

Socially distanced seating

In recent weeks we began introducing a mixture of ‘distanced’ and ‘regular’ screenings, allowing audiences to choose whichever they felt most comfortable with.

However, following recent developments, we’ll now be returning to social distancing for all of our screenings, and will keep this under regular review. For anyone who purchased tickets for a ‘regular’ non-distanced screening this month, we’ve now reduced the capacity of these screenings, to ensure audiences can remain socially distanced.

We will be keeping our safety measures under constant review – and listing the very latest details on this page.

On the Road venues
